Top with 3 pickle chips and equal amounts of ham. Pull outer edges of circle to center, covering filling. Pinch dough to seal. Place bun, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Cover with plastic wrap or towel. Let rise in warm place (80° to 85°F.) 15 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • UNCOVER dough. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. To make sauce: blend mayonnaise, mustard, cayenne pepper and turmeric in small bowl. Serve with warm buns.
