"These are in the oven now. made them smaller for rolls to go with Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I have made them many times for holidays, potlucks etc. Always turn out good."

"I've always found sandwich rolls rise too high and make the sandwich more bread than filling and my boyfriend hates that! These, however, are different. They don't tower up and they're substantial enough to hold some sloppy (wet) ingredients without falling apart. I love them! What a great recipe. Thanks for submitting."

"These were delicious rolls. I made them yesterday for pulled pork sandwiches but the kids enjoyed them as regular dinner rolls and then I used them this morning to make breakfast sandwiches and they were amazing. I will make these again and again."
