“These are easy with the help of your bread machine and taste way better than the store bought rolls. Directions are given for a 1 1/2 lb. machine. Note: in my photo the rolls are pictured with "Excellent Pulled Pork", which is delicious! 6/20/10 note: Many reviewers have noted the dough seems sticky. I always watch my machine as it starts to knead the dough and if it is looking sticky at the time, add more flour then. However, I am changing the recipe from 3 Cups flour to 3 1/4 cups flour today so definitely don't add additional flour unless the dough looks too moist.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.).
  5. 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.
