Sunday Dinner Rolls

Recipe by nascarmom
READY IN: 1hr 10mins


  • 1
    (1/4 ounce) package yeast (I usually use a generous tablespoon of yeast)
  • 14
  • 12
    cup sugar (don't expect the yeast to rise like normal yeast rolls)
  • 2
    large eggs
  • 12
    cup oil
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 4
    cups flour


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water and 1/2 cup sugar.
  • This will not rise like normal yeast recipes because of all the sugar.
  • In a large bowl beat eggs, warm water, oil and salt.
  • Add yeast mixture.
  • Gradually add 4 cups flour to liquid mixture (dough will be very sticky).
  • Let rise to twice it's size.
  • Not necessary to knead the dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let stand overnight.
  • In the morning:
  • Divide dough into 3 parts.
  • Be sure to generously flour board or wax paper and rolling pin.
  • (If you need to add a little more flour to dough in order to work, it's okay).
  • (just enough flour though to where it doesn't stick to your hands).
  • Roll out like a pizza and cut into 12 or 16 pie slices.
  • Roll each slice from large to small end.
  • Place on greased pan and allow room to rise.
  • Let stand until you get home from church or until twice the size.
  • Pop into a 375°F oven for 8-10 min or until lightly browned.
