Easy Yeast Rolls

What better to serve with a steaming bowl of chili than a super-simple yeast roll. Here is a yummy, simple recipe from Taste of Home.

Easy Yeast Rolls


2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons salt
6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, egg, oil, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into four portions. Shape each portion into 12 balls. To form knots, roll each ball into an 8-in. rope; tie into a knot. Tuck ends under. Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 4 dozen.
