Green Onion Potato Rolls

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.


2 dozen

The mild green onion flavor of these tender rolls appeals to all. I keep the ingredients on hand so I can bake up a batch on a moment's notice.


  • 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1-1/4 cups mashed potato flakes, divided
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 to 6 green onions, sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • All-purpose flour


  1. In a bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, 1 cup potato flakes, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat the milk, butter and onions to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add eggs; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Dip each ball into remaining potato flakes. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
