Sour Cream Potato Rolls
Aunt Lois was a marvelous cook. She and Uncle Frank lived on a cattle ranch far across the desert. We loved to take the kids and visit them. The kids would ride horses and help Uncle Frank feed the cattle. Aunt Lois would fix a wonderful dinner with the best roast beef, lots of potatoes and gravy, and light, fluffy rolls. She made the rolls with sour cream and potato water from the boiled potatoes. With a pat of butter and homemade jam, they were perfect These are Aunt Lois's rolls.
Now you can make homemade rolls like Aunt Lois. Just follow the easy instructions on the package. You can use your stand-type mixer, your bread machine, or make them by hand.
- Step 1: Mix the dough. Use the dough setting on your bread machine or the dough hook on your stand-type mixer. Mix for four minutes.
- Step 2: Let it rise. Don't worry about the time; just let it rise until it's puffy and doubled in size.
- Step 3: Form the rolls. Nothing fancy here. Just form uniform balls by pulling the dough around the center and pinching the edges together on the bottom. Lay the rolls in a well-greased pan, cover with plastic and let rise until doubled.
- Step 4: Let 'em bake. Bake for about 25 minutes in a 350 oven.

Just follow the easy instructions on the package to mix the dough. You can use your stand-type mixer, your bread machine, or make them by hand. Make them as round dinner rolls or follow these instructions to form Kaiser Rolls.
Cut a piece of dough off about twice what you would use for a dinner roll. (We scale the dough at 3.5 ounces for our sandwich rolls and 2 ounces for large dinner rolls.) Roll the dough out into a rope about eight inches long.
Form a simple over-hand knot in the center of the dough. Leave the knot loose; do not try to draw it tight. You will have two protruding ends a couple inches long.
Take one of the ends and continue it around the rope and push it down through the center hole. It should look like the picture to the right.
Take the other end of the dough, go around the rope, and push the end up through the center hole. The finished roll should look like the one to the right.
It’s more complicated to try to describe the forming process than it is to form the rolls. After the first couple, you’ll breeze right through without even thinking.
Because these are so good and so easy, keep some on hand to make your next dinner perfect.
