Potato spelt rolls

I rarely leave any potatoes to spare, but here's a roll recipe for just those occassions when too many potatoes have been roasted. Of course the potatoes can also be roasted especially for these spelt rolls. I really like potatoes in different kind of breads and this is just one of my basic roll recipes, so easy to make and very economical and tasty.

Recipe for 10 rolls


6 roasted new potatoes
25 g butter
200 ml lukewarm water
1 tbsp dry yeast
300 g spelt flour
1 tsp salt


Mash the potatoes and melt the butter.

Add the yeast, salt, water and butter to the potatoes and mix.

Gradually add the flour and knead.

Let rise under a teatowel for about one hour.

Shape rolls from the dough.

Bake at 250 C for about 15 minutes.

Enjoy warm or later on once cooled.

I want to share with this rolls recipe with Credit Crunch Munch hosted by Lancashire Food in July and co-hosted by Fab Food 4 All and Fuss Free Flavours, as this is quite a cunning way using a few left-over roast potatoes. All other ingredients in this recipe are basic and cheap as well. It really pays off baking your own bread and it's so wonderful to have fresh bread!

  4. Wow I love the sound of these - we sometimes have roast potato leftover but it never lasts long except if I forget about it like my last batch which went into a stirfry - now I wish I had put it into bread - would love to try it in my sourdough. Though I am surprised you mashed your roast potato as I gather it would have crunchy bits but I know that mashed potato is great in breads - I think I fancy little chunks in mine (did you have chunks in your bread?)

    1. These certainly had some chunks in them and quite often I make potato loaves that have bigger chucks in them. :)


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
