Caramelized Onion Rolls

Ok, so I have a guest who is staying overnight. I didn’t have time to make a big dinner (Go to the grocery store etc). So, I pulled out a container of leftover BBQ Pulled Pork. I love making bread and one of the things I tried to do since I started housekeeping is not have purchased bread in the house. Yes, sometimes, I need to purchase bread, but when I can, I try to make my own bread. I normally purchase onion bread from the store, for hot sandwiches. I decided today to try my hand at making my own rolls.


1/2 cup of warm water

1 large egg

2 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 tablespoon of active dry yeast

1 tablespoon of butter, soften

1/4 cup of caramelized Spanish onion, chopped


  1. Combine all ingredients (minus onions) and knead until smooth and elastic (you will have a very sticky dough)
  2. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover dough and let it rise for 1 hour.
  3. Caramelize your onions and allow to cool.
  4. Punch down dough and knead the caramelized onions into the dough.
  5. Divide the dough into 8 balls and place on an ungreased baking tray
  6. Flatten out the balls of dough to 1/2 inch discs
  7. Allow dough to rise for 1 hour
  8. Bake at 375F for 15 minutes
