More rolls

these are made from the onion roll formula but one whole large egg was used rather than the 3/4 oz in the regular formula and baked at 400 with no steamseeded horns

those look great did you just roll them like croissants?  exactly salt sticks allways (well at least it the bakeries i worked at) got caraway seeds it adds a great taste with the salt


the extra egg increases oven spring so no steam is needed and you will get a thin but crisp crust

Those made my mouth water. We are lucky to have you around . I had A LOT of christmas things to do today, and was just checking in for a second. Now you have changed my day. I may just spend the day with flour on my hands instead of running around being stressed out. Those gifts might just get ordered online while the rolls rise!


   You outdid yourself on those. It definately made me have a craving!

30 minutes to mix


45 minutes first and only rise


15 minutes or less to shape


30 minutes proof


15 minutes bake at 400


done

regular onion rolls? I can't get them out of my mind! The texture looks nothing like the ones I see on here that David and  Floydm and others have done. These look like the softest, freshest "bun" I have seen in a while. Idid make bread today, but this is the third time I've come back to these rolls of yours. I searched your rolls on here, do you mind telling me which one to start with( there are several post. ) Your rolls are so legendary Floydm did the ode to them in that one post. I hate to be a pest Norm, I know you are busy this time of year with all those Christmas goodies you do for your friends and neighbors, but if you could point me in the right direction/ formula, I would be very grateful.

and you even answered my unsaid question about the fresh yeast issue. I live in the country where supplies are at least an hour away. Thank you Norm for taking the time to answer my questions.
