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.
