Yellow Onion Dinner Rolls

By Greengirl @GrinGarl

As I promised yesterday, today I'm going to share with you another recipe for savory dinner rolls.
Yellow onion dinner rolls
The idea for these rolls came from a bread machine cookbook but since I don't own one I had to adapt it to my stand mixer. Instead of separating the wet ingredients from the dry ones making sure the yeast doesn't touch the water i start by mixing some water with the dry yeast and adding one by one the rest of the ingredients until the dough becomes elastic, soft and cleans itself from the sides of the bowl.

I also kept the recipe vegan using water instead of milk and did not brush the rolls with egg wash before baking. The sauteed onions make these rolls a little sweet and full of flavor. If i change something about this recipe it would be using 3 onions instead of 2 and probably divide the dough in more than 12 balls, maybe 16 or even 20 small ones.

Slash the top before baking and bake them in preheated oven, at 375, for about 20 minutes. Since they have not been brushed with egg, don't wait until the top browns or they get burned.
