Mom's Potato Rolls

Well, it's back to the grind today.  It was such a nice Thanksgiving break!  "We're Thankful for Pie" night, Thanksgiving dinner with my hubby and kiddo's, Black Friday shopping, games, putting up the Christmas tree, naps, staying in pajamas all day long....IT. WAS. GOOD!  I'm sad that it ended so quickly, but it's only 3 more weeks until Christmas break.  Yeah!! 

So with that, I figured I'd let you in on the Wilson family secret recipe for Potato Rolls (my Mom's).  They are sure to put you in the Holiday mood!  They go perfectly with Turkey or Ham...add them to your festivities this year.  The potatoes make for a really soft and delicious dough.  Once you try these all other rolls will be tossed to the curb!

Mom's Potato Rolls
Pin It
1 cup mashed potatoes (make sure there are no lumps)
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups hot milk
1/2 cup oil
7-8 1/2 cups flour

Add the yeast to the lukewarm water and set aside for about 10 minutes.  In the bowl of your mixer add the potatoes, salt, sugar, and oil.  Heat your milk in the microwave until hot, but do not boil.  Add milk to the potato mixture and mix lightly.  Let cool to lukewarm.  Add the beaten eggs and combine.  Add about 4-5 cups flour and beat until smooth.  Add the yeast and the rest of the flour.  Knead dough for about 10 minutes in your mixer.  Dough will be sticky! 

Flour your surface and place dough on it.  Coat the dough with flour so it doesn't stick and roll dough to about 1" thick.  Using a large cup (or any kind of cutter you have) cut out rolls and place them on a greased large cookie sheet.  Dough should be touching each other.

Cover and let rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.  Rub butter over the tops of rolls while still hot.

(These make the best sandwich rolls for leftover turkey and ham!)
