Yummy Oatmeal Rolls

 

I don't think that anything complements a dinner quite like bread: Biscuits, rolls, and homemade bread—it's all delicious! I remember when I was a kid, I would try and eat as many rolls as possible. Often, mom would have to curb my biscuit intake by saying "Um, Charlotte, haven't you already had four rolls?" I would have to say that the bread parts of my meals are often my favorite. If you are sick of having the same types of bread at your meals, then it may be time to change it around a bit. Here is a great recipe for oatmeal rolls that will give your meal that perfect extra touch.

Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of yeast
  • 1/3 cup of warm water
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4-3/4 to 5-1/4 cups of flour

The first thing you need to do when you're making your rolls is to cook the oatmeal. Boil the water and add some salt: then add the oatmeal and let it cook for a bit. After the oatmeal is finished cooking, stir in the brown sugar and the butter. Then set the oatmeal aside for a few minutes. You now need to proof the yeast: Proofing the yeast means to get it ready so it starts rising. To proof it, mix the yeast in with the warm water and the tablespoon of sugar. In a Bosch mixer (or in a KitchenAid), beat the cooled oatmeal mixture with the egg. After that is well mixed, add the proofed yeast, and then you need to add the flour to form a soft dough. Make sure you add enough dough so it's not so sticky, but you also don't want dough that is too dry. Add the flour gradually, so you can monitor the state of the dough.

Once the dough is made, transfer it to a greased bowl. (You can grease the bowl by simply spraying Pam into it.) Cover the bowl with the dough in it and let the dough rise until it is double the size. Once the dough is double in size, punch it down and let it rest for ten more minutes. Shape the dough into small balls and place the balls in round cake pans that are greased. Cover the round cake pans and let the dough rise until it is doubled again. Bake the rolls in the oven at 350 degrees for about twenty to twenty-five minutes or until the rolls are golden brown on top. Once they are done baking, remove the rolls from the pans to cool on wire racks. When the rolls are still hot, brush the tops of them with butter. You can serve the rolls in the round.

Now you that you know how to make oatmeal rolls, your traditional meals will be even better. It's always good to spice things up a bit by changing around what you serve. Most meals do come with some sort of bread, but it's always a fun surprise when you change up the bread recipes a bit! Enjoy!
