Do you love “everything” bagels? If so, you will adore these homemade Everything Onion Buns. Topped generously with onion, garlic, poppy seeds and sesame seeds and studded on the inside with sautéed onions. A fantastic bun that’s begging to be filled with shaved pastrami or your favourite juicy hamburger.
My favourite thing about this recipe is the sautéed onions nestled throughout the soft interior. For those who don’t know yet, my husband HATES onions, meaning here that these are all mine to eat. I may have made them deliberately for this reason…..just maybe.
I can honestly say that it pains me to buy store bought bread and buns that are loaded with preservatives when making these fantastic buns is so easy. Unfortunately convenience trumps homemade when there’s just not enough hours in the day. When you have the time, you won’t regret spending it to make these Everything Onion Buns. They freeze well in a sealed bag and will keep for several weeks in the freezer or 3 days on the counter.
For these buns I chose to shape them into a Kaiser knot so the topping had a few more edges to cling to. To form in Kaiser fashion, roll dough ball into an approximate 10” rope. Literally tie the rope into a knot, and tuck one loose end over the top and the other loose end under the bottom.
