Cornmeal Yeast Rolls

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 10 min./ batch


3 dozen

These moist rolls have a glossy, golden color and sweet cornmeal flavor. They're great alongside your favorite chili, soup or stew on a cold winter's night.


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-3/4 cups warm skim milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted reduced-fat butter, optional


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, cornmeal, egg substitute, sugar, oil, butter, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Divide into six portions. Divide each into 12 pieces. Shape each into a ball; place two balls in each muffin cup coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Lightly brush with additional melted butter if desired. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
