Instructions:

In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
Add sugar and let stand for 2 minutes.
Add salt, oil, eggs and mix well.
Gradually, add flour 2 cups at a time, mixing after each addition. As mixture becomes stiff, use floured hands and begin kneading. Knead for 7-8 minutes.

Divide dough, shape as desired and place in greased pans or on baking sheet. Let rise again until doubled in size (approximately a 1/2 hour).
