This Homemade Roll recipe is my absolute favorite, not only because it is wonderful to eat straight out of the oven, but because it also freezes amazingly well.
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 Dozen 48
  • 3¾ c. water
  • 5 t. yeast
  • ¾ c. sugar
  • 3 t. salt
  • ⅓ c. oil
  • 8-10 c. flour, sifted
  • 1 cube salted butter
  1. Mix together water, sugar and yeast. Let proof. Add in oil and 4 cups of flour, mix until smooth. Add in salt and just enough of remaining flour until dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl (between 4 and 6 cups). Flour entire surface of dough to prevent sticking, and let rise to double. Punch down and form rolls by pulling off a golf-ball sized piece of dough and turning inside out to form a smooth top and pinching the edges underneath. Place rolls on a greased baking sheet and let rise to double again. Bake at 375°F for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately butter the tops of the rolls.
  2. To Freeze: Cool rolls completely, place desired amount in a freezer safe bag and place in freezer. When ready to use, remove from freezer and let thaw on the counter for 2 hours, or remove from bag, break apart rolls, and microwave until warm.
