We love Onion Buns!! Great with corned beef sandwiches or if you are wanting something different and exciting to go with a traditional turkey sandwich, these are perfect!! As you know those store bought versions are not cheap. And I have seen them run as much $5 for a package of 6...these cost less than .90 cents for all 8, I mean who can beat that, right?!
1 loaf prepackaged dough, thawed
3 T butter, melted (divided)
2 tsp yellow onion, grated (in my opinion, could definitely have added a bit more)
Sprinkled with kosher salt
Preheat oven to 170F. Spray a 9x13 pan. Place dough on floured surface & cut into 8 equal pieces. Take each piece and roll it into approximately 6 inch in length and 1/4 inch round tube (basically it's going to look like a small snake when you are done). And I let gravity do all the work for me. I held each piece in my hand & rolled it in my palms until it was the right length. Starting at 1 end, roll into the center & place in the pan, repeat with each piece. Lightly spray dough with cooking spray, then turn stove off as you place dough in to rise. Let rise about 90 mins or until it's doubled in size, then remove. In a small bowl, melt 2 T butter and add grated onions. Brush on top of buns. Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 25-30 mins. Remove and let cool for about 10 mins then brush on 1 T, melted butter and sprinkle with kosher salt.
