Now, just in case you want to make full proof dinner rolls, and if you have a Bosch or a Kitchen aid, you will really loves these. So here is my recipe, and may you enjoy it as much as we do, and may they stick to your butt like they do mine!
In large bowl: (kitchen aid or Bosch) : 2 packages yeast (4 1/2 tsp), 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup instant mashed potato flakes ( like the ones we get from the cannery), 1 tsp. salt. Mix.
Add the rest of the ingredients: 2 1/2 cup very warm water, 2 beaten eggs, 1 stick melted or very soft butter, 5-6 cups flour added gradually (up to 7 cups although I find 6 cups is usually enough),(I mix wheat flour as well and it is still a wonderful roll). Mix with the bread hook for about 3 minutes. The dough will pull away from the side, but don't add too much flour. The dough will be sticky to handle so grease or butter your hands when you shape the rolls.
The dough will be very sticky and soft. You may shape it now or put the dough in the fridge overnight.
Shape into balls about the size of a golf ball, and put them on a large greased cookie sheet, or jelly roll pan. I put 4 across and 6 down, and it works out perfectly for one batch of rolls.
Let rise until double in size.
Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I usually leave them 17 minutes and they are golden brown and fully cooked.
Remove from cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack.
May you make new traditions with your family around the dinner table, for Sunday dinners, with friends or family, or special holidays or event. The time spent together with loved ones is only enhanced by good food. ENJOY~!!!!
