Escape from the mundane, with this exotic and sumptuous snack! A tongue-tickling, garlicky stuffing of mixed veggies and macaroni adorns buttery crisp buns to make a snacky delight that everybody will love. Choose whole wheat mini buns, to get the perfect texture and rustic flavour. Remember to scoop out the centres well to make deep cavities in the buns, so that they will hold a lot of the tangy, cheesy stuffing, because that’s where the fun lies! You can always use the scooped out portions to make bread crumbs to use with other recipes.
