Yeast Dinner Rolls Recipe

Ever since I was a child, fresh-from-the-oven yeast breads and rolls have been my absolute favorite. These melt in your month.—Earlene McEvers, Herrin, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:32 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 8 to 8-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in a warm water. Add milk, eggs, sugar, butter, salt and 4 cups flour until smooth. Add 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 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down; divide into four portions. Shape each into eight rolls; place 20 rolls in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Place 12 rolls in a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20-30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter if desired. Serve warm. Yield: 32 rolls.
