   CHINESE PORK SAUSAGE BUNS (Lop Cheung Bow)
   
   DOUGH: 1/2 recipe of basic bun dough.
   
   FILLING: 6 pairs of Chinese pork sausage, cut into halves. You should
   have 24 3-inch sausages. [These are very good, sweet sausages. I
   can't think of anything to substitute for them.  S.C.]
   
   Divide dough into 24 balls.  Roll each ball into 2-inch rounds.
   
   Place sausage in middle and fold dough over, leaving ends open.
   Place seam side down on square piece of was paper.  Let rise in warm
   place for 1 hour or so.
   
   Steam for 10 minutes.  Pork Sausage Buns can also be baked at 350F
   for 20 to 25 minutes.  Mix beaten egg whites with a little water and
   sugar and brush buns (to keep crust soft).  Brush with melted butter
   when done.
