Yield 32 rolls



  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup warm mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 (0.25oz each) packages (14g) or 4 1/2 teaspoons Platinum Yeast
  • 5 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese


  • 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.
  • Add yeast to warm water and stir together. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pour into a greased bowl, cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough. Turn dough out onto a flat surface, kneading out any air bubbles.

  • 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.
  • While rolls are rising, preheat oven to 375°F
  • Bake rolls for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven to a wire rack. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
