3/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk
5 tbsp (70gr ) unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup potato flakes (unsalted, regular)
3 - 3  1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 packet of yeast ( 2 1/4 tsp)
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

I use for all my yeast-dough recipes my Must -Have thing in the kitchen-Bread Machine. If you don't have a Bread Machine  here is what you will need to do.

1. Put water, milk, sugar , salt and butter in a small saucepan. When the butter will be melted (not boiling), add the potato flakes, mix it very well with the spoon and leave it for 1 minute.

2. In separate bowl mix together 1 cup of flour and yeast. Add the potato mix (not hot) into the flour and mix it with the mixer. Add 1 egg. Mix it for 3 minutes.Add more flour and mix it with the wooden spoon. Put your dough on the floured surface of the kitchen table and knead it for 10 minutes. At the end, add the fresh dill. The dough should be soft and elastic.

3. Put the ball of the dough in the bowl and cover it with the plastic or cotton towel. Place it in a warm place for one hour. After the dough will double in size, divide it in 16-20 pieces. Shape the rolls and put them inside the baking pan ( two circle cake pans). The pans , of course, are buttered. Cover the pans with the plastic and let them stand or 45-60 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 375 F. Brush the diner rolls with an egg wash. Sprinkle the poppy seeds or sesame seeds. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

These dinner rolls are great for sandwiches.
