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)
1If making POTATO ROLLS: Preheat oven to 350°F.
2In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Allow the yeast to activate and then mix in sugar or honey.
3Add mashed potatoes, vegetable oil, eggs and salt. Use mixer or bread hooks.
4Add 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.
5Place 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.
6Punch down and then roll dough out on floured surface to 1/2" thickness.
7Use a canning jar ring to cut rolls - should make 30-36 rolls.
8Place on a greased pan and allow to rise till almost doubled.
9Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
10If desired, slather outside tops with butter while still warm.
12NOTE: Prep time does not include rise times as they will vary.
13If making POTATO BREAD: Place into bread pan in order as listed above OR as per manufacturer's guidelines.
14Set for 1 1/2 lb. bread loaf and start bread machine.
15Walk away until you hear the "ding" of the bread machine - approximately 3 hours later.
16Remove from pan and slather outside of the loaf with butter while still warm from machine.
