"Nice and quick!! All the advice below is great!"
"I am a novice when it comes to baking anything with yeast. This recipe looked so easy that I wanted to give it a try. I made them twice within 2 hours, so the timing is right on. My second batch turned out better.I purchased the yeast (not instant) in a 3-packet sleeve. First time, I measured out 2 Tbsp and had some yeast left in the 3rd packet. Second time, I followed the packet directions as having about 2 Tbsp in all 3, so dumped all 3 yeast packets in.First time I used one 12x17" baking pan; 12 rolls were too close together. They baked a bit flat. Second time, I baked 6 rolls at a time which gave them more space. They looked much more like hamburger rolls.First time I baked them 10 minutes which left the bottoms quite brown. Second time I baked them 8 or even 7 minutes which left them better on the bottom but still somewhat brown.I am glad I took a chance and had fun this recipe. I am bringing the second batch to a party this afternoon to be used with pork barbecue. I tried one (from the first batch) - DELICIOUS! Since the remaining 11 of the first batch are someone flatter, they should do great split, filled with cheese and meat, then grilled."
"Never baked buns beforeso I tried this exile OMG fantastic buns thank you it's now in my recipe box"
"I would recommend making sure the egg is room temperature. I would also say that if you want larger buns to let them rise a little bit longer. I used the food processor to mix it and it worked out fabulous."
"Very good recipe!!!! thanks for sharing! I just did it and it was perfect just like the picture!! and if it fails, maybe it's because yeast is bad, so remember to test the yeast before making the recipe."
