My grandmother used to make these at Christmas time, fresh bun dough, take raw bacon and dice it,chop onion, add spices (?)don't know which ones. Take small piece of dough, flatten it and spoon mixture into centre. Roll up and place on cooking sheet. Bake bun to golden brown and lightly brush with butter. Eat warm. These became a hit with everyone at Christmas time. Alas the recipe was never written down and I don't know what the spices were. Does anyone remember this, my Grandmother was Latvian but the buns ere called spek rouse (sic) at least with her dialect that is what we remember the pronunciation.
