No-knead Breakfast Rolls with Leftover Potatoes

by Saara

Bread rolls, who doesn’t love them? Perfect for weekend brunch. Nice entertainment with kids and so easy to make on holidays. What makes this sourdough recipe extra convenient is that it takes care of your leftover potatoes!

That’s right, I got your back.

The method is as simple as it gets. Mix the dough and let it sit on the table, give it a goodnight’s rest in the fridge and bake the next morning. The recipe yields approximately 10 rolls.


  • Replace potato with any other boiled vegetable you have available
  • The recipe is proven good with semi-fresh sourdough discard
  • Adjust baking time according to your bread roll size
  • Observe the dough and let it work on itself

Give the dough pieces second shaping after another 10 minutes (optional). Let the dough balls rise on the baking tray for 30 minutes under a kitchen towel.

Sourdough breakfast rolls

These bread rolls here which I baked for an Instagram sourdough collab turned out perfect. I cut the warm as you can see. Bread rolls are supposed to enjoyed warm don’t you agreed?

This January I’m sharing a series of leftover recipes so stay tuned. I will link the future recipes here when they’re posted.

If you don’t have boiled potatoes due to being all detox after Christmas cornucopia, I have another bread roll recipe made with juice pulp here.

Love, Saara
