Gluten Free Potato Bread Rolls

"This is a recipe from Friendly Food Recipes for Life by Royal Prince Albert Hospital Allergy Unit. This dough produces a very acceptable bread roll. It has a bagel-like crust and chewy texture. Potato rolls can be frozen. Wrape them in foil to reheat in oven. Original recipe did not give a quanity for salt, so not sure if this is the correct amount."

  1. terrible recipe....doesn't even say WHEN to add the 2nd half of the sugar...did not rise as it said, was gummy, yeasty and just plain awful. with potato four being so expensive--this was a huge waste of time and money.<br/><br/>PLEASE have this recipe corrected or DELETED!
  2. It's spongey mashed potatoes. I was hoping the other review had just had bad luck with the recipe, but definitely not. I generally try and share my gluten free food with others to show I still eat well...these do not qualify as eating well. The recipe is from a hospital and that's exactly where you'd expect to find food that tastes like this.
  3. my dough didn't rise like it said it should, but I cooked it anyways. I wasn't sure how to form it into rolls, so I just made balls. I cooked them at 350 f for about 15-20 min. until golden brown. I didn't like the taste at all they tasted like yeasty or bad mashed potatoes.


I'm a part time at home Mom with two beautiful girls aged 10 and 13, who take after their mother and love to cook also. I love trying out new recipes, especially those that are light, healthy and have lots of flavour. My passion in life is to help woman grow into their potential, which I do through mentoring in my local church. For fun I enjoy reading, mosaics, gardening and having coffee with friends. My pet peeves - political correctness and blame shifting.
