White Cheddar Potato Dinner Rolls

Yield: 32 rolls
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup warm mashed potatoes
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup warm tap water
  • 2 packages (1½ Tbsp, ½oz, 14g) RED STAR Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
  • 5-6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
  1. Add milk and butter to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in mashed potatoes and honey. Set aside.
  2. Add yeast to warm water and stir together. Set aside.
  3. Add potato mixture into mixer bowl with the dough hook. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until combined. Add eggs, mixing until incorporated. Add yeast mixture and mix together.
  4. Add 2 more cups of flour and salt and continue to mix until dough comes together. Add enough of the remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  5. Pour into a greased bowl, cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
  6. Punch down dough. Turn dough out onto a flat surface, kneading out any air bubbles.

  8. Place in greased baking pans about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, pressing lightly to hold it in place. Cover and let rise until indentation remains after lightly touching roll with finger.
  9. While rolls are rising, preheat oven to 375°F
