Golden Brown Potato Rolls
I honestly think one of the most hearty, comforting foods you can eat is bread, especially my mother’s homemade Potato Rolls. So, you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when her Potato Roll recipe ended up in my inbox yesterday. Thanks Mom!
These freshly baked rolls not only taste great, they smell incredible. There really is nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread, right? The potato in these rolls not only adds moistness, but also gives the roll a really fine texture – not so much squishy, but rather “pillowy”.
Makes about 12 rolls
What You’ll Need:
3 cups flour
2 or 3 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp dry yeast
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup cooked potato
1 large egg
3/4 cup warm water
1.) I use a bread machine on the dough cycle. All the wet ingredients go in, dry ingredients on top. You could adapt this for a mixer with a dough hook as well.
2.) When the dough cycle is finished, form the dough into 12 or so rolls.
3.) Put them on a greased baking sheet. Let them rise until doubled in size.
4.) Preheat your over to 375 degrees F. I brushed these with melted butter and fresh rosemary. You could also brush them with honey and melted butter or leave them plain.
5.) Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
