  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil; add oats and butter. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; cool to lukewarm. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oat mixture, sugars, salt and 4 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; allow to rest for 10 minutes. Shape into 18 balls. Place in two greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire racks.

What a great recipe, easy to make and they come out soft and fluffy. I did add 1/2C more flour to recipe, as I live in a high altitude area. My family really enjoyed them. Thanks!!

Excellent, soft, dinner roll. The oatmeal gives it extra flavor and a little extra texture. The dough is very soft as well as the roll. A sure hit with my son who was home visiting for the week.

I thought these were pretty good. They turned out nice and soft, and as another reviewer mentioned, they have more texture than regular rolls. Good for sandwiches. I did find the dough a bit tou...
