It’s time for this month’s Bread Bakers and our theme for this month is ‘Root Vegetables‘. Our host Karen @ Karen’s Kitchen Stories wanted us to bake with fall vegetables like onion, shallot, carrot, potato, radish etc. I made these Potato Dinner Rolls from King Arthur Flour site.Dinner Rolls with PotatoI have been planning to make potato bread for quite some time now. I have a few recipes bookmarked too, but never got around to make them. So when the theme was announced for this month’s Bread Bakers, I knew right away that I had to make a potato bread.
Dinner Rolls with PotatoSince we are just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving, I thought why not make potato dinner rolls instead of potato bread. Found this recipe for Amish dinner rolls on King Arthur flour website and loved how perfectly soft and fluffy they looked.Dinner Rolls with Potato These dinner rolls have mashed potato mixed right into the dough which gives the rolls a soft texture and they remain soft and fresh tasting at room temperature a few days. So they are great to make ahead for a dinner party. Dinner Rolls with PotatoThese Potato dinner rolls are dense yet still tender, moist and fluffy. My 4 year old ate a couple back to back and I couldn’t stop myself from ‘tasting’ a few myself. I halved the original recipe to make 8 dinner rolls in a 8″ round pan, but you can double the recipe for a party and make 16 rolls in a 9″x13″ baking pan.Dinner Rolls with PotatoCheck out what my fellow Bread Bakers have baked for ‘Root Vegetable Breads’ theme:

  1. Pavani these rolls really came out beautifully and would be perfect for our upcoming holidays. I love using King Arthur Flour recipes too because they are tried and true. Thank you for getting all of our Social Media shares put together once again too!

    1. Sure Kalyani. I think you can make these without the egg replacer. The rolls may not turn out as fluffy, but they’ll still be delicious.
