People always ask me this question: How do you keep your weight under control with all the yummy desserts and breads you make? I usually will reply with a big smile : )) It is a secret!
Actually, there is no secret to keep a healthy weight while enjoying the foods you like. Recently I read a cookbook on Japanese desserts. The author claimed that she lost a total of 80 pounds while eating Japanese desserts using the recipes in the book over a period of 7 years. And the fact that she is an Italian, not Japanese, made me want to find out more. Of course, eating just any dessert would not make you lose weight. But eating the right kind of desserts--not excessively sweet, not too high in calories, and eating them in moderation--can satisfy your cravings without making you put on some extra pounds.

I called it the Taiwanese version of cinnamon roll. Instead of using sugary filling and glaze, it is replaced by pork sung and topped with shredded cheese. Any type of bread dough, like tong zhong, whole wheat or all white, etc, could be used. Perfect option for those who prefer savory instead of sweet bread.
