  1. Activate the Yeast: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together hot milk, melted butter, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  2. Incorporate Potatoes: Mix in the mashed potatoes until well combined.
  3. Combine Dry Ingredients: Slowly add flour and salt to the mixture, stirring until a dough forms.
  4. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  5. First Rise: Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  6. Shape the Rolls: Punch down the dough and divide it into equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place them on an oiled baking sheet.
  7. Second Rise: Cover the rolls and let them rise again for 30-45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  8. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  9. Apply Egg Wash: Brush the rolls with the beaten egg to give them a shiny finish.
  10. Bake: Bake the rolls for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  11. Serve: Serve these warm, handcrafted potato dinner rolls with your favorite meals and enjoy the fluffy, delicious taste.
