I made these for the 1st time a couple weeks ago. I didn’t have any poppyseeds so left those out and I couldn’t find any horseradish “spread” at my local grocery store so I used just the tiniest pinch of regular prepared horseradish on the bottom of each bun. I also could only let them sit in the fridge for about an hour before we needed to eat lunch that day. My teenage daughter who is THE pickiest eater on planet Earth loved them. Tomorrow night I am making a double batch of the sauce and pouring it over baked chicken breasts for a quick and easy dinner. I’m also planning on making the sauce and pouring it over plain Hawaiian rolls and baking them at Easter for a quick and easy and DIFFERENT side for Easter dinner! The sauce is the Boss lol! Soooooo tasty!

I used Regular dinner rolls, as I do not like really sweet bread, and I only used 6 but left the rest of the recipe as is. It came out really well and we enjoyed it.

The recipe does not call for 18 rolls but 18 oz. The 12 roll package is 18 oz. I use 1 T. each of brown sugar, honey dijon mustard, and poppyseeds. 1 t. Worchestershire. No onion or horseradish sauce. Covered with foil 10 min., uncover, bake 12 min. more. Can make right away.

Delicious, but note: The video shows 12 rolls in a square pan, not a 13x9 inch pan. The printed recipe says it makes 12 rolls, but it calls for an 18 oz package of rolls, an 18 ounce package of rolls has 18 rolls. So, it looks like the video is showing a 12 oz package of rolls, with 12 rolls in a square pan, but the printed recipe calls for 18 rolls, but says it makes 12. SO, wondering if this can be fixed. I did make 18 rolls, and I did 1 1/2 times the other ingredients. Regardless, this is good!

I left the horseradish sauce off, but did the rest exactly as written. I took it to a church function, and it was a hit. Everyone wanted my recipe.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a sweet tooth, I’ve never met a candy I haven’t liked. But this meal was too sweet. If the Brown sugar was omitted, that would cut back on the sweetness. I’d definitely make it again without the brown sugar.
