I enjoyed these and they were very easy to make. I used both Hawaiian Sweet Rolls and Hawaiian Honey Wheat - the store I went to didn't have Savory Butter flavor as another poster mentioned. The sweetness was a little overbearing, but I could taste the concept of the recipe and will definitely be making it again with a different roll. That being said, I followed the recipe to the letter with one addition, I placed the pan of "bites" inside another pan that had about a 1/2-inch water in it. The steam would prevent the rolls from getting hard on both the top and bottom. The smell of this dish was definitely that of WC, the taste was close - close enough, everyone enjoyed them. I didn't have a problem with the cook time as others did, the meat was done in 30 minutes just as stated in the recipe and it wasn't soggy or unevenly cooked. I still have some of the mix left, I just have to run to the store and get some more rolls. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks Kathy W for posting it. TIP: If your rolls are buring, check the location of your oven rack, it may be too close to the top or bottom of the oven, it s/b in the center. Also if the meat is not done in the time recommended, the patty may be too thick, these should be thin burgers, just like the restaurant. UPDATE: I tried the recipe using Hawaiian Savory Rolls WITHOUT the water bath and the rolls were kinda crunchy/toasted, I prefer the softer bun using the water bath.
