School Cafeteria Rolls

3 packages yeast 2 cups warm water 1/2 cup sugar 1-1/2 sticks melted butter (3/4 cup) 7 cups flour 1/2 cup dry milk 1-1/2 teaspoons salt Put yeast & water in mixing bowl and add sugar. Let sit until dissolved (about 10 minutes), then add melted butter Add flour, dry milk and salt. Beat well Shape into rolls, place on greased sheet & let rise until double in bulk Bake about 15 minutes at 425 degrees Recipe Note: This is an old cafeteria recipe that is so easy to make if you have a heavy duty mixer. It only requires one rising and it's impossible to mess these up. If you don't have a heavy duty mixer, only add part of the flour so you can mix them well and then knead the remainder of flour in.

1977 recipe
here is another thread over on Pizza concerning School Pizza memories, some good, some bad. I was lucky enough to grow up in NW Iowa in a town called Sioux Rapids. The population at that time was around 700, probably less than that these days. Our School was a K-12 single building school with a total of about 400 students.    We actually had a lunch room worth eating in, the food was nearly always homemade and nutritious, one of the favorite items being Pizza. I remember sitting in grade school, shortly before lunch, smelling the intoxicating aroma wafting up from the lunch room, watching the clock as it inched along. Finally, lunch time!!    A couple years ago, I was up in SR and ran into Peggy Hurless, one of the long-time cooks at the old school. I asked her for the recipe for the pizza, and she was nice enough to give it to me.    It was a simple recipe, and if it tasted as good as I remember then I was to be a happy man.  I made the dough covered it and put it aside to let it rise.    In the meantime, I browned the hamburger, but deviated from the recipe a bit by adding chopped onion. I just can not brown ground beef without onions and black pepper. It just does not seem right.    When it was all browned up, I added the remaining ingredients and set it aside.    The dough had risen so I rolled it out, put it on the baking sheet, and again, deviated from the recipe by baking the crust a bit by itself first.    On went the "Sloppy Joe" mix and the cheddar cheese, then popped it in the oven.    Mixed up an easy salad while the pizza baked.....    Out came the pizza and the rest is...history!        I had my brother over to be the official taste tester. He gave it two thumbs up, saying that it was as good as he remembers!
