Made these rolls for Thanksgiving. Nice recipe, easy and very good. I did spray the tops and added poppy seeds as in the recipe but most of them fell off the rolls when cooled. But over all a nice dinner roll. Thanks for sharing it.

I concur with my fellow reviewers, I needed a quick roll but didn't want to run to a store, nor have a complicated bread project, so this filled the bill perfectly. I painted the tops of the rolls with some butter on a brush when coming out of the oven, and talk about none left! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Novembre 2009

Great rolls!!! So easy and quick for homemade rolls. I made the recipe exactly as written to serve with dinner last night for 4 of us and there isn't any left. My DD boyfriend said that they tasted like the rolls from Bob Evans Restaurant and ate about 3 of them. Thanks for sharing your the recipe. Made for Newest Tag!!
