Oatmeal gives these rolls a lovely texture, while the sourdough adds a distinct flavor.
Very nice! If you have an active starter, you do not need the yeast, just plan on a longer rising time. Also leave out the soda for a more pronounced sourdough taste. To use rolled oats, soak them in the warm water for 15 minutes before continuing with the rest of the recipe. I made them by hand. Beautiful! Yummy! The changes I made: Rolled oats, No yeast, No soda, EVOO instead of margerine (used only 1/4 cup) - 09 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family and I really liked this recipe. I made half of it into rolls, and the rest into a loaf of bread. Making 12 rolls out of half of the dough made very small rolls. I would make larger rolls in future. The loaf was wonderful. Tasty and healthful. Mine had a dark but not too crisp crust, the inside was a nice even and soft texture. This will be my standard bread from now on. - 13 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm so glad I found this recipe--the rolls are amazing. I used rolled oats that add a nice crunch to the crust, and I used all honey and butter. The sweetness and the slight tang of sourdough and the texture--wow, they are outstanding! - 18 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
