There’s nothing like homemade bread or rolls to sop up turkey gravy on Thanksgiving.
1 package yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
½ cup warm water
1 cup milk
½ cup butter
½ cup sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
Mix together yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar and warm water and set aside to rise.
Scald milk and ½ cup butter and cool completely, then add in the sugar, salt and eggs. Mix well and then add in the yeast mixture. Add enough flour to create a very sticky batter. Set aside to rise three to four hours
Once risen, turn half the dough on a floured board or cloth, knead and roll out into a circle. Use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into pie/pizza slices. Roll, beginning at the large end, and place on a greased baking pan. Let rise 2 to 4 hours.
Bake at 325 until golden brown, about 12 to 14 minutes.
