These wholesome rolls are a pleasant addition to any entree. I get so many requests for them at holiday time. I make about 100 dozen in December. Retired from the restaurant business, I have 16 grandchildren.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon plus 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups mashed cooked butternut squash
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 10 to 11-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional butter

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and 3/4 teaspoon sugar in warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, squash, salt and remaining sugar; mix until smooth. Add wheat germ and 4 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down and divide into thirds; divide each portion into 20 pieces. Shape into balls.
Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 5 dozen.

"Have made these at least a half dozen times. They are delicious! They make a huge batch that can be frozen and enjoyed at a later date. Totally worth the effort."

"These are delicious! I have made them several times and they are eaten up quickly without fail. I use a little less sugar which doesn't seem to affect the taste at all. My kids love these!"
