Just finished making these bread rolls. This was really easy to make and was finger licking good to eat. My family appreciated this very much and according to my mother this was the best evening snack recipe I ever tried! I had one concern.... while the outer coat was crispy and crunchy, it didn't get a very uniform colour. However it didn't compromise the taste in any possible way. I made a few even without the cheese in the filling, which came out equally good.
