potato rolls

baking recipes side dish

I learned this recipe from mykitchenescapes.  These dinner rolls are amazing.  If they make more than what you need for a few days, they freeze beautifully.

I am not a patient person, but seeing results is very encouraging for me.

There is just something magical about seeing dough double in size.

You can tell in this picture that my patience is starting to wear thin and my stomach is getting hungry.  Please excuse my not-so-evenly divided dough balls.  Thank goodness they all still baked perfectly =)

Let them double again.  Magic.
