Ingredients:  
2/3 Cups White Sugar
2 Tbsp White Sugar
3 Eggs
2 Tbsp Yeast or 2 yeast packets
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup butter
5-7 cups White Flour
2 Cups Milk

Directions:
Directions:
Mix the yeast, 2 tbsp sugar and the warm water in a 2 cup glass measuring cup or small bowl, and set aide to proof (not only starts the yeast working, but you will know you water a not too hot or your yeast dead, as well)
In a warm saucepan, heat the milk and the butter. Do not let boil--you just want it warm.
Beat the 3 eggs, 2/3 cup sugar, and the salt together with a mixer set on medium for about 2 minutes. Add the milk/butter mixture and stir. (make sure this is not too hot, or else you will end up cooking the eggs)
Add the yeast mixture and stir. Attach the dough hook on your mixer, and slowly add the flour and mix until a stiff dough forms. The dough will pull away from the side of the bowl. You may or may not need all the flour. Sometimes it takes more, sometimes less. If mixing by hand, add flour until a stiff sticky dough forms. Empty bowl onto a floured work surface and work/knead in flour until a smooth dough forms.
Grease whatever pan you will be baking in, be it a loaf pan or 13x9 cake pan. Form your dough into either 2 loaves or a bunch of rolls (depends on how big you make them) and set aside in a warm, draft-free place to rise. cover with a damp dish towel for more draft protection.
When the rolls/bread have doubled in size, bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until tops are brown. Bread is done when you thump the top with a knuckle and it sounds hollow.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I love making bread rolls. I have several go to recipes and this is a good one. The one thing that I love doing is taking butter and garlic and melting it together and drizzle over the top of the rolls before baking.
