Jailhouse Rolls/Texas Jailhouse Rolls

You may wonder to read today's recipe name, yes my post's is Jailhouse Rolls. This rolls is quite popular in Texas. Many Jail cafeterias in most of counties in Texas made these rolls regularly. These rolls are extremely moist, yeasty, soft and super delicious as well. Mashed potatoes plays an important and major role for preparing this dinner rolls dough eventhough egg is added in this bread dough. While googling, i came to know that this rolls were a recipe of a great aunt who made them during and after the Civil war for the jailers and inmates in Jefferson of Texas as well as for the men who lived in her boarding house. I accidentaly came to know about this rolls while searching something new and completely different to bake and post under 'J' as am running a whole month of blogging with A-Z Baking around the world as theme.

This rolls came out extremely soft and delicious, to enjoy with any of your favourite spread or else to enjoy just by tearing a piece and dip in some spicy curries or sauces. Trust me, this rolls makes an excellent meal and definitely a satisfying one to have during anytime of the day depending upon how you serve this ultimate rolls. Though the original recipe calls for three eggs, i opted for just an egg as i almost halved the quantity of the ingredients given by the original recipe.
