Oatmeal Rolls {recipe}

Thanks to my good friend Lisa for my new favorite roll recipe.  These just might take over our tradition of making Grandma Jane's Butterhorns on Thanksgiving.  They are so simple and easy to make and super delicious!! 

Oatmeal Rolls
1 C. Oatmeal
2 Tbsp soft margarine
2 C. boiling water
2 pkg. yeast, dissolved in 1/3 C. warm water + 1 tsp sugar
2/3 C. brown sugar
1 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 C. flour

Pour boiling water over oats and margarine. Stir & cool to lukewarm. Add sugars, salt and dissolved yeast to oatmeal mixture. Knead in the flour one C. at a time. Allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hr. Punch down. Form into rolls and place in a greased 9x13 pan. Allow to rise again 20-30 minutes. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

Additions: I stopped with about 4 1/4 C. of flour because the dough seemed right at that point.  When I made them once with whole wheat flour they were really dense.  Lisa said you can add some gluten to help with that.  Also as you can see mine made enough for a 9x13 and a pie pan.  And because you can never have too much butter, I brush warm butter over the tops when they come out of the oven. 


  1. Did you use quick cook oats, steel cut, or old fashioned??? (or does it matter?)
