Onion Sandwich Rolls

 Onion Sandwich Rolls
These tempting rolls have a mild onion flavor from handy dry soup mix. They are great with Italian meals or as sandwich rolls or hamburger buns. Plus, they freeze well, so you can prepare them ahead and take them out when needed. -Josie-Lynn Belmont, Woodbine, Georgia
