No Knead Onion Rolls

I had high hopes for these onion rolls.
Especially as Kahuna has outdone himself this year in the onion growing department.
At the moment, fine onion recipes rank right up there in my estimation with chocolate recipes, wafting around my kitchen ceiling just waiting for inspiration and energy to collide.
Look at these babies.  Beautiful, yes?
I'm happy to report they are every bit as beautiful once baked.  Not to mention oniony and delicious.
And they rose almost as high as my fingers.
I love that in a roll.

The only change I made to these No Knead Onion Rolls, recipe from Real Simple Nov. 2011 issue, was in step one, browning the onions -- mine were plenty brown after just 12 minutes in the skillet, not the 15 - 18 minutes recommended.

So give these a try, especially if you're looking for a great roll recipe and happen to have a few onions on hand.  And if you have any great onion recipes to share?  I'd love to hear about them.

NOTE:  Other highly recommended roll recipes that I will personally stake my apron on:  garlic cheese rolls and mile high rolls.  Because you can never have too many fabulous roll recipes.

I will try these, you have such a nice crop of onions!! I have never had any luck with onions.
I think it gets too hot.
As much as everyone around here loves onions I know it will be a hit.
I hope your week is going well.

Oh Lynn, thank you so much for your comment. I thought I had your email but I don't. You know the quote that you said " A quiet heart is content with what God gives. It is enough." That is one of my favorites but I always want to live in " It is enough." I have really searched this summer and read and tried to learn about prayer. I have been convicted in my heart about how I need to be more God centered in my praying rather the selfish me centered at where I live.
I know that I will get to that place where I will look back and I will see what God was teaching me through the "No, not now and soon," Not to mention the " Will you trust me?"
Out of all of my devotional books I always come back to E.E. She has taught me so much through these years and I really do not know what I would have done without her instruction. Her and Corrie Ten Boom. Ruth Graham too, My three favorites.
It is so nice that God has been teaching you this too. It blesses me so deeply. Thank you so much for sharing, I am so thankful.

Farm Girl, I don't know if you have a Moms in Touch (now Moms in Prayer) group near you, but if you do you might really enjoy it. Our group meets once a week for an hour, and everyone in it has college or career-aged kids. Maybe there are some homeschooling moms who have a group near you. I highly recommend them. Mine is the highlight of my week!

Hi Lynn, It was so nice to get your comment. Your blog looks so great with so many wonderful recipes. I will enjoy reading your posts. The tips I read for big pumpkins was to pinch off the first baby pumpkin and let the next one develop. Use the stemin of the male flower to rub on the female stemin to pollenate it and not just leave it to the bees. Pinch off any new coming baby pumpkins after the one looks like it will take (size of a grapefruit). It also said to fertilize with with fish fertilizer and keep the vine well watered but don't get the leaves wet as mildew will form on the leaves. It said to trim the end of the vine about 10 out further than your pumpkin. I wouldn't reccomend that as after I did that our pumpkin stopped growing. So, the variety I have may not like that. I hope this helps and good luck on your pumpkin growing :)

Elena, thank you for all the wonderful pumpkin growing tips! We will have to give them a try for next year's crop. We are enjoying the garden but still have so much to learn.
