      Very good and easy to make. I made one change. I didn't have any instant onions so I just finely chopped half of a small onion and used that. I also sprinkled garlic powder on top instead of onion. They are crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. Absolutely delicious.

      These turned out delicious! I halved the recipe and used three cups of bread flour and made six big sandwich buns out of them. If you are a novice bread maker, the salt in a yeast dough recipe is to control the yeast growth as much as to give flavor; I used 1 teaspoon salt for half of the recipe. Anyway, they were easy to make in my stand mixer and they turned out wonderfully! Dee, thanks for the recipe!

      We think that there is a mistake in the amount of salt called for. 2 tablespoons of salt is 36000 milligrams of salt. That is more than 2000 milligrams of salt per roll. We made them with out questioning this and they were not edible by our standards. Other similar recipe's have 1-2 teaspoons of salt which seems better.
