Directions

  1. Pour the boiling water over the instant mashed potatoes and set aside. Scald the milk with the oil and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Add The 1/2 cup very warm water and the teaspoon sugar to the yeast and set aside.
  2. Add the potatoes to the milk mixture. Start adding the flour, then eggs, one at a time, beating with a mixer or dough hooks. Add yeast mixture and all but 1 cup of the remaining flour and salt.
  3. Use the reserved 1 cup of flour for kneading. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes on a floured board. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, being sure to grease top of dough also. Cover dough with plastic wrap then with a double piece of foil. Refrigerate or let rise once and make into rolls. If made at night knead down dough before going to bed.
  4. Once dough has risen once, punch down and shape into about 3 1/2 dozen rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased baking dish and bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.

This recipe is great except it's missing one important step: Let the rolls rise again on the baking sheet before you bake them. I made a sheet of rolls and some "bubble bread" because it makes a lot of dough. Both were great.

This dough resembled the kind I used to make at a restaurant. I think they would have turned out better had I prepared them like we did there. Next time I'll form the dough into roll sized pieces and place on a greased baking sheet in a warm moist oven. I will also add a little more sugar and salt next time. Acutally, I can't wait to make them again!!!

Very good recipe. I recieve compliments each time I make these rolls. I made a few adjustments.I add a tad more sugar and salt because my family said they were a lit bland the first time I tried them.
