These onion rolls are great for burgers, subs and sandwiches. The onion adds the perfect amount of flavor to a light and airy bread that is even delicious by its self. Easy to make, and everyone will love them.
- 5 cups flour (I use high gluten)
- 2 cups hot water
- 4 tablespoons olive oil

- Cooking spray
- In a large mixing bowl, add water.
- Sprinkle yeast over water, then salt, then olive oil.
- Add flour a cup at a time, working it in completely before adding more.

- Knead for 10 minutes.
- Spray a clean mixing bowl with cooking spray, and place ball of dough into it.
