H} Let’s start with the middle part of the flower bread, roll out the dough and add chopped 1/2 or one sausage. Seal the ends of the dough like a normal bun and make sure it looks like a small ball. Place it in the middle on a lined baking tray

I} Now take the second dough {small}, use a rolling pin to flatten it, place a sausage at the bigger end, and start to roll like a swiss. Filling / sausage can’t be seen, if the filling starts to show a little bit from the edges of the rolled dough just pinch those areas with your fingers to seal and keep on rolling.

J} Now slice the rolled sausage into half and then add them to the sides of the first ball placed on a lined baking sheet. See the photo below:

M} Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C (no fan) for 15-20 minutes or 170C (fan forced) for 15-20 minutes or until well baked

N} When ready, remove and place them on a cloth and take the remaining half tbsp. of butter, and gently touch up the flower bread rolls with it to give the bread a nice shiny soft finish.

O} Cover the buns in the cloth for about 10minutes before serving. This gives the butter time to get absorbed fully into the bread rolls and it makes them soft.
