Grease a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add all purpose flour, salt, vegetable oil and egg.
In a separate bowl, add warm water (not hot), granulated white sugar and RapidRise yeast and mix until dissolved.
Dump wet ingredients into dry mixing bowl that contains the flour and stir well. I use a wooden spoon to stir and a spatula once its starts to firm. Dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl to create a dough ball in the center of the bowl.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide dough into 5 equal parts, and of those parts into 3 pieces, for a total of 15. Shape dough into a ball and place into prepared pan. Set pan on top of stove.
Turn on oven to preheat to 375 degrees.
Let dough set about 20 minutes to rise. The heat from the preheating oven will help this process. The dough is ready when its about double in size.
Bake rolls for 15-20 minutes or until slightly browning on top.
For additional golden brown that most people come to know with bread, remove rolls from oven and spread melted butter on top of rolls and return to the oven for 1 additional minute.
Remove from oven. Let bread set for a few minutes before cutting apart and serving with jelly, butter and honey.
What is the difference between dry yeast and RapidRise yeast? The only real difference is how it's activated. In regular yeast, you need to make sure it's activated in warm water and in RapidRise yeast, it can go right into the recipe without being put into water first. How long does it take for dough to rise? You want the dough to approx. double in size and basically fill the baking dish up so you do not see as much of the bottom of the dish anymore. This will often depend on the warmth of your home, which is why I go ahead and preheat the oven for this process. To hurry it along, you can also place a clean dish towel over the dish so it essentially traps the heat. In my home, it takes about 20-25 minutes in total to properly rise. Great ways to serveWhile the bread is great on its own, its even better served with homemade butter, honey, or strawberry jelly. What happens if the dough is still too sticky? If your dough seems sticky even after turning it on a lightly floured surface, it's fine to add a bit more flour to it. Just be careful not to over flour the recipe or it will be too dry.
