Grammy’s Yeast Rolls

Yields36 Servings

 2 packets active dry yeast
 2 ½ cups very warm water
 ½ cup vegetable oil
 ½ cup sugar
 2 tsp salt
 7 cups all purpose flour
 1 egg (beaten)
1

Dissolve 2 packets of yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water and set aside.

2

In a large bowl, mix oil, sugar, salt, and 2 cups of very warm water. Then, add yeast mixture and stir.

3

Add 3-4 cups of flour and stir until dough becomes smooth. Add one beaten egg and stir again.

4

Keep adding flour a cup at a time until dough becomes very stiff. About 4 or 5 cups.

5

Once dough is stiff, knead in bowl (with hands) adding flour if sticky. Then, turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth. About 5 minutes.

6

Place dough into greased mixing bowl and cover with kitchen towel. Allow dough to rise double.

7

Once dough is double in size, punch down and pinch into buns (about the size of a large egg). Place buns 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with kitchen towels and allow to rise double again.

8

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush tops with melted butter and bake for 6-8 minutes. Buns should be a slight golden brown on top and not too dark on bottom.

9

Remove from oven and brush with melted butter again. Enjoy!
