“I love this recipe because the rolls turn out soo nice and moist!! This recipe came from a book i purchased called "More Breaking Bread" with Father Dominic Garramone. In the origional recipe there is only 2T of minced onion and the onion salt is actualy regular and not onion. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE onion so these are very oniony and they same me time because of the bread machine!! Make them for my lunches for work during the week, rolls that i find at the store just don't have the onion taste i want, and these are perfect for me and my boyfriend!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add water, milk, salt, bread flour, 3T onion, sugar and yeast to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle.
  2. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces for dinner buns and 4 pieces for larger sandwich buns. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place balls on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  3. Brush rolls lightly with milk and sprinkle with 1T onion, pressing onion gently into dough. (I personally just like to dump onion on the cutting board and just roll or press the roll into it! Bring on the onion!) Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, or until done. Remove from sheet and let cool on wire rack.
