"Growing up in Idaho, I have had my share of potatoes. These amazing butter potato rolls are a favorite of mine and they go perfect with any meal. My favorite is making sandwiches on them after Thanksgiving." - Chef Bryan

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup potato flour or instant mashed potatoes or 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 6 cups all purpose flour
