The aroma when making these rolls was wonderful! I made them using my kitchen aid and needed the whole cup of water to make a workable dough. I ended up with 8 very large, delicious buns. Some of them were used as hamburger buns at dinner tonight. The rest will be for sandwiches. Thanks for posting!
These are SUCH nice rolls! Just the way they make the house smell may be reason enough to bake them. I did change a little--instead of onion powder, I grated an onion and used the resulting juice as part of the initial liquid. And instead of dried onion, I used finely minced, sauteed fresh onion. And (shouldn't do so many things at once) I forgot the egg. I did use a whole egg for the wash and, like 2Bleu before me, added a bit more liquid to make the dough workable. I ended up with ten beauties, which tasted as good as they looked and smelled. Thanks, Annacia!
When you can smell the rolls BEFORE they go into the oven, you know they'll be flavorful! These made wonderful hamburger buns. I mixed the dough in the bread machine, and did need the entire cup of water. I used sesame seeds and a little more minced onion on top. Just delicious! Thanks for posting!
WOW! These are great Buns. This was my first attempt at making buns or rolls and I think it was pretty successful. I used bread flour instead of the all purpose which I know there is a difference but I can't remember what? Anyway it produced a lovely tasting and gorgeous looking bun. Since I was inept at rolling out the dough into a rectangle, one of my 8 rolls was a runt of the litter. But it was a very good first try. Next time I make them, I will either cook them at 350 degrees F or for 15 minutes at the 375. I actually like my crust a little lighter in color. Next time I also plan on adding sauted onions instead of the dried variety. I used two of the rolls for burgers for myself and DH. I took lots of photos, soon to be posted. Thanks for posting Ann.

Wow, these buns deserve 10 stars! They are crusty on the outside and soft on the inside with a wonderful onion-ey aroma. I read the reviews every day, that's how I come across great recipes, so when I saw this one, I immediately had to make it. I had all ingredients on hand except the dried onion flakes so I used onion soup mix, worked like a charm! There is truly no reason to go out and buy mushy, spongy hamburger buns when it's so easy to make these! Thanks, Annacia for a fabulous recipe!
i too needed more water these rolls are the bomb used egg beaters egg whites for the wash great recipe
Yummy! I am so proud of myself! Buddha is the bread maker in our household as I usually don't have good results with yeast recipes. Since he was working today I decided to try my luck. After all, this is a 'Put it all in the KitchenAid and mix' recipe. How could I go wrong? So off I went to try again. When the dough started to pull together and clean the sides of the bowl, I removed it and got real sad upon lifting it out of the bowl.... The dough was stiff and barely manageable. I thought, "What could I have done wrong?" So I added about 2 tbsp more water and then right away it started to become globby and slimy (I wish I had taken a photo of that, lol). So I immediately stopped the mixer thinking I have really made a mess now, it's totally ruined! I also thought "This is exactly why Buddha makes the bread." Well, I continued on anyhow and let it rise for the hour. I looked in and saw a bumpy mess. Buddha just smiled at it and kissed me before going back to work. I took it from the bowl and began to knead it,... and it was still a little stiff, but surprisingly it was rolling out quite nicely! So I continued to make the rolls. It was still working!!! I didn't know how they would be after rising again and baking but figured I had nothing to lose, so I continued on my quest. They were baked in 20 minutes. I spread some soft butter over the tops and Buddha and I gobbled them up. After Buddha tried a bite of his I said "They're great huh?" He replied "See, that's why I don't let you make bread." I looked up confused... He continued "You'll take my job away." LOL. We laughed. We didn't eat all eight of them, but we did eat 3 each. These are definitely 'no fail' rolls. They turned out perfect. Thanks for posting this recipe Annacia, it is a must try for those who think they can't make great rolls and the flavor of these onion buns is fantastic! ~Bird :)
