Tasty ways to top your buns

As delicious as they are simply toasted with butter, you can take your buns up a gear with these four irresistible ideas: 

- Top our salted caramel and chocolate hot cross buns with chocolate and hazelnut spread and maple-roasted pear slices. 

- Grill bacon until crisp, then serve on our chilli and cheese hot cross buns for an epic take on a classic bacon sarnie. 

- Whip butter with a little cinnamon, brown sugar and mixed spice, then spread over our luxury hot cross buns. 

- Make a quick blueberry compote by simmering blueberries with sugar, then serve on toasted blueberry hot cross buns with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Chris Baber's hot cross brunch

Shake up your breakfast with chef Chris Baber's new idea, using our chilli and cheese hot cross buns. 

To make it, grill bacon until crisp and slice half an avocado. Fry an egg until it's just how you like it. Spread the toasted chilli cheese buns with a little chilli jam or hot sauce, then assemble in a sandwich with avocado, bacon and a fried egg on top.

Pick up the buns in store and get set to spice up your weekend brekkie.
