Delicious Recipe for Homemade Yeast Rolls

Updated on May 24, 2012

Ever since I was a kid I have loved those wonderful yeast rolls. I prefer them hot and steamy, fresh from the oven, but I like them the next day too.

When I was a child and was at a buffet type place or steak house that had those big hot rolls they were the first things I wanted. I loved the way the smelled and tasted. Even today, one of my favorite things at a place like Golden Corral are the yeast rolls. You have to be careful not to eat too many of them or you might not have room for the steak!

Here is a recipe that was shared with me by my sister actually. Thanks "sis" for killer recipe!

Ingredients to Make Homemade Yeast Rolls:

  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup shortening, or butter
  • 2 cups water

Preparation Instructions:

Combine the yeast, 1 tsp sugar, salt, 1/2 cup water and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients with a mixer on low speed for 2 minutes and set the bowl aside.

In another bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups of water and shortening or butter, which ever you prefer. Mix this mixture for 3 minutes on medium speed with a mixer. Once the flour mixture is done, mix the yeast mixture into the bowl and mix for 3 more minutes on medium speed.

Cover the bowl and place it in a warm area, around 85 degrees for about 3 hours to let the dough rise. The dough will be about double in size when it has properly risen. Punch the dough a few times to release air and place in the refrigerator overnight.

Flour your hands and shape the dough into balls approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter, or to the size you prefer and place on a greased, floured pan.

Place the pan in a warm area to allow the dough to rise a second time, around 2 hours or until the rolls have doubled in size.

Bake the rolls in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

If you'd like to make the dough ahead of time, it can be stored in an air tight container or bag in the refrigerator for as long as 4 days.
