In a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer fitted with the bread hook, combine sugar and yeast, giving a quick stir to combine. Add warm water and allow to bloom for 10-15 minutes. The mixture should be frothy and fragrant.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish with a cold stick of butter.
Add oil, egg and salt, stir to combine. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing between each addition.
Knead until bread comes together and slaps against the side of the bowl.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured cutting board or work surface. Divide into 12 equally sized balls and place into baking dish. Cover and allow to rise for 10 minutes.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned. When you remove rolls from oven, baste the tops with melted butter. Serve warm.
