    I made these for Thanksgiving dinner and thought that they were very good. I think everyone else agreed! I am making them again today for a birthday party. I have also made them for an event and served them split and used pulled pork and slaw to fill them. YUM!!!! Thanks for the great recipe.

    I LOVE homemade bread. This looks heavenly....Can't wait to make them. It is too hot and humid here so I'll have to wait for cooler weather. Thanks!
