  • 2 Cups milk , warmed
  • 4 ½ teaspoons yeast (2 packages)
  • cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups old fashioned oats not quick cooking or 1 minute oats
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ½ - 6 Cups flour


  • 2 Tablespoon butter melted


  • Add milk, sugar, yeast and oats to a large mixing bowl. Stir and let rest for 10 minutes until bubbly.
  • Add 2 cups flour, butter, salt, eggs. Mix.
  • Continue adding flour, 1 cup at a time. You might not need to add all the flour.
  • Knead dough for 5 minutes by stand mixer, or 10 minutes by hand.
  • Place in a lightly sprayed bowl, cover and let rise until doubled.
  • Lightly punch down and divide dough into quarters. Take each quarter and divide into6equal sized pieces for a total of 24 rolls. Shape each piece by cupping your hand over the dough and rotating in a circular motion.  Place rolls on a lightly sprayed baking sheet. If you want soft sides, place rolls next together. If you want a round roll browned all over, space your rolls apart.
  • Cover and let rise, about 30-45 minutes.
  • Just before baking, brush tops lightly with melted butter.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
  • Brush with melted butter when they come out of the oven.
  • Transfer rolls to a cooling rack.
