Piggy Butter Bread Roll

Ah....I've so many recipes waiting to be updated, I don't know which ones to choose. -_- I've been putting them off as they take longer to update.

Decided to update about these piggy butter bread roll first. Trying out a new recipe this time, it's a dinner butter roll recipe, with a crispy buttery crust. If you prefer, you can also substitute with any of your favourite bread buns recipe or use any of the previous bread recipes I shared before.

Piggy burger for dinner that night. :)

There's actually an eatery in Singapore selling similar piggy burgers, saw Honey Bee Sweets sharing about them on her Instagram account. She also baked piggy buns and turned them into piggy burgers, they looked so cute, I had to bake some too.

The teriyaki pork patty I made for the piggy burger.

I kept some piggy buns for breakfast the next day. This time, we had them with luncheon meat, egg and lettuce.

I used melted chocolate to draw the eyes. However, I had wanted to use raisins, but forgot to buy them. -_-


Bread Flour 450g
Instant Yeast 14g
Warm milk 250ml
Sugar 2 tsp
Butter, room temperature 40g
Salt 1/2 tsp

  1. Mix all the ingredients, except butter, in a large bowl to get a dough. Add in butter and knead until dough is springy and soft, this takes around 10 minutes. If you have a bread maker, you can just use the dough function for this step, as well as step 2.

  3. Cover the dough with cling wrap and keep in a warm place for it to rise. This takes around an hour and the dough should double in size.

  5. Dust your work table with some flour, place dough on it. Punch out the air from the dough with your fist.

  7. Divide the dough into 6 portions. Roll them out and form them into balls. Cover with cling wrap and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.

  9. Roll out bread dough and shape them, place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Use one portion of the dough to shape piggy's ears and nostrils.

  12. At the end of 40 minutes, poke 2 holes on piggy's snout using a straw. If you are adding raisins for the eyes, you can do so at this step.
