French Onion Pan Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Linda Thomas

A crusty topping of parmesan cheese and onion soup mix adds lots of flavor to these rolls. Great with soup or a salad.

These are really good! The only thing is they are quite strongly flavored. So they need to be served with appropriate food. I served them with steak and they tasted great but I could see them overshadowing less flavorful foods. Thanks for submitting them though! They are excellent!!
