1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup mashed potatoes (about 2 medium potatoes)

1/2 cup warm milk

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 large egg, beaten (for egg wash)



Activate Yeast: In a large mixing bowl, combine warm milk, melted butter, sugar, and yeast. Allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast activates and becomes foamy.


Incorporate Potatoes: Add mashed potatoes to the yeast mixture and mix thoroughly.


Combine Flour and Salt: Gradually add flour and salt to the mixture, stirring until a dough forms.


Knead Dough: Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.


First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.


Shape Rolls: Punch down the dough and divide it into equal-sized portions. Shape each portion into a ball and place them in a greased baking pan, leaving some space between each roll.


Second Rise: Cover the rolls and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes, or until doubled in size.


Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).


Brush with Egg Wash: Brush the tops of the rolls with beaten egg wash.
