Sweet Italian Stuffed Dinner Rolls

Super Easy Sweet Italian Dinner Rolls
(so good you'll never make anything else!)
Makes over 3 dozen small rolls

*All measurements are approximate. I don't measure hardly at all- I just dump.*
* I use my Kitchen Aid but mixing in a Bosch or by hand would work too.*

2 cups HOT water
2 tsp or so of yeast
3/4 to 1 cup sugar

3 cups flour
1/2 to 1 cup of Olive Oil
1 tsp or so or salt
1 TBS dried parsley (I like using a lot more than this but start at about this much)

Mix well then add 3 more cups of flour. Add it slowly so that when it reaches the consistency you want it to you can stop adding. 

For stuffed rolls(soooo good!!) - flatten out about a TBS of dough in your hand then put a small cube of mozzarella cheese in the center and wrap the dough around it and roll it like a regular roll.

For non-stuffed rolls just take about a TBS of dough and roll it around into a ball shape

I like to make them pretty small so I can get more out of a batch. One batch makes anywhere from 2 to 3 full 9x13 pans full when I make them small.

Place in greased pans. Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes, (more if they are bigger)

Meanwhile, mix:
1/4 cup or so Olive Oil
5/6 cloves crushed garlic(I like garlic. a. lot. so I use a lot. You might not want as much is what I'm getting at)
1/2 tsp salt

Brush on rolls after 15 minutes. Bake 5 more minutes. Remove from oven. Brush the remaining oil over them then cover so they stay soft.

Then try not to eat them all  :)
