How to Make the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner Rolls

from Pastry Chef Online Jenni Field

The secret to making soft dinner rolls is to use mashed potato in the dough. These rolls also have fruity olive oil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese in the dough. You're going to love them!

Yeast loves potatoes, so your dough will rise easily, and you can have these rolls on the table in about two hours. You can also refrigerate the dough overnight. Make it work for your schedule!

Here is what you'll need to make these dinner rolls.


>Cook potato on stove. Mash. >Combine potatoes with dough ingredients. Mix and knead until shiny and stretchy. >Let rise. Punch down, divide, and shape rolls. Let rise again. >Bake.

You will know your dough is ready to go when it is shiny and very stretchy. Test it by pulling a bit up from the bowl. If it stretches farther than you think it should, you're good to go.

Serve for Thanksgiving dinner or whenever homemade rolls are in order. They're great for sopping up gravy or for sliders. Grab the recipe below, and see the next slide for more dinner roll recipes.
