  • Prepare the dough then cut and shape into buns after the first rising (both links contain step-by-step photos).
  • In a bowl, stir together the chopped corned beef, scallions and dehydrated onion.
  • Take a piece of dough and flatten between your palms. Alternatively, use a rolling pin.
  • Place a heaping tablespoonful of the corned beef mixture at the center of the flattened dough.
  • Gather the edges of the dough to seal the filling. Roll in bread crumbs. 
  • Lay the filled dough on a baking tray with the seams tucked underneath. Make sure that they are at least two inches apart.
  • Leave the filled dough to rise a second time for 30 to 45 minutes or until doubled.
  • About 10 to 15 minutes before the second rising time is up, preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Bake the corned beef pan de sal for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Serve the corned beef pan de sal while hot.


The exact number of buns you can make depends on how small or large you want them.
