“These are very yummy, moist and focaccia like buns. The original recipe comes from a famours German chef (the German Jamie Oliver), called Tim Mälzer. I have modified it slightly to suit my taste. Feel free to sub other herbs and spices for the Italian blend I used. These are great for dinner or lunch perhaps served with a soup or topped with cheese.”
