Ham and corn buns

We're going to visit my uncle tomorrow for a little family lunch gathering.  My cousin has requested some baked goodies a few weeks ago after seeing some of my posts on Facebook.  So I decided to bake some buns :)  Simple, fresh, and yummy!

Ham and Corn Buns
(12 Servings ~ 165 calories each)

Basic white bread dough (recipe) from my other post
1/2 can of yellow corn
3 slices of chopped ham
1 tbsp light mayo
pinch of pepper
pinch of dried basil

1) Prepare basic white bread dough with a bread machine.
2) After the dough cycle is completed, punch dough, then divide dough into 12 pieces and cover with plastic wrap.  Let it rest for 15 minutes.

3) Meanwhile, prepare the bun fillings by chopping the ham into pieces, mix in yellow corn, light mayo, pepper and dried basil and set aside.
4) Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface.  Put about 1 tbsp of the filling, then wrap it up. 
5) Place the filled dough on baking paper, round side up, cover with plastic wrap and let it raise for another 30-40 minutes or until doubled.

6) Preheat oven to 375F.
7) Prepare egg wash by mixing 1 tbsp of water with 1 egg yolk (optional).  Brush egg wash on top of the buns right before you put them in the oven.

8) Bake at 375F for 13-17 minutes until golden brown.
Look at how fluffy the bread is!

Bringing these to my uncle and cousin :)
