This is my families favorite roll recipe. My dad has been making these rolls since I was little. We would always have them when ever we had company for dinner. Everyone always loved the dinner rolls. I hope you love them too.
1 Cup Instant Mashed Potatoes
1 Tablespoon Instant Active Yeast (I use the Saf Instant Yeast)
1 ½ Cup Hot Water
2/3 Cup Butter plus 1/4 Cup
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 ½ Teaspoons Salt
4-6 Cups of Flour
Make 1 cup of mashed potatoes or instant mashed potatoes. Mix with eggs, yeast and hot water. Add 2/3 cup melted butter, sugar and salt. Mix in 4 cups of flour.
Refrigerate dough for two hours. Knead in the remaining 2 cups of flour after refrigerating.
Roll out dough and lightly butter the a baking sheet. My favorite Jelly Roll Pan!
Fold dough in half and place on the lightly buttered baking sheet.
Rolls are ready to rise.
Cover rolls with a clean towel and allow them to rise until doubled. To speed up rising time you can place them in the oven at the lowest temperature. No more than 170º. Rising time can take about an hour, depending on the warmness of your kitchen.
Bake in oven 350º for 15-20 minutes until tops are golden brown. (Optional) Brush with any additional butter when they come out of the oven.
