Soft Potato RollsMake on Drop
Never one to throw anything away, related to food that I could possibly use in another way, this is how these potato rolls started. I had a couple of baked potatoes looking at me from the bench for a day….and I knew there had to be an answer…admittedly I had heard of potato bread before and in fact I think there is a way to use potatoes as yeast, but that is another day and another recipe!
Interestingly, the potato starches attract and hold more water than wheat starches and helps to increase the moisture content in baked goods. Potato flour, and ergo, potato itself, when combined with whole wheat, bread, or bakers flour, makes yeast dough easier to shape and handle.
I used the multi loaf tin, cos they looked so darn cute…but you can hand form the dough into any shape you want. Brush with a little melted butter when they come out and voila, great for a dinner party, nice as a sandwich, toasted…you know the drill!
