Oatmeal Brown Sugar Rolls

BreadPreparations for Thanksgiving are in full swing here!

Although I’m not hosting – we have 2 different family meals to fit in this weekend.

We’ll be bringing yeast rolls and homemade jam to both.  Angel Girl has the first of 4 batches started now.

While they’re rising – I’ll share this family favorite – a light and fluffy dinner roll made with oatmeal and brown sugar. The oatmeal adds a whole grain without using whole wheat flour. Even people who are skittish about whole wheat rolls will eat these!

The recipe came from my oldest sister – who happens to have excellent taste. 😉

Oatmeal Brown Sugar Rolls

2 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats (I’ve used both old-fashioned and quick cooking)
3 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5-5-1/2 cups flour

Pour boiling water over oatmeal. Cool to lukewarm.

Soften yeast in lukewarm water.

Combine the oatmeal, oil, brown sugar, and salt. Add flour to make a soft dough.

Knead 7-8 minutes.

Put in a greased bow, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double. Punch dough. Let rise again.

Shape into rolls and place on a greased baking sheet. Cover with a clean cloth and let rise till doubled.

Bake about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Makes 3-4 dozen.

Enjoy!
