French Leafy Buns

Submitted by: MADEMCHE

Introduction

We used Portuguese buns, not wholewheat but are really fresh and use very few and only natural ingredients, plus are quite low in sodium. If you use a different bun you may want to re-calculate the recipe. We also used Eden Organic No-Salt added beans. They are fantastic.
