Main Dish, Snacks & Appetizers,

Soft whole-wheat potato rolls make simple sandwiches extra special. Or make half-size for dinner rolls.

  • Prep Time

  • Cook Time

  • 8



  • 1-3/4 cups water, hot
  • 1-1/3 cups Idaho® Spuds™ Classic Potato Flakes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup dry milk powder
  • 1 package (1/4 oz.) active-dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg


  1. Combine water and Idaho® Spuds™ Potatoes in a medium bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Mix flours, dry milk powder, yeast and salt in a large bowl of a stand mixer or a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir butter, honey and egg into potatoes. Add to dry mixture and beat with paddle or hook attachment to make a smooth and elastic dough, about 5 minutes. (Or, beat well with a spoon and knead on a floured surface until smooth.)
  4. Gather dough into a ball and knead 3-4 times on a floured surface. Cut into 8 equal pieces and shape into balls. (Or cut 16 pieces to make dinner rolls.) Place at least 1 inch apart on two lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheets. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until double in size, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Heat oven to 350°F.
  6. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes or until rolls sound hollow when lightly tapped. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter if desired. Cool completely before serving, about 30 minutes.
