First, I’m sorry for not posting in a few days! I’ve had very intense few weeks with school and I had to take a couple of days off.

Good news is that I am done with majority of work, just a couple of paper and exams left! Phew…

Now, I will share these delicious looking dinner rolls with you and then go bake a pie to share with you later.

So who loves Potato Rolls?

I actually haven’t had any in years…yeap, years! I remember my grandmother making potato rolls and they were always so soft, warm and tasty. I remembered about them recently, after I made some mashed potatoes, and couldn’t help but make some.

They turned out SO delicious. Potato dinner rolls are the best freshly homemade. I would definitely make some just in time for a Thanksgiving dinner…

Potato Dinner Rolls
  • 4 - 4½ cups of flour
  • 1 (.75 oz) package of active dry yeast
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • ¼ cup of water
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  1. In a small sauce pot, combine milk, water, butter sugar and salt. Heat through on medium heat, until butter starts to melt (about 120 F).
  2. In a bowl of your electric mixer, combine 2 cups of flour and yeast. Turn the mixer or low and slowly pour in the milk mixture and the beaten egg. Add the mashed potatoes. Keep mixing on low until all combined. Raise the speed to medium high and beat for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Scrape the sides and add the rest of the flour, while the mixer is on low speed and only add ½ cup at a time.
  4. Take out the dough and place it onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, adding a little bit more flour if necessary, until it's elastic and moderately stiff.
  5. Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl and roll it so the dough gets a little greased as well.
  6. Cover it with a towel and keep it in a warm and dry place. Let it rise for an hour (1), until doubled in size.
  7. Punch the dough in the center (it will go down). Take it out and split in two. Cover and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  8. Roll each piece into a long roll and divide each roll into 12 peaces. Roll them into smooth balls and place them onto a lightly greased baking pan, about 2 inches apart. (I used 2 13x9 baking pans.)
  9. Cover and let them raise for about 30 minutes, until doubled in size.
  10. Preheat the oven to 400 and bake the rolls for about 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.
