Potato Refrigerator Rolls


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes (made with fat-free milk)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 4 teaspoons fat-free milk
  • 4 teaspoons toasted wheat germ


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the mashed potatoes, butter, sugar, molasses, egg, salt and whole wheat flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose 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 refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • 3. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 18 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on prepared baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 4. Brush rolls with milk; sprinkle with wheat germ. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
