Yield 18 buns



  • 5 1/2 to 6 cups bread flour, divided
  • 2 (0.25oz each) packages (14g) or 4 1/2 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons instant minced onion
  • 1 large egg

Egg wash

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons instant minced onion
  • 1 large egg (slightly beaten)


  • In stand mixer bowl, add 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt and pepper; mix well. In saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat milk, water and oil to 120-130°F. Add to flour mixture. Add mustard, minced onion and egg. Using a paddle attachment, blend on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes.
  • Switch to dough hook attachment. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a firm dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 8 minutes.
    (NOTE: For hand mixing: following above steps, mix ingredients in large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or dough whisk. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic.)
  • Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after poking dough with finger down to second knuckle, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough. Divide into 3 parts. Divide each third into 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place on greased cookie sheets; flatten to a 3-inch diameter. Cover; let rise in warm place until indentation remains after lightly touching.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Prepare egg wash: Combine water and instant minced onion; let stand while rolls are rising.
  • Combine slightly beaten egg and onion mixture; brush mixture on top of risen rolls. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets; cool on wire rack.
