Love this recipe. Sprinkled "everything but the bagel" seasoning on top, thinking next time, adding dehydrated garlic to one and onion to the next

This recipe was amazing !!!! I cheated by using the dough section though of an old bread machine. And then followed the remainder of the instructions. I think next time may add a wee bit less flour, as they weren't as light as the regular bakery store ones ... but maybe this is the way original Portuguese buns are supposed to be. All I know, crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside. I made a breakfast egg sandwich with half of a bun this AM (I'm a Type 1 Diabetic so try to watch my carb intake) ... and all I can say .... sooooo good! Thank you so much @Eddy for sharing this recipe with us!!! I rarely buy store made bread due to how it goes wonky quickly and hey ... that's lost money for a foodie on a tight budget. I posted a picture of how they looked on Instagram ... hopefully links are allowed in the comment area ... otherwise ... look for FatCatAnna ... https://www.instagram.com/p/Cf0KlIeMyy3/

Anyone try this with ancient grain flour like Einkorn? Did you make any modifications for the lower gluten content?
