Ingredients:  
1/2 cup sugar
3 3/4 cups hot water
3 packs of dry yeast
(not too hot, it will kill the yeast)
2 whipped eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
7-8 cups flour (divided)
1 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:
Directions:
Combine the sugar and water, stir until sugar is dissolved. Add yeast and cover for about 15 minutes to activate the yeast. While waiting whip your eggs. Add the oil, eggs, and salt, stir. Gradually add four cups of flour, stir. Gradually add 2 more cups of your flour and start kneading. You will use the last cup of flour while you knead your dough. You may need more flour. Just don't use too much, your bread will be dry. Knead until shiny and smooth. Divide into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Let rise slightly above the pan. This could take 30 minutes or so depending on the temperature in your house. Bake at 350 for about 22 minutes. Remove from pans to cool. Rub a stick of butter over the top of the loaves. ENJOY!
