    I'm really not sure why everyone is complaining about it being bland. It's a very BASIC recipe and obviously you can and SHOULD add flavoring as you see fit. 
    For me I baked it as instructed but the last 5-10 minutes of baking I glazed the top of the rolls with a blend of melted butter, olive oil, and rosemary. I made double batch and these little guys were gone FAST.  
    My only complaint is the time!!! 15 minutes cooked the bread in the middle but did not brown properly (on bottom or top. I actually baked them a total of 30 minutes hence glazing at the 10 minute mark.  
    Very good recipe though, thanks Paula!
    I made these rolls just the other day and honestly thought they were bland. I couldn't really taste the mayo, it mostly acted to make the rolls have the texture of biscuits. I made them a second time and added a little salt and brushed butter on top before putting them in the oven but still they were just as bland. The best thing about them I thought was that they were super quick and easy, but that doesn't really make up for taste for me!
    The rolls were fast to make and tasted wonderful. However, the cooking time for this recipe, did not work for me. It really depends on the oven being used. I had to add another 15 minutes to the cooking time.
    Quick, Easy, & Delish
    my family and i love these rolls. they r supper easy,great for working parents..
    SUPER easy to whip up! However, I didn't have self-rising flour, so I added 3 teaspoons of baking power and 1 teaspoon of salt. Still, super easy. I threw them in the oven and then started reading the reviews! That's when I panicked! I baked them for 15 minute and didn't achieve the light brown tops. I lifted one up after 15 minutes and saw that it was light brown and pulled them out of the oven. I then sampled one a few minutes later and was SO pleased. I don't know what I was worried about!  
    I will for sure make these again. Just as the recipe says, and I might do the substitute for self-rising flour, I was that happy.  
    I wouldnt consider them rolls but I would consider them good bicuits. Maybe with a little gravy they would make a great breakfast!
    these were so simple to make and they bake so quickly. although i kept them in for a few extra minutes to get them browned but they didn't. tasty and easy. def going to make these again.
    It is just my husband and my self so I made 1/2 recipe. They were great!! After the first time I now make them when the whole family is here . At a spur of a moment you can whip them up.

    I might make these again -- the teenage boys at the Thanksgiving table ate them. But then again, what didn't they eat?

    IF I try this recipe again, I would blend all the liquid ingredients together and add them to the pre-shifted dry stuff. (Not they way the recipe reads). It is really a challenge to mix everything adequately and not create building mortar.

    And then maybe the teenage boys wouldn't be tempted to THROW the rolls before they ate them! (It was quite a party!)
    So glad I looked at all your comments first. I made the following changes or additions: ADD 2 T cold butter, and 1/4 cup shredded cheese, EXTRA 1/4 t baking powder & 1/4 t salt (self-rising flour contains baking powder & salt). CHANGE to 3 T mayo & 1 T sour cream. Baked for 25 min. Rolls were perfect & still easy, however I could't have done it without the rest of you reviewers ~ so 4 stars. Thanks!
    What makes these rolls so great is the ease in making them! They have few ingredients and can be whipped up in no time for dinner any night. They are also delicious!! My family of 5 LOVED them (especially me). Try them. Thanks Paula!!! Karen, Pittsburgh
    Great when in a hurry.
    Paula, these rolls are the best. They go with lunch, dinner and even breakfast! A+ and even easier to make than easy!!!
    yummy and very very easy and fast
    easy to prepare with on hand ingredients. My family loved them!
    Not only are these rolls really easy to make, they came out light and airy, and really tasty. I used skim milk because that's what I had at the time. I also added about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and I used a muffin top pan instead of a conventional muffin pan. I hate muffin bottoms :o)

    Very time I watch Paula I just want to run and make something she just prepared. This time I actually did... You go Paula!
    This was so good and very quick and easy. I added butter and one more tbs of sugar. It was so so good. My three year could not stop asking for them
    I love these rolls. The only problem I have is getting them to brown. They come out of the oven white. I make them in the cupcake pan and also free form. They are so easy, they can be made during the week while making dinner. I use low fat mayonaise and splenda.
    So easy to throw together at the last second!
    I usually love Paula's recipes but had to throw out these rolls. They tasted of mayonaise and blagh flavor and were more like a biscuit.
    Kids liked them, next time I will drizzle with honey.
    The rolls are very easy to make, but they are very bland and heavy like a muffing.
    They were very easy to make and really tasted good. The mayonnaise made them very moist.
    These are so good they make your tongue slap your brains out! They are great and I will make them weekly (if not nightly). I can't wait to share them at all my functions. Pam from Alabama
    Tese were easy to make
    Light , moist, and light golden crisp all around Wonderful recipe
    Looked delicous on the show. They were incredibly simple and easy, but the taste- not so great. My husband who is not very picky didn't like them either. Won't be making them again.
    As a last minute Easter dinner filler, I made these rolls, and they were a hit. Delicious and moist, everyone wanted seconds, but not everyone got seconds. A second batch will be in order for the next function.

    If you like light and fluffy, be forwarned. These may not be the rolls for you. They were definitely more dense than the store-bought variety.
    This is by far the easiest recipe for rolls I have eer tried. They turned out great. My family loves them. I substituted sour cream for the mayo the second time I made them and they were even lighter.
    I'm sorry, but these rolls were awful. They never browned and the consistency was heavy and dense. They looked much like an oversized spit ball. I love Paul, so I was very shocked and disappointed with this recipe.
