Onion Sandwich Rolls

These rolls made great hamburger buns. The only problem was that they were HUGE. Quarter pound hamburgers looked very tiny on these buns. We loved the flavor, so next time I will make 12 buns instead of 8. There WILL be a next time! :-)
Onion Sandwich Rolls

3/4 cup lukewarm milk
5 tablespoons lukewarm water
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 large onions, diced, sauteed - and divided
1/4 cup oats
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) envelope active dry yeast
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water

Place the milk, water, butter, salt, sugar, onion powder, diced sauteed onion, oats, flour and yeast into the pan of a bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select the Dough cycle, and press Start.

When the cycle has completed, remove the dough from the machine & cut into 8 equal pieces, and form into balls or oblong hoagies. Place on a baking sheet, and cover loosely with a towel. Set in a draft-free place to rise until doubled in size, about 60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the egg white and water in a cup. Brush over the tops of the risen rolls, and sprinkle with remaining sliced sauteed onion.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool completely, then slice in half horizontally before using.
