I make bread at least once a week, and these are the rolls I bake most often. They are quick and easy to make, delicious, and freeze well.
EASY POTATO YEAST ROLLS
2 packages fast acting yeast
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tblsp. salt
1/2 cup dry potato flakes
- 6-7 cups flour, divided
2-1/4 cups water heated to 130 degrees F
1/3 cup vegetable oil
In large bowl of electric mixer, place yeast, sugar, salt, potato flakes and two cups of flour – mix together to blend. Pour in 130 degree water and oil. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes with regular beater. Insert dough hook and beat 6-1/2 minutes longer, adding flour 1/2 cup at a time, using enough to make dough elastic and no longer sticky. Cover dough and let rise in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
Punch down dough and form into approximately 24 rolls. Place rolls on lightly greased cookie sheets, cover and let rise 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Bake rolls approximately 12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to rack to cool.

I make bread a lot and I have never made rolls. It’s been on my wish list, and now I have no excuse. I even have potato flakes tucked away in the back of the pantry too.
Lillian, is there a trick to forming the roll itself?
That’s brilliant sounding! can I make the dough into one braided loaf, or does it have to be rolls Lillian?
What do you usually eat them with? Filled like sandwiches, or with your dinner?
Questions, questions, sorry *blush* 🙂
i love your recipes,keep the good work up !
Thank you for your nice comment. Lillian
Have you ever tried it without sugar? I was just wondering. I come from a relatively large czech community so I have had many potato breads, usually sweet. But, my grandfather and uncle have diabetes, so any opportunity to skip sugar is good.
No, I haven’t tried this or any other yeast breast without some sort of sweetener. If I can get around to experimenting, I’ll let you know the results. Lillian
Lillian I got this link to work but still can’t get to the lemon pie from Feb 8th post. I definitely am going to make these soon.
Very good recipe! Thank you! I will be making these often.
Thank you so much for letting me know you like them. I made a batch last night to go with our Father’s Day meal that I’m hosting for my son-in-law. Lillian
