Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Yield 32 rolls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 (1/4-ounce) envelopes active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

How to Make It

  1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; stir in oats and butter. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat; let cool to 110°.

  2. Stir together yeast, 1/2 cup warm water, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a 2-cup measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Beat oat mixture, yeast mixture, flour, salt, and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.

  5. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until dough is doubled in bulk.

  6. Punch dough down, and divide in half; shape each portion into 16 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place evenly into 2 lightly greased 9- x 1 3/4-inch round cakepans.

  7. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

  8. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  9. Note: Reserve 1 portion of dough for Cinnamon Rolls recipe, if desired.
