How to Make Potato Roll Dough
Start by combining warm water, milk, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer and give it a good stir until the sugar melts. Let it rest in a warm place while you’re preparing the rest of the ingredients.
If you’re kneading by hand, you can mix it all in a large bowl instead.
In the meantime, measure out salt, sift flour, and also melt the butter. Set them aside until ready for use.
Now add the egg, salt, melted butter, and mashed potato into the mixer bowl with the yeast mixture. Whisk it all together with a hand whisk.
Next, add half of the flour into the mixture, and mix using the dough hook attachment on low/med speed.
Add about ½ cup thereafter while the dough is mixing. After the flour is mixed in and the dough is not getting stuck to the spatula or sides of the mixer bowl that’s a good indication that your yeast dough is well mixed.
Finally, cover a mixer bowl with plastic wrap, and puncture a few holes with a knife so the dough can breathe. And then place it in a warm place for an hour to proof.
Alternatively, you can mix in the flour and then knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface till you get a soft dough. Once it’s done, place it in a lightly greased bowl and let it proof.
How to Shape the Rolls
After the dough is done proofing, you’ll notice that it has tripled in size. Gently knock the dough down using a silicon spatula or your hand.
Next, grease baking pans with olive oil. Divide dough into 24 to 30 equal sizes. I like to weigh the dough, but this is optional and you can also eye it.
Then, dip your hands in olive oil and take one piece of dough. Fold then roll the dough into a ball and place it onto the greased baking pan.
Repeat the same instructions for the rest of the dough pieces. As I mentioned above, you can make 24 to 30 rolls depending on the size you prefer.
Cover each pan with a cloth and let them proof for about 15 minutes.
