Potato Pan Rolls

 Potato Pan Rolls
My family loves these rolls, which is why they're requested often. They don't take long to make because quick-rise yeast is used.
16 ServingsPrep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.


  • 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
  • Additional all-purpose flour


  • In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a
  • small saucepan, heat water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to
  • dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in mashed potatoes and
  • enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
  • 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 16
  • pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place in two greased 8-in. or 9-in.
  • round baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled,
  • about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Sprinkle tops of rolls with additional
  • flour. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to
  • wire racks. Yield: 16 rolls.
