Mix together in a big bowl:
2 cups Warm Water 4 pkg. Dry Yeast
Then stir in: 2 cups Sugar 2 sticks Melted Butter 4 Eggs
Stir in- one cup at a time: 8 cups Bread Flour
Stir in up to 2 more cups of flour as needed to make a soft dough. When the dough is too difficult to stir, turn dough out on a floured table and knead in the rest of the flour for about 3-5 minutes. Add more flour if needed to keep the dough from sticking to the table. Put the dough back in the bowl and cover it until it has doubled in size (about 1 hour). Punch the dough down and form into 4 equal sized loaves. Pinch off 7 equal pieces of dough from each loaf, roll and place in greased 9-inch round aluminum pans. Let the dough rise again until doubled in size (about 1 hour) and brush with egg wash (1 egg mixed with 2 Tbsp. water). Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes.
