1 tablespoons sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 cup butter, divided
4 cups flour

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Add two cups of flour, 1 teaspoon salt, onion soup packet, and eggs. With an electric mixer gradually add sour cream mixture. Fold in remaining flour. Cover and either refrigerate over night or leave covered on the counter and allow to rise until dough doubles, about 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 375˚ F. Grease 9x13 inch pan. In small microwavable bowl melt ½ cup butter; set aside. Place French Fried Onions in small bowl and stir in ½ teaspoon salt; set aside. On well floured surface knead dough briefly, divide into 15 segments, and form into balls. Dip each ball in butter then French Fried Onions. Place in pan evenly. Using your hands press rolls down and together in the pan creating an even and continuous layer of roll dough. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

*I feel like there are not enough FUN yeast breads out there and so I decided to create some. One day, I had a brillant idea to incorporate seasoning mixes into yeast breads. This bread features Lipton Onion Soup Mix Packets. I have already posted one with Ranch Dressing packets...stay tuned for more!
