“I have been eating these rolls since I was a kid. I don't know where they started out, but I remember my grandmother making them. They freeze well and taste great split open and toasted.”

Original recipe yields 2 dozen rolls

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.
  2. Mix milk, mashed potatoes, shortening, sugar, and salt together in a bowl; add yeast mixture and egg. Stir 2 cups flour into the milk mixture until incorporated. Stir in remaining 2 cups flour to make a soft dough.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 7 minutes. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to coat all sides of dough with oil. Cover bowl and put in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down and shape into a ball. Cover the bowl and let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Grease 2 baking sheets.
  6. Shape dough into 24 rolls and place onto prepared baking sheets; let rise for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  8. Bake rolls in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

I made these to take to a Christmas dinner we were invited to. I love potato rolls and these didn't disappoint. They were easy to make and were very soft, fluffy & moist. I recommend oiling your fingers when you start to shape the rolls, as the dough can be a bit sticky. I did use butter in place of the shortening. I put them into cake pans--a dozen in one pan, and a bakers dozen in the other pan. Everyone raved about the rolls, so this one is a keeper!

These make very nice rolls - rave reviews at the party I took them too. Half of them I rolled into balls and put in a 9-inch round pan. The other half I rolled out, cut into circles and then folded in half (these made for great sandwich rolls!). I followed the recipe except that I substituted some of the white flour with whole wheat flour.
