I'm going to give them the blue ribbon test--I take many at the fair with different recipes, this looks workable. Do you use rapid rise yeast? Dry yeast? Blocks of yeast? I use rapid rise in bulk.

Have you tried to spin the oats in the blender a few seconds for a finer oat consistancy? I do this and top alot of my buns, dinner rolls, loaves with the crushed oats. I even have the whole grain of oats, wheat, rye (berries) to use in this manner.

Is your flour white all purpose?; bread flour>; whole wheat?; Bread flour has a higher gluten factor. I buy the regular and add the gluten to it.

These rolls sound really good. I will be trying this recipe soon, and I think your easy beef stew recipe would be even better with these rolls. Thank you for posting them (and all your other recipes too)
