  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons wheat gluten*
  • 1 egg


  • Add the yeast, hot water, oil and sugar to a large bowl and mix.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and gluten. Add to yeast mixture.
  • When dough forms a ball, place on counter and knead for a few minutes until smooth.
  • Divide dough into twelfths and shape into balls. Place on greased cookie sheet, cover with a towel and let rise for 45 or so minutes until double in size.
  • Preheat oven to 375. Bring 6 cups of water and 3 T baking soda to a boil in a shallow pan. In batches boil rolls for 1 minute on each side. Use a slotted spoon to remove them and place them on a well greased cookie sheet.
  • Brush the rolls with beaten egg and sprinkle with salt. Use a sharp serrated knife to lightly slash the top of the rolls. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • * instead of using regular flour and gluten, bread flour may be used.
