These potato rolls have mashed potatoes added right into the dough to make them extra soft and fluffy. They’re the most delicious rolls and your family will love them with any dinner you serve them with!
There isn’t much better than a warm roll, spread with butter and honey or jam. But these potato rolls take it to the next level.
These potato rolls have actual mashed potatoes in the dough itself, which makes them extra soft and fluffy, and extra delicious!
They’re perfect served with dinner, for breakfast or just as a quick snack. I mean, who can resist a hot roll straight out of the oven?
And these rolls aren’t even difficult to make, the recipe is very similar to any dinner roll recipe except with the mashed potatoes added right into the dough! (Make sure your mashed potatoes aren’t seasoned with garlic or herbs – only mixed with a little butter and milk to make them creamy)
You probably already have your Thanksgiving dinner planned out, but might I request that you add these babies to the menu? They’re so soft and fluffy and I just know you’ll love them as much as we do!
The only problem is you might have to make two or three batches, because you’ll be surprised at how quickly these rolls disappear. You’ll all just want to eat one after another, whether you cover them in butter or dip them in a side of gravy! You and your family will love these rolls with any dinner you serve them with.
