In this fast recipe, instant mash potatoes help reduce the time it takes to make these tender, taste rolls.—Teri Albrecht, Gaithersburg, Maryland

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (120° to 130°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup mashed potato flakes
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar,yeast and salt; set aside. In another bowl, combine water, milk and butter; stir in potato flakes. Let stand for 1 minute. Add to dry ingredients. Add one egg; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Divide dough into 12 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Place a large shallow pan on the counter; fill half full with boiling water. Place baking pan containing rolls over the water-filled pan. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes. Lightly beat remaining egg; brush over rolls. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack.
