Tender Potato Rolls

Tender Potato Rolls

"Filled with wonderful hearty flavor, these rolls are a delicious accompaniment to a meal. If you like, you can shape the dough into loaves like Lisa Owens of Brighton, Tennessee does for her family. 'I once baked 52 loaves and sold slices of the bread at a local fund-raiser,' she details."

  1. Place potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving cooking liquid. Set cooking liquid aside to cool to 110 degrees F-115 degrees F. Mash potato (don't add milk or butter); set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm cooking liquid. Add the honey, oil, salt, egg, 4 cups flour and mashed potato. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 7-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 36 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make these rolls. I proofed the yeast with the warm water and honey for ten minutes, then I added the melted butter (which I used instead of vegetable oil), the eg...

These are the best potato rolls I have ever tasted. They're amazing straight out of the oven!

"These rolls are great, Mom!", were the first words out of my sons' mouth. They were easy too. I did change a few things though. I had no honey, so I substituded approx 1/2 cup white sugar wit...

Wow - yummy! I made it in the breadmaker & then made only 15 big sandwich rolls - delicious with pulled pork. I started with the 4 cups flour as directed - should have just put all 6 in becaus...

Made these for Thanksgiving- fantastic results. I took out what equaled about one mashed potato out of the massive mountain of mashed potatoes I had made ahead of time. Contrary to the recipe, m...

These were so easy to make! The dough rose easily in the fridge... so have it in a large bowl for sure so there is room enough! I'm still amazed. They are so light and delicious. This recipe is ...
