Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups water
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3 tablespoons butter
1 package active dry yeast
1/3 cup warm water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
4-3/4 to 5-1/4 cups flour

Instructions

In a saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil; add oats and butter. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat; cool to lukewarm. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup warm water. Add oat mixture, sugars, salt and 4 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; allow to rest for 10 minutes. Shape into 18 balls. Place rolls in two greased 9-inch round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan to cool.
