Moms Goody Buns Recipe

When my husband and I started dating he came to my apartment one day and saw my rolling pin.  He couldn’t believe it was the exact same type as his Mom had had – missing cap and all!  Unfortunately his mom passed away before we met so I never was lucky enough to meet her but I really wish I would have.  That’s her in the picture with the Goody Buns.  We thought it only fitting that she be there.  From all of the stories he has told me I think we would have been great friends.  I also would have loved to of had the chance to tell her thank you for raising such a wonderful man.  The recipe I’m sharing with you today – Moms Goody Buns – is from her cookbook and I hope you love it as much as we do.  It’s a very simple and economical recipe but a big favorite with our family.

Moms Goody Buns Recipe

A few years back we made cookbooks for Joes brothers with their moms recipes.  We had all of the recipes scanned and saved on the computer but never got around to printing them.  Well wouldn’t you know the hard drive went bad and they were lost.  We were afraid we wouldn’t see the recipes again but then his brother was able to find his copy and share it with us so we could print our own.  We had wanted to make Moms Goody Buns for quite some time so of course the day he let us borrow it this was the first thing we made.

    Loved the recipe. But I do have one question, is the hamburger raw when you put it in the bun and then the oven?
  8. Don't the buns get hard as rocks? Other than that, they sound delicious and easy.
    • Great question, Mary! The combination of the juices in the hamburger mixture coupled with wrapping the foil around them keeps them from getting hard. I worried about the same thing the first time my husband made them. Give them a try and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
