Naming a Cheese Filled Bun

I'm doing some menu planning and I want to deliver a cheese stuffed bun but i have no idea what to call it. It is essentially a 4 cheese blend packed into whole wheat dough thats baked and served hot. I believe that some people call them "Cheese Zombies" however I want to stay away from that name. Anyone have suggestions?

  1. Call it a 4 cheese calzone. Serve with marinara dipping sauce.
    "As a rule, calzones are usually stuffed with cheeses such as ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, Provolone or a type of regional cheese."
    BTW, what's wrong with Zombie's. The Half Priced Book Store has about 100 feet of shelf space devoted to Paranormal Romance. Zombies are "in".

    1. Some places call them stuffed cheese buns.

      Apparently Cheese Zombies are a local culinary specialty of East Contra Costa County.


      1. Use an obscure name so it will invite a series of questions from *new* patrons.
        A four cheese creation should be dubbed ... "Killer Rat Trap".

        1. Looks like an empanada to me. Or a knish.

          1. Grilled cheese bun?
            stuffed cheesey bun?

            (Btw, that looks like an insane amount of cheese inside! Is this suppossed to be a handheld meal? If its an app or side maybe use less...)

            1. You can play on the "bun" and call them "stuffed dairyerres",
              and since there Cato corner makes a Dairyere cheese, it might be nice to include that one.

                1. we have a store here and thats all they sell. They have about 30 different kinds there called a Sally Bun.

                  Hmm haven't had one in awhile the cream cheese,salmon,dill one...

                    1. How about simple and silly like

                      C'est Cheese!

                        1. Baked Cheesy Bun
                          Four Cheese Bun
                          Stuffed Cheese Bun

                          1. How about a yellow submarine to commemorate the Beatles 50th Anniversary?

                            "We all munch on a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine"

                            1. Is there a particular ethnicity or nationality in the overall menu?

                              1. Ooo-goo balls (b/c they're ooey and gooey)
