- 2 packs rapid rise yeast
- 2 T sugar
- 2 1/2 c warm water
- 1 T salt
- 1 T margarine
- 6 1/2 – 7 c flour
Stir yeast, sugar and water together and let stand for 5 minutes. Add salt, margarine and flour. Stir well. Knead until smooth. Place in greased bowl, turn over, let rise in a warm place until doubled (~40 minutes).
Turn dough out onto a floured surface, knead lightly. Shape into 24 ovals or 2 long loaves (15 inches). Place on a well greased baking sheet, make shallow cuts in the top of bread/rolls. Cover, let rise until doubled (~30 minutes).
Bake @ 400 degrees for 15 minutes, brush with egg white wash (2 egg whites, 2 T water). Bake 5 more minutes until golden, cool on racks.
Be sure to add as much flour as possible to get a good height to your bread or rolls.
