  1. Those look really good! Hmm… Maybe I’ll try to modify them for a gluten free version! :)

    To the KING be all the glory!

  2. Yes, I think these could freeze nicely. I’ve never done it but I would think, if you freeze them after the cutting and then thaw and let them rise, they should do well. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

  3. i have made 10+ attempts at bread but never have luck. I think its a fight with the yeast. All the yeast i find says no need to add water to activate. How would this change the directions here?

  4. Just skip the dissolving stage and just put the yeast into the flour and mix. You may have a bad batch of yeast if it’s not raising. Sometimes I’m not patience enough, it could take longer than a recipe calls for if the temp. of the room is cooler. You could put your oven on warm for 10 minutes, shut off and the try to raise the bread there. HTH

  5. You will still need the liquid but the yeast doesn’t need to be proofed. I hope that makes sense to you.

  6. I made these potato rolls today for my family and another family. Totally crashed my diet. I ate two before dinner. They were exceptional. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  7. Hi,
    I’d like to try this recipe. These rolls really look delicious. Could you please explain what 2pkg stands for?

  8. Hi,

    I am thinking about trying this recipe – could you tell me how you add the butter? Is it cold, in small cubes or melted?

    Thank You!
