3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons yeast
5 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
Heat milk, water, sugar and salt in a saucepan over low heat until warm (about 120 degrees), remove from heat and mix in the eggs and yeast. Place 5 cups of flour in a large lidded bowl. I usually use one of my slow cooker liners because I don’t have a bowl with a lid that’s large enough. Make a well in the center and pour in the warm liquid and yeast mixture. Do not stir.
Cover with the lid and let sit 20-30 minutes. Pour in the melted butter and mix well. Add flour if sticky until a soft but no longer sticky dough is formed. Knead several times. Place back into bowl and cover again with lid. Let the dough sit for another 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Divide dough into 12-16 pieces depending on how large you want your final roll. Shape into balls and place on baking sheet(s) cover with a damp tea towel or a greased piece of plastic wrap and let rise 20-30 minutes. Bake for 15 minutes or until done.
