Place Red Star Platinum yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Mix melted butter and milk in a small bowl. The mixture should feel warm to the touch, but not burning hot.
Pour over yeast/sugar and stir to combine.
Mix in salt and egg.
Mix in flour a little bit at a time until the dough comes together. If the dough still feels very sticky, you can add a little bit extra flour.
Turn out onto a floured board and knead for five minutes.
Divide dough into 12 pieces.
Roll each piece into a small log, sprinkle the log with poppy seeds, and tie into a knot.
Place knots in a circle around the perimeter of a 9 1/2" oven-safe skillet. Set aside while you make the dip (the rolls need to rest for ten minutes before baking).
