Another super easy bread recipe

This is one that was given to my by my sister in law. I like it because you only let it rise one time and it goes together really quickly. For those of you who like the smell of fresh bread or love the taste of home made rolls without a lot of time, this is the perfect recipe. I've put rolls on the table from start to finish within 45 minutes (depending on how hot my wood stove is to rise rolls next to...)

Divine Dinner Rolls (also makes really good Cinnamon Rolls)

3 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1 T salt (yes, that really is how much you need)
1/2 c. oil

1 c. warm water
3 T yeast
1 t. sugar

1 c. warm water
3 c. flour
1/2 c. warm water
3 c. flour

Combine the yeast, water and sugar in a small bowl - let soften for 5 minutes. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oil, salt and sugar. Blend well. Add the yeast mixture and stir. Add the second cup of water and the first three cups of flour (I have added this as two cups whole wheat flour and one cup of white flour for wheat rolls), blend well. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of water and the remaining flour. Mix again. Dough will be sticky. Let rise until doubled and then knead on the counter - I always add an additional cup (at least) of flour. Roll out immediately and shape into the rolls that you want. If you let this rise again, expect miniature bread loaves instead of rolls with you dinner. Bake at 350 for approximately 15-18 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
