Oat Dinner Rolls Recipe

These soft rolls are out of this world. The addition of oat makes them a little more hearty than other dinner rolls.—Patricia Rutherford, Winchester, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 2-1/3 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 5 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2. Transfer to a large bowl; let stand until mixture reaches 110°-115°. Stir in yeast. Add 3 cups flour; beat well. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  • 4. Punch dough down; shape into 24 rolls. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
