My SIL declared these buns "Killer". No higher praise! Easy-the directions were great- an all around great recipe-a keeper for sure.

Good recipe. Nice onion flavor. The only thing I changed was to cut the fat in half and use olive oil instead of butter. I also made 12 rolls instead of 8. That made the sandwiches a little more reasonable in size for those trying to lose some weight. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Very easy and oh so good. I made these for a bbq over memorial day weekend and got rave reviews! Started in my bread machine, rolled them, let them rise and then baked them. Will make these again soon! Thanks humble!

Oh yes! Made these exactly as written and they are wonderful!! I served them as big dinner rolls and it was da-bomb! Oh, I did change one thing, instead of using dried onion, I chopped fresh onion and sauted in butter until caramelized and used that for the filling. Fantasyic! Thanks Brandee!!!

Loved these, they came out so well even tho I realised later I hadn't followed the directions exactly .. next time I will. Messed up the bit about rolling into a log, I kneaded it into a long sausage and cut it, then sort of kneaded my pieces into buns.. they came out nicely, but I can see from your photos that they will come out so much better when I do it properly! I also didn't do any toppings, I was finshing them off late at night and had sort of lost interest by then..... but when DH saw them the next day, he said, WOW!! And they taste fabulous! I'm planning on making these again, for a lunch we are having on the 19th :D Thanks, Brandess, great recipe!

I've made these twice so far. The first time, I totally forgot to add the egg and ended up adding a little extra water because I couldn't figure out why the dough was so dry! They still came out great, but denser than I expected. The second time, I followed the recipe to a "T" and they came out lighter and fluffier. I used toasted minced onion and it added so much flavor. Instead of seeds, I sprinkled regular minced onion on the tops. We used these for burgers and for pork roll and cheese sandwiches. Both came out great. Thanks! P.S. These only need about 15 minutes in my oven. I may try lowering the temp to 350 next time.

Loved these and really appreciated the great instructions and photos that allowed someone as baking challenged as me to come out with a great result. Because I was serving with soup and didn't have a very large baking sheet I formed them into slightly smaller but higher buns. Great aroma while baking and thouroughly enjoyed!
