Best Parker House Rolls Recipe

These are one of the easiest and most delicious Parker house roll recipes out there.

These rolls are hard to keep your hands off of, which can either be a good thing or a bad one, depending on your muffin top right now.

Baking bread rolls seems to be America’s pastime right now during this stay at home order the country is in right now during the covid-19 pandemic. The great thing about this recipe, is that they are very hard to mess up.

The dough is very forgiving, if you are off a little bit on one ingredient or another, 9 times out of 10 no one will be the wiser.

I like baking recipes, especially  these Parker house rolls in nordic ware 12" pan because of their ease of use.

These are definitely my go to rolls when I want a soft, melt in your mouth, buttery, dinner roll. Here is how to make parker house rolls, I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Parker House Rolls (Dinner Rolls)


Parker house rolls (dinner rolls)

  • 1 whole egg (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup milk (room temp or slightly warm)
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3-3 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted for brushing)

For the dough

  1. Place egg and sugar in a Kitchenaid stand mixer with the paddle attachment and whip for 20 seconds. Add potato, milk, softened butter and salt and mix well.

    Add 2 cups flour and yeast. Beat for 1 min until smooth then switch the stand mixer to dough hook. Gradually add four, 1/2 cup at a time until it cleans sides of the mixing bowl and has lost much of the stickiness.

    Knead with dough hook 3 minutes, add flour only if it begins to stick to sides. Then take out and place a towel over the bowl (this is the first rise). Allow to proof for about an hour or so. “Punch” down the dough and then portion into equal size portions (2 oz).

    Shape the dough into balls or whatever other shape you desire. Butter or spray your baking dish and place the shaped dough into the dish.

    Brush tops with melted butter and cover with wax paper and leave at room temp until doubled, about 30 minutes.

To finish

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

    I like to add a touch more butter and salt on top of my rolls. Place the rolls in the oven and Bake until golden, approximately 15 minutes. Remove and immediately brush with more melted butter. Serve and enjoy!
