Bread Machine Crescent Rolls Recipe

Leftover mashed potatoes never last long around our house...I simply turn them into these easy-to-make crescent rolls!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1/2 cup warm 2% milk (70° to 80°)
  • 1/4 cup water (70° to 80°)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup warm mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4-1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • Additional butter, melted


  • 1. In a bread machine, place the first nine ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
  • 2. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Divide in half; roll each portion into a 12-in. circle. Cut each circle into 12 wedges; roll up wedges from the wide end.
  • 3. Place pointed side down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends down to form a crescent shape. Cover and let rise for 20-25 minutes or until doubled.
  • 4. Bake at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush warm rolls with melted butter. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend you do not use a bread machine's time-delay feature for this recipe.
