– 1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter

– 2 teaspoons of sugar

– 1 cup of mashed potatoes, made from about 2 medium-sized potatoes.

– 1/2 cup of milk that has been heated to a warm temperature

– 2.25 tablespoons of active dry yeast (equivalent to 1 package)

The recipe calls for 4 cups of all-purpose flour.

– 1 tsp salt

– 1 ample-sized egg, whisked (for egg wash)


1. Initiate the Yeast: Combine the heated milk, melted butter, sugar, and yeast in a spacious mixing basin, using a whisk. Allow the mixture to rest for a duration of 5 to 10 minutes until it develops a frothy texture, which serves as an indication that the yeast is actively functioning.

2. Integrate the Potatoes: Blend the mashed potatoes into the yeast mixture until well included.

3. Combine Dry Ingredients: Slowly include the flour and salt, stirring constantly until a dough starts to come together.

4. Manipulate the dough: Place the dough on a surface covered with flour and manipulate it by pressing, folding, and stretching it for a duration of 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and flexible.

5. Initial Fermentation: Transfer the dough to a bowl that has been coated with oil, then cover it with either plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Allow the dough to ferment in a warm location for a duration of 1-2 hours, or until it has increased in volume by twofold.

6. Form the Rolls: Once the dough has risen for the first time, deflate it by punching it down and then divide it into pieces of the same size. Form each piece into a spherical shape and place them on a baking pan that has been coated with oil, being sure to leave some space between each piece.

7. Second Proofing: Place a cover over the pan and let the rolls undergo a second rise for a further 30-45 minutes, or until they have doubled in size.

8. Preheat the Oven: Adjust the temperature of your oven to 375°F (190°C) in order to preheat it.

9. Apply Egg Wash: Delicately coat the surfaces of the rolls with the beaten egg wash to get a lustrous golden appearance.

Bake and Enjoy: After preheating the oven, cook the rolls until they get a golden brown color and a fluffy texture. Present these exquisite, handcrafted potato dinner rolls while they are still warm, and see how they swiftly vanish from the dining table!

This recipe is a pleasant variation of traditional dinner rolls by combining the familiar flavor of mashed potatoes. The result is a light and delicious bread that is suitable for any meal. Indulge in the art of creating delicious rolls that are certain to become a beloved staple in your own culinary space.
