The BEST Homemade Potato Dinner Rolls


Looking for an easy way to spruce up any dinner? These Homemade Potato Dinner Rolls are fluffy and soft on the inside with a crisp top brushed with honey for a little sweeteness that just melts in your mouth. And they're very easy to make, which is always a win my my book! 

What to serve with potato dinner rolls?

These homemade dinner rolls can spruce up any lunch or dinner meal, but a few ideas to serve alongside the dinner rolls themselves are...

  • Honey Butter Spread
  • Jam or Fruit Spreads
  • Olive Oil & Herb Dips
  • Meat & Cheese Platter (specifically thinly sliced ham and provolone cheese is so good on these for sandwiches)
  • Honey or Maple Syrup
  • Arugula & Turkey (another sandwich idea)



Can dinner rolls be made ahead?

Absolutely! The dinner rolls can be fully prepared and cooked in advance. I recommend letting the dinner rolls completely cool, the storing them in a ziplock or air-tight container until ready to serve.

How to store leftovers?

The dinner rolls will last on the counter (with proper storage) up to 4 days, and in the freezer up to 1 month.

The BEST Homemade Potato Dinner Rolls



Servings: 18

  • 1/2 cup Warm Water
  • 4 tbsp. Granulated Cane Sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp. Instant Yeast
  • 1 cup Mashed Potatoes (boil 3-4 Yukon gold potatoes, peel, then mash)
  • 1/4 cup Whole Milk
  • 6 tbsp. Olive Oil, or melted and cooled butter
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 4 - 4 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp. Honey, for brushing
  • + 1 Egg, for brushing


  1. In the bow of a stand mixer, proof the yeast by mixing the warm water, 1 tablespoon sugar, and yeast together. Set aside for 10 minutes to activate.
  2. Add in the remaining sugar, mashed potatoes, milk, olive oil, eggs, and salt. Whisk until well-combined.
  3. Add in the flour. Using the dough hook attachment, knead on medium-low for 5-6 minutes. The dough should be smooth and pliable.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp kitchen towel or plastic wrap, then set aside in a warm environment to rise until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  5. Grease a 9x13" baking pan.
  6. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut into 18 equal pieces.
  7. Roll each dough piece into small balls, then place seam side down in the prepared baking pan. (It's okay for them not to have any space in-between.)
  8. Cover and let the rolls rise for 20 more minutes.
  9. Preheat oven to 350F.
  10. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg and the honey. Brush the mixture on top of the rolls.
  11. Bake until golden brown on top, about 20-25 minutes.
  12. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

When you say mashed potatoes, are you saying to just make up a batch of homemade mashed potatoes with all the normal stuff that goes in them? Or just potatoes that are boiled, peeled and mashed.? A little confused 🤔
