Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

My family loves to eat homemade bread & I love to make bread. These dinner rolls made with oatmeal are my family's favorite and everyone who I make them for loves them. I serve them for everyday meals, holidays, potlucks, and I even served them at my son's wedding. I also make them into bread bowls and they are great with cheesy potatoe soup or beef stew.

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls or Bread Bowls

2 cups water
1 cup oatmeal
3 Tablespoons butter
1 package of yeast
1/3 cup warm water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 3/4 – 5 1/4 cups flour

~Bring water to boil add oatmeal and butter. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool  to lukewarm.
~In mixing bowl dissolve yeast in warm water and add the oatmeal, sugar, honey, salt and 4 cups of flour and beat until smooth. Add enough flour to form soft dough.
~Knead 6-8 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until double in size about 1 hour.
~Punch down dough and let rest 10 minutes.

For Dinner Rolls:
~Divide dough into 18 pieces and shape into balls. Let rise for 45 minutes.
~Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

For Bread Bowls:
~Make 9 balls the size of a large gumball. Divide the remaining dough into 9 large balls. Place the small ball on top of the large ball using a dab of water to adhere them.
~Let dough rise about 45 minutes.
~Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
~Using a serrated knife cut downward into the roll (kinda like a pumpkin) to make a lid. Scoop out the middle of the roll and fill with soup. To serve place lid on bread bowl.

Those look yummy and when I showed HubbaHubba, he decided I absolutely must make them as bread bowls. Guess I know what I'm putting on the menu next week. What soup do you like best in those?
