  • Oven


  • 4 cups Bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt Or 2 if you're not adding olives butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dry active yeast Or 15g fresh yeast
  • 1 cup Milk Room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Melted butter
  • 1/2 cup Mashed potatoes Or potato starch
  • 1 unit Egg

Olives butter

  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 tablespoon Pitted black olives
  • 2 tablespoon Pitted green olives
  • 4 units Anchovies


  • If you don’t have potato starch you can start boiling your peeled potatoes to prepare mashed potatoes and set aside. 
  • If we use instant yeast dissolve it in the milk and let it rest for some minutes. 
  • Now you can add the bread flour, the salt, the sugar and the milk and mix it well. 
  • Add the egg and the yeast and start kneading. 
  • Knead by hand or using your kitchen robot until you have a nice dough.
  • Still kneading and add the melted butter, keep kneading until you have a nice dough that doesn’t stick to your hands.
  • Grease a bowl to place the dough and let it rise covered for one hour.
  • Form 12 small rolls with the dough and fill them with olive butter (optional) and let it rise for another hour in your baking tray. You can also add the olive butter between the small bread rolls.
  • Preheat your oven 356º Fahrenheit (180º Celsius).
  • Brush your potato dinner rolls with butter. 
  • Baked for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven, until they look golden and baked.
  • Let the potato dinner rolls cool for some minutes and enjoy!
