Bacon Onion Cheese Epi

I was thinking to bake Hot dragon tail with bacon. But I got ideas with bacon bread. I made the dough with chili sauce, and divided in to 3. Then I made 3 kinds of bacon bread.

One is Hot dragon bread.

The other is Bacon Egg Bun.

And Bacon Onion Cheese Epi, today, I show this recipe, here.
 Simply, bacon and onion, cheese are folded with the dough, and shape it, bake it.
Bacon oil cooks onion, cheese melt, bread smell savory perfectly.
Epi shape, it is easy to tear into one bite.

I rewrite the recipe just for Beacon onion cheese epi without chili sauce in the dough.
