Units Scale
  • 1/2 c. warm water, from the tap
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. + 1/3 c. Sugar
  • 1 c. mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 c. whole milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 1/25 c. all-purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp. Butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. honey


  1. You can make the mashed potatoes from scratch or a package. Make sure the mashed potatoes are firm and not too soupy.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the water, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and a packet of active yeast and stir. Let stand for 5 minutes until the mixture is foamy.
  3. Turn the speed on low and add 2 ½ cups of flour, mashed potatoes, unsalted butter, whole milk, salt, lemon juice, eggs, and ⅓ cup of sugar to the yeast mixture. Mix the ingredients on low speed until well combined. Gradually beat in the remaining 2 ½  cups of flour until the dough becomes soft dough.
  4. Turn to a floured surface, and knead until elastic. Sprinkle with additional flour as needed. Spray a large bowl with baking spray and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let rise warmly for 2 hours.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Divide the dough into 24 equal balls rolled smoothly. Cover again and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes. 
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, place the dinner rolls in the oven, and bake until golden brown, for about 25-30 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl, melt the butter and honey in the microwave. Once the rolls are finished baking, brush with the melted butter honey mixture and serve.
