I added some garlic powder, substituted 1/3 c melted butter for the egg white, and drizzled the extra butter over the rolls before baking. Delicious! If you want to impress your friends and family, make these rolls. They'll think you're a culinary genius.
I made these today, for Easter dinner and they were outstanding. I did not have fennel seeds so instead I added dill seed with the combination of sesame and poppy seed. I also added some minced dry garlic and some of my kosher salt blend. They look fantastic and taste just as good. It is definitely a keeper. You are the star and look like you have slaved all day, when you serve these rolls. I will make them again.
Very easy, tasty and good recipe. Although I didn't care for the fennel seed taste, don't think I'll use it next time, just the poppy and sesame. Am making them tonight for Christmas Eve Supper.
