Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Serving Size: 8 rolls


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes (cooled)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cooking spray or olive oil (for greasing)


  1. Activate Yeast:
    • In a bowl, combine warm milk and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the mixture, stir gently, and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Prepare Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, flour, melted butter, and salt. Pour in the activated yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead Dough:
    • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. First Rise:
    • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  5. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  6. Form Rolls:
    • Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 8 equal portions. Flatten each portion, add a spoonful of crumbled bacon and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese. Enclose the filling and shape each portion into a round roll.
  7. Second Rise:
    • Place the shaped rolls on a tray lined with parchment paper. Cover with a damp cloth and let them rise for an additional 20 minutes.
  8. Air Fry Rolls:
    • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place the rolls in the basket, leaving space between them. Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for 12-15 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
  9. Check for Doneness:
    • Check the rolls for doneness by tapping them; they should sound hollow.
  10. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the rolls to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy these delightful potato rolls with bacon warm!
