Recipe by CaliforniaJan
READY IN: 3hrs
YIELD: 10 rolls




  • In a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter; add onion. Saute onion about 10 minutes until tender, but not browned. Remove pan from heat and allow onion to cool slightly.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup of the onion mixture; set aside. Place remaining onion mixture and dough ingredients in bread pan, select the Dough setting, and press start.
  • When dough cycle is complete, turn dough onto a floured countertop or cutting board. Gently roll and stretch dough into a 12-inch rope. With a sharp knife, divide dough into 10 pieces.
  • Grease a large baking sheet. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and then flatten slightly. Place rolls on prepared sheet. In a small bowl, beat together remaining egg and 1/2 teaspoon salt; brush egg mixture over each roll. Spread approximately 1 teaspoon of reserved onion mixture on each roll. Let rise in warm oven 30 to 45 minutes until doubled. (Hint: To warm oven slightly turn oven on Warm setting for 2 minutes, then turn it off and place covered dough in oven to rise. Remove sheet from oven to preheat.).
  • Preheat oven to 375°F Bake rolls 20 minutes until they are golden and onion is brown, but not burnt. Remove from oven and cool on racks.
