Monday Munchies! Potato Rolls by CraftsbyCarer

Happy Monday everyone!  Today's Monday Munchies is brought to you by CraftsbyCarer!   A recipe for Potato Rolls that has been handed down to her from her great-grandmother...These rolls are the perfect addition to any meal!  Enjoy!

This recipe has been handed down in our family for a long time. 
My Great Grandma used to make them for Holiday dinners and then my mom made them for Thanksgiving every year. 
She said she got tired of doing all the work so she passed the recipe down to me and now I make them for Holiday Dinners and they are so good! 
This year we had extras and used them as burger buns one night and they were so incredibly good with the burger!

  1. I've made bread with mashed potatoes. Yummy.

  2. Oh, boy - all I have to read is "yeast" and I know I'm going to love it. I have a weakness for baked goods with yeast. Must be the German in me ;-) Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Out of most any kind of bread, potato is my favorite! Thanks for sharing!
