I'm an avid bread baker and was thrilled to find this recipe. It makes delectably different rolls that are a hit wherever I take them. The onion and mustard flavors go so well with ham or hamburgers and are special enough to serve alongside an elaborate main dish. -Melodie Shumaker, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

"I tried these a couple nights ago to accompany goulash. They were even better today as a sandwich bread with salami and cream cheese! Very nice texture with noticeable yet subtle onion and mustard notes."

"This is one of my go to bread recipes! Instead of making rolls, I make a braided loaf of bread. The mustard makes the loaf a gorgeous yellow color. I get rave reviews whenever I make it."
