Potato rolls with Lievito Madre

This month Sandra of Snuggs Kitchen is the lovely host for Bread Baking Day 77, the great invention of Zorra of Kochtopf. Sandra came up with the theme: Summer buns and rolls. These go well with hot weather.
Back to the potato rolls. They are delicious. The potato and the yoghurt makes the dough soft. The rolls smelled a bit sweet. These rolls are in the top 3 of “our favorite rolls”. The crust is good, not too thick and the crumb is open and the flavour is slightly sweet. 

I love to use my Lievito Madre sourdough. I've used other sourdough starters, but this one is so easy and forgiving. I found the recipe at Stefanies Hefe und Mehr. The rainy season can be tricky for sourdough. Last year it went bad when I fed the sourdough during the rain with the window open. But, it's so easy to start a new Lievito Madre.

That's also where I found these delicious potato rolls. Stefanie likes to bake overnight rolls. Even though we wake up pretty early, around 5.30 - 6.00 o'clock, I can't find the time to proof and bake them. I'm more a fan of baking during the day and eat them the same evening. So, I did let the dough ferment overnight in the refrigerator I baked them after breakfast.

We ate the rolls with our friends who came for dinner. We had potato rolls, Baba Ganoush, Hummus, Garlic butter, Guacamole and a nice salad. We had a nice evening.
