French Bread Rolls
3 cups water
2 Tbsp yeast
4 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt
8 cups bread flour

Mix water, yeast and sugar; let proof (sit) for 10 minutes. Then add oil, salt and 2 cups of the flour. Stir well. Add remaining flour slowly and then knead into a soft dough. I kneaded in my Bosch for 4 minutes.

Turn out into oiled bowl, cover and let rise for 1 hour. Punch down and divide into 36 rolls. Let rise on slightly greased pans for about 40 minutes. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. If you wish to have a crustier crust, place a pan of water in the bottom of the oven while baking.
