As an avid bread baker, I 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, but the buns are special enough to serve alongside an elaborate main dish. —Melodie Shumaker, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
2 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
3 tablespoons dried minced onion
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Optional: Beaten egg, poppy seeds and additional dried minced onion
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, onion, mustard, oil, sugar, salt and 4 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; divide into 24 pieces. Flatten each piece into a 3-in. circle. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. If desired, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with poppy seeds or dried minced onion.
Bake at 350° until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
