large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon

2 (1/4-ounce) packages
active dry yeast
5 to 5 1/2 cups

  1. Place milk and 4 tablespoons butter in 2-cup glass measuring cup. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes. Add enough warm water to measure 2 cups.
  2. Combine sugar, egg and salt in bowl; mix well. Add milk mixture; mix well. Stir in yeast; let stand 2 minutes.
  3. Add 3 cups flour. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth and elastic. Add 2 cups flour. Mix dough with hook or stir in with wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour with wooden spoon to make dough easy to handle.

wonderful rolls, use my King Arthur hamburg pans to make them more of a hamburg bun, keeps their shape better, Has anyone tried to make in bread machine on dough setting?

My eight year old grandson & I made these rolls, they were very easy, but most of all they were delicious, hot out of the oven, slathered with soft LandOLakes butter & of course good local honey. Will definitely be making this recipe as a favorite for the holiday... Thanks for sharing...

I made these this afternoon for our church dinner. This is the first time I've worked with a yeast dough, I can't tell you how nervous I was. The buns are so easy to make and everyone said how good they were. The church ladies are already saying that I should make the buns for all the dinners in the future. Thank you for having such a great recipe.

Not overly tasty.

I've made this numerous times and gave the recipe to my mother and brother. Both have loved it. A couple of tips. Do not cover either rising. The dough sticks to everything I've tried. Roll dough out to a little bigger than golf balls and put about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. These rolls are light and fluffy and freeze well....if you have any left!

My daughter's boyfriend was charged with making the rolls for Thanksgiving. (Everyone has to make something, no store-bought.) He doesn't even know how to crack an egg so this recipe allowed for some basic kitchen education and produced rave reviews. Definately better than what "Joy" would have put him through.

Light, fluffy, baked up like a dream. Used these for Thanksgiving dinner! Will be perfect for many other dinners too! You've got to try these!

The rolls were ecellant. Next time, I think I would divide each half into 18 pieces and make smaller dinner rolls. These would be excellant for BBQ or burgers.

Use for sandwiches.......just the perfect size for lunch sandwiches whatever you put inside! They are light and tasty. Mine didn't look as pretty as the picture however.....I'm not a great 'bun' former as they were not uniform in size...any hints?

Oh my gosh these are GREAT and so easy. I always seem to have trouble with yeast breads but not this one! Mine came out more square than round as shown in the picture but no matter - they had a gorgeous golden crust and tasted delicious.

This bun recipe is the best I've ever had! I have been looking for one this good for a very long time! My husband raved about them. Best rolls he's ever had. He even wanted me to make a copy of the recipe for a friend of ours who owns a catering business and raved to him about them as well.

I made these delicious buns for a family meal making them 5 days before, freezing them. An hour before the meal, I took them out of freezer,let them thaw for 20 minutes and baked them as directed...they were fresh and just perfect!
