Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Salt
  • Yeast
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Mashed potatoes- -Yes, mashed potatoes! They give these rolls a soft, creamy texture.

Don’t have any leftover mashed potatoes? You can use a pre made version (look in refrigerator section of your grocery store) or make just 1 cup of mashed potatoes from a single potato. Take 1 large potato and peel it. Then, boil until soft. Mash the soft potato with a bit of butter until desired consistency is reached.

A small note: The recipe card includes directions to mix dough two ways. First, is with your bread machine. The second is with your mixer. Both will work great for these rolls, but, they do have different instructions/rising times.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Rising Time  2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 4 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 6 TBSP butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Instructions

FOR BREAD MACHINE:

  1. Place all ingredients into bread machine, according to manufacture instructions. Select "dough" cycle. Once the cycle is complete, let dough sit in bread machine for an additional 30 minutes.
  2. Gently deflate dough and divide into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place in a 13 x 9 greased baking dish. You may be able to fit just 12 rolls in a 13 x 9 pan, so, if needed, you can use an 8 x 8 baking dish for the additional rolls.
  3. Cover and place in a warm spot to rise until the dough is puffy. This should take about 1-2 hours.
  4. When ready, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. If desired, brush rolls with melted butter before baking.


FOR MIXER:

  1. Mix dough ingredients with dough hook or paddle attachment until a smooth, soft dough is formed.
  2. Cover dough and let it rise in a warm spot until it has doubled in size. This should take about 90 minutes.
  3. Gently deflate dough and divide into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place in a 13 x 9 greased baking dish. You may be able to fit just 12 rolls in a 13 x 9 pan, so, if needed, you can use an 8 x 8 baking dish for the additional rolls.
  4. Cover and place in a warm spot to rise until the dough is puffy. This should take about 1-2 hours.
  5. When ready, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. If desired, brush rolls with melted butter before baking.

  1. I’ve heard of these but have never tried making them. You’ve inspired me!

    1. Thanks Karen! Enjoy 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing on Inspire Me Monday. I am pinning this recipe for later. These look delicious. I can’t wait to try these. I think the smell of freshly baked yeast bread is one of my favorite scents.

  3. Mashed potato? Really? Oh wow! We make bread several times a week but have never tried that! Excited for my next bake now! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday (I couldn’t find your party links?)

    1. Thanks for the party! My party links is right above the recipe card 🙂

  4. How would I go about freezing them? Roll the dough into balls then freeze?

    1. Hi Jana- To be honest, I haven’t froze the dough for these rolls, only once they have been baked. But, if I were freezing the dough, I would let the dough go through the first rise, then, roll into balls. Place into the prepared pan, cover and freeze. However, as mentioned, I’ve never done this before, so, I can’t guarantee how it would work. If you do give it a try, please let me know..it’s a great idea!

  5. How do you modify the recipe if you don’t own a bread machine or mixer with a dough hook/paddle?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Virginia- You could mix the dough by hand or with a regular electric mixer. Enjoy!

      1. Wonderful, mix the dough by hand. I do have a portable electric mixer.
        I will give it a try.
        Thanks for the reply.

  6. Would a cup of instant mashed potatoes work in this recipe?

    1. Hi Nana- As long as they are cooked mashed potatoes, any type should work fine.

  7. What type of flour and butter is used?

    1. Hi Susan- I used regular white flour and unsalted butter.

  8. Susan Stewart says:

    Thank you. I’m going to try these this weekend.
