    This recipe is wonderful for rolls. You may use instant potato flakes and nonfat dry milk for both the bread and rolls. A time saving technique for recipes that cannot be delayed ..... the night before, measure all the dry ingredients (except the yeast) and pour it into a covered bowl. Then next morning, pour the water and oil into the pan, add the dry ingredients, then the yeast. Takes about 1 minute.
