I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Onion Rolls

These onion rolls are so soft and delish. One of my favorite sandwiches is ham & cheese on a onion rolls. If your family doesn't like onions, make the recipe without the onions.

Helpful Hint:
To help with the rising (quicker) of the bread and to make your bread moister add a pan off boiling water to a cold oven and let the bread rise in the oven.
