Set the Big Green Egg for indirect cooking (with convEGGtor) at 350°F/177°C and lightly grease a Stir Fry & Paella Pan.

Prepare topping and filling as laid out below.

Place dough on a lightly greased work surface and pat or roll it into a rectangle, about 1⁄4” thick. Spread filling evenly over the dough and roll dough into a log, the long way.

Use a serrated knife to slice the log into 16 slices. To make clean cuts, rinse the blade in hot water and wipe it off between slices.

Place buns in the Stir Fry & Paella Pan and pour the remaining topping over them.

Cook sticky buns in the EGG for 25 minutes, or until slightly brown. Remove them from the EGG and loosen their edges with a knife and scoop out with a rubber spatula.

Allow to cool slightly before serving. Store extras at room temperature in an airtight container. Makes 16 buns.
