Norm's Onion Rolls

I too have baked a batch of Norm's Onion Rolls. They are wonderful.

I added 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds to the dough as well as an extra quarter cup or so of rehydrated dried onions. Otherwise, I followed his recipe.

I may have gotten a little too carried away with the poppy seeds and onions, but they were awfully tasty.

To post?  LOL. 

These look WONDERFUL.  I really am going to have to make them.

Floyd, those look great and I bet they didn't last long. I also substituted sesame seeds for the poppy on some and they were really good too. Just an idea.

Will any one who tried Norm's onion rolls, give me the recipe using the measuring cups and spoons instead of ounces and pounds,

Thank you,

Were you ever able to get the recipe using measuring cups and spoons instead of oz & lbs? I could do with the weights, but the tiny amount of oz for the salt, etc, are too small for my scale. Jean P. (VA)

Hi msbreadbaker, here is the measures Norm answered me with:

Norm's onion rolls cups and spoons per request

sugar 3/4 of an ounce (1 and 1/2 Table Spoon)

malt syrup 1/4 of and ounce (1 tea spoon) (Note if you do have the malt syurp you can use 1 ounce of sugar (2 table spoon) to replace the Malt and sugar above)

salt 1/4 ounce (1 and 1/2 tea spoon)

eggs 3/4 ounce (1 and 1/2 table spoon)

hi gluten flour 1 pound (sift first 4 cups)

yeast 1/2 ounce (cake) variable if usine the 2 oz cake found in stores 1/4 cake) if using dry 2 packets ( i think they come in 1/8 ounce) if using dry bulk yeast 1 and 1/2 teaspoon but that can be adjusted more or less depending on how fast you want the rolls to rise.
