Mashed Potato Rolls Recipe

Potatoes are synonymous with our state. My grandmother always made these rolls, which everyone loved. Because it makes such a large batch, this recipe is great for company.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-3/4 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • Melted butter, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, butter, oil, sugar, egg and mashed potatoes; mix well. Stir in the salt, baking powder, baking soda and enough flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Cover one piece. Shape the other piece into 16 balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Repeat with the remaining dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter if desired. Yield: 32 rolls.
