Soft Sandwich Buns

"I bake these soft and golden sandwich buns a few times a week because my whole family loves them," reports Lesa Young of Turpin, Oklahoma. "I made 300 for a wedding reception and received compliments for weeks afterward."

    I've been making these for about 18 years. They are excellent. I was so glad a friend directed them to me years ago. If you're hunting for a success, you've found it in these.

    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 rolls are awsome! My husband requests them weekly instead of buying store bought bread. Wouldn't change a thing about them.

    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.

    I made these to make sandwiches tomorrow, and I added 1/2 tsp McCormicks Garlic & Herb seasoning. They were awesome, and my family suggested a double batch next time.
