Oatmeal Rolls

  • Yield 12 servings

There's nothing like freshly baked rolls--perfect for a potluck or family gathering

As a pastor's wife, mother of four kids and school music teacher, I have made these rolls for many pot-lucks. People always ask for the recipe. Hope you enjoy it.


1 cup oats (1/2 cup each quick and old-fashioned)
3 tablespoons soft margarine
2 cups boiling water
2 packages yeast, dissolved in 1/3 cup warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
5 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, pour the boiling water over the oats and margarine. Stir and cool to lukewarm.
  2. Add sugars, salt and dissolved yeast to oatmeal mixture. Knead in the flour, a cup at a time.
  3. Allow dough to rise in a warm place for one hour. Punch down.
  4. Form into rolls and place in greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Allow to rise again for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Bake in a 350F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
