  6. Cut into 12 slices. Place cut side down on topping in prepared pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or golden brown. Immediately invert buns onto a serving platter.

 It is always best to make a double batch, because they are good sliced, buttered and grilled for days after you make them.
