  • 2 medium potatoes peeled and diced into 1-in cubes
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic mashed
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast 1/4 oz package
  • 1 cup warm water 110F
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour


  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Place potatoes in a medium pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium and let potatoes simmer until very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes and let cool 5 minutes then finely mash with roasted garlic until no lumps remain. Set aside to cool.
  • In the bowl of a large stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand 5 minutes until foamy, then mix in honey, oil, egg, salt, and cooled potato mixture.
  • Add 4 cups flour to bowl and mix on medium speed until a smooth dough forms, adding additional flour if needed. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in a large greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place 1-1/2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Punch risen dough down and divide into 16 pieces. Roll each portion of dough into a smooth ball and place in a greased 9x13 baking pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg and water together until smooth and brush over dinner rolls dough. Let rolls rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake dinner rolls at 375F 20-25 minutes or until rolls are a deep golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Return to oven and broil on high 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove rolls from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes then serve warm. Enjoy!
