Oatmeal Dinner Rolls
One of our very favorite dinner roll recipes
2 cups water
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
2 envelopes active dry yeast
1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
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 degrees.
Stir together yeast, 1/2 cup warm water, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a 2-cup measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
Beat oat mixture, yeast mixture, flour, salt, and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes) or knead in bread mixer with dough hook 2-3 minutes.
Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.
Cover and let rise in warm place (85º degrees) free from drafts, about 1 hour or until double in bulk.
Punch dough down and divide in half; shape each portion into 8 balls.
Each pan will hold 8 rolls and you use 2 lightly greased round cake pans.
Place balls evenly into cake pans.
Cover and let rise in warm place free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
Bake at 375º F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes 16 rolls.
