Dinner Rolls To Make You Drool


  • 4 T yeast
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 T warm water
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 11 cups flour
  • 2 T salt


  1. Mix together the yeast and warm water in your mixer. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in another bowl, combine the eggs, oil and sugar.
  3. Warm the milk in the microwave (but don't get it hot...just warm) and add it to the yeast mixture in the mixer.
  4. Also, add in the egg mixture. Mix.
  5. Add the flour (mixed with the salt), one cup at a time. Afterwards, continue to mix/knead for 5 minutes.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until about double in size. (I typically just pull out the beaters, put plastic wrap right over my mixer bowl and stick it in the oven that has been warmed to 175...then turned off...and a pot of boiling water is placed in the bottom of the oven. It makes the waiting time so much less!)
  7. After its risen, separate the dough into 6 even balls.
  8. Roll out each ball until the size of a dinner plate, on a lightly floured surface.
  9. Cut into 8 pizza wedge slices.
  10. With each wedge, starting at the large bottom, roll them up.
  11. Place on a greased (sprayed) sheet pan. Place 3 rolls across and 8 down (24 per sheet). Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let rise again until doubled in size. (I just stick them back in the humid oven...that's not on...see above.)
  12. Heat oven to 400 degrees and bake for about 11 minutes, or until tops are a golden brown.
  13. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.
