My second bump in the road making these rolls, was that I didn’t have a spray bottle. This was needed both for creating a little steam in the oven at the beginning of baking and for putting on the seeds on the tops of the rolls. I ended up using flax seeds instead of the more traditional sesame or poppy seeds. They fell off the finished rolls easier than I think the sesame or poppy seeds would have, but they still tasted good.
I made these in mind of using for buns for bison burgers. To match the size of the rolls, I made my patties a little smaller than normal, between a “slider” sized patty and a regular sized patty. The burgers were kept pretty simple with a single slice of provolone and a piece of lettuce. They definitely made a tasty MLKjr Day dinner.
