potato bread or rolls

potato bread

First of all let me say this is NOT my recipe. I don't like to take credit where credit is not due. I got it on line when I googled potato bread.
Second of all, and certainly more important, it is delicious! I made the bread not the rolls. I will try them when I have more time. This will be the recipe I always use for potato bread. It's that good.
  • potato rolls
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 cup water, lukewarm
  • 1 cup honey or sugar
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes, REAL (leftovers work great!)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • potato bread (FOR BREAD MACHINE)
  • 1/2 cup water, lukewarm
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey (do NOT add honey if planning to use sugar. Honey is listed here because it should be added with liqu)
  • 1 egg, whole
  • 1 egg, separated, use white only
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes, REAL (leftovers work great!)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (do NOT add sugar if using honey)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (or one envelope)


  1. 1
    If making POTATO ROLLS: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 2
    In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Allow the yeast to activate and then mix in sugar or honey.
  3. 3
    Add mashed potatoes, vegetable oil, eggs and salt. Use mixer or bread hooks.
  4. 4
    Add flour one cup at a time stopping at 5 1/2 cups. Slowly add remaining flour until the dough is only slightly sticky to the touch. The dough should be workable but not dry.
  5. 5
    Place in a greased bowl and cover with a towel. Allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, or it can sit overnight at room temperature.
  6. 6
    Punch down and then roll dough out on floured surface to 1/2" thickness.
  7. 7
    Use a canning jar ring to cut rolls - should make 30-36 rolls.
  8. 8
    Place on a greased pan and allow to rise till almost doubled.
  9. 9
    Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

    If desired, slather outside tops with butter while still warm.

    NOTE: Prep time does not include rise times as they will vary.

    If making POTATO BREAD: Place into bread pan in order as listed above OR as per manufacturer's guidelines.
  14. 14
    Set for 1 1/2 lb. bread loaf and start bread machine.

    Walk away until you hear the "ding" of the bread machine - approximately 3 hours later.
