Ingredients

Dough:
1 tablespoon instant yeast
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
2 cups warm milk, about 100-110F
1 1/2 cups warm water, about 100-110F
2 teaspoons salt
6 1/2 - 8 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
Water Bath and Extras:
3 quarts water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup baking soda
Coarse salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Combine yeast, oil, milk, and water in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add salt and 2 cups of flour. Gradually add remaining flour until a soft dough forms. Knead for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Transfer dough to lightly greased bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let sit until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 425F. Portion dough into 16 pieces and place on lightly greased parchment or lightly floured counter. Roll each piece of dough into a round ball. Let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Bring water, sugar, and baking soda to a boil.
  5. Pinch the bottom of each dough ball to form a pucker. Place 3-4 dough balls into boiling water at a time, leaving for 30 seconds to 1 minute per side.
  6. Place boiled dough balls onto baking sheet lined with lightly greased parchment or silpat liner. Using sharp knife or razor, slice 2-3 cuts into top of each roll, about 1/4-inch deep. Lightly sprinkle dough balls with coarse salt.
  7. Bake 20-22 minutes, until rolls are deep golden brown.
