“Homemade Potato Rolls is a soft dinner rolls which has addition of mashed potatoes in it. Mashed potatoes add so much softness to the rolls.”
Potato bread is a form of bread in which potato flour or potato replaces a portion of the regular wheat flour. It is cooked in a variety of ways, including baking it on a hot griddle or pan, or in an oven. It may be leavened or unleavened, and may have a variety of other ingredients baked into it.
Addition of potato in this recipe made it super soft and fluffy. The bread itself is light and soft. This taste delicious with some soups.
After I discovered this recipe, it became a mainstay for me. I make the dough ahead of time when company is coming, and I try to keep some in the refrigerator to bake later. Leftover mashed potatoes are almost sure to go into these rolls.
Instead of fresh potatoes you can use instant mashed potato powder.

The rising will take about an hour on the counter. You can speed up the rising process by:

- Set the pan on the oven while it’s preheating.
- Place the pan on a rack set over a large roasting pan full of boiling water.
Those three will shorten your rising time up to about half.

Some Frequently Asked Questions.
Why are my rolls hard?
Here are some of the reasons rolls can come out hard and flat. if your yeast is not activated, then dough wont rise and the bread will be hard. Over baking can make your rolls hard. Also not letting the dough rise enough also makes it hard.
Can you over knead dough?
If you think you‘ve over-kneaded the dough, try letting it rise a little longer before shaping it.
What happens if I don’t knead my dough enough?
If you don’t knead your dough enough by hand or if you don’t allow it enough time in your mixer, the dough will lack strength. Once baked, an under-kneaded bread loaf will be flat and dense in texture
Why is my bread rolls so heavy and dense?
you did not knead it or leave it to prove for long enough or you could have killed the yeast by leaving the dough to rise in a place that was too hot.
Can you let bread rolls rise too long?
Letting the dough rise for too long makes the structure of the bread weak, so it can‘t support itself.
What can I eat with potato rolls?
You can serve it with just soups. You can even serve it with sabzi, kheema, bhurji, omelette or any curries to soak the rolls in.
