I love home made bread and rolls. There is nothing better than the smell of bread baking in the oven and then a nice, hot slice of bread, or a roll, fresh out of the oven. A little butter with jam or honey, yum!
These rolls are amazing! One thing that I love about them is that they stay nice and soft. A lot of rolls don't stay as soft the next day, but these do!
2 cups water
1 cup oatmeal
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons yeast
½ cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
Bring water to a boil in a medium sauce pan, stir in oats and butter. Boil 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool to 110 degrees. Sprinkle yeast and sugar over warm water. Combine oatmeal, yeast, flour, salt and brown sugar. Beat until smooth. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and shape into 1 ½ inch balls. Place in greased baking dish. Cover and let rise until double. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until golden.
