Potato Rolls

I will admit that I haven’t been much of a bread maker in the past but I have never given up on the idea that maybe I just haven’t found the right recipe.  I have a friend who has passed along her recipe to me and drum roll please…….Potato Rolls!  My husband and I tried it today for the first time and fell in love with them.  I was worried that the rolls would taste more like biscuits and I was very wrong.  They are also very good for freezing so you can get out what you need for dinner.  This is a must-try bread roll.


  • 3 envelopes yeast
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/3 cups butter, melted
  • 2 cups instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • All-purpose flour (about 7 cups)

Dissolve yeast in lukewarm milk and water.  Add melted butter and potato flakes.  Add sugar, salt and beaten eggs; stir in enough flour to make dough soft.  Continue stirring in flour until dough is fairly stiff.

Turn onto lightly floured surface;  knead until the dough feels like elastic and is smooth.

Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning to grease dough.  I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Place in a warm area and let rise until it’s doubled in size.

I cut the dough in half and rolled out long rolls of dough on a lightly floured surface and sliced off my rolls.

You can use a pizza cutter to slice the rolls.  Bake rolls at 350 F for 10 to 15 minutes.  If you want to make a bread loaf, then bake at 375 F for 35 to 40 minutes.

Here is the end result………And definitely a family favorite.
