"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
In the bowl and an electric mixer, combine yeast, water, milk and sugar
Stir to dissolve and let sit for about 5 minutes
Add vegetable oil, salt and about 2 cups of flour
Using the dough hook, mix at medium speed until the dough comes together
Add the remaining flour a little at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 4 minutes (or let the mixer do it)
Place in a lightly greased bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise for 1 hour.
Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 6 equal portions
Shape each into a ball and place on a parchment lined baking sheet
Let rise while you prepare the topping
Combine all topping ingredients in a bowl and mix very well. Let stand for 15 minutes
Once the rolls have risen a bit, and the topping is ready, spread a generous layer on each roll, trying to use all the topping in a thick coat on the top and sides of the ball
Start preheating your oven to 375 F
Let the dough balls rise for another 20 minutes
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until well browned. Let cool completely before eating.

These rolls are soooo good. We made them when the Samoan family came to visit in Fortuna. We had to triple the recipe :) They only keep a couple of days, but that's not usually an issue.
