  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup milk (warmed)
  • 1 package instant yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 4 cups bread flour


  • Pour the warm water and milk (about 110-115 degrees F) into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Sprinkle the yeast over the liquids.
  • Add the sugar, egg, salt, potatoes, butter and flour.
  • Use the paddle attachment to mix the ingredients just until combined.
  • Then switch to the dough hook and beat on medium-high speed for 5-7 minutes. The dough should be slightly sticky.
  • Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place the kneaded dough ball into the greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel.
  • Set the bowl in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size (about 30 minutes).
  • Divide the dough in 12 dough balls (or 15 for smaller rolls).
  • Place the dough balls into a greased 9x13 pan.
  • Cover the pan and put it in a warm place, allowing the dough to rise again until almost double (about 25 minutes).
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake the rolls (uncovered) for 17-20 minutes or until the tops are dry and firm, with a golden brown color.
  • Allow the pan to cool on a wire rack.
  • Once the rolls are completely cool, store in an airtight container.
