2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 large (1 cup) onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper blend with red pepper or garlic*
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
12 frozen Texas rolls, thawed according to package directions
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add onion, garlic salt and black pepper blend. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and beginning to brown (6 to 7 minutes). Set aside.

Place rolls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Cut 1-inch deep “X” on top of each roll with kitchen shears or knife. Spoon 2 teaspoons onion mixture into each cut in rolls; press mixture down into dough with spoon. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size (about 20 to 30 minutes).

Heat oven to 350°F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops of rolls with melted butter. Serve warm or cool.

*Substitute 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

Recipe Tip

- Coarse black pepper blends are now available in the spice section of your supermarket.

- Thawing and rising time will depend on the temperature of your kitchen.
