Recipe Notes

If you find the that buns fall apart while being eaten, butter and toast the cut sides of the bun before serving.

Freeze for up to 1 year.

To Thaw: Remove from freezer and allow to thaw, in an open bag, on the counter. Or, if you're in a hurry, place rolls in a cold oven and set the temperature to 350°. Once the pre-heat is finished, remove the rolls and they should be ready to use.
