Ahh, the glorious potato roll. Perfect for burgers and many other fillings due to their soft and fluffy melt-in-the-mouth texture and their neutral flavour. A better alternative to the standard white bread roll, for sure. Let’s take a look at why.
What is a Potato Roll?
A potato roll is made from potato bread, a type of bread where some of the wheat flour is replaced with potato flour or potato. The ratio of potato to wheat flour can vary from product to product. Some potato bread still has a lot of wheat flour and only a small amount of potato, whereas other potato bread leans more towards potato.
Potato bread is healthier than normal white bread, which is made from flour which has had much of the fibre and nutrients removed. Thus, replacing some of the white flour with potato increases the nutritional value of the end product.
Are Potato Rolls Good for Burgers?
Yes, a potato roll is ideal as a burger roll because it has a neutral flavour which won’t interfere with the taste of your burger pattie and toppings. Also, the potato in the mix creates a softer, fluffier texture that melts in your mouth. This is because the starch in the potato absorbs more water and holds it in the dough for longer. This is also what gives potato bread a longer shelf life, too.
The potato starch also disrupts the gluten, making it difficult for the gluten network to form, which can make the bread easier to digest than wheat-only bread.
Then there is the potassium content of the potatoes. Not only is potassium an essential mineral we all need, but it also accelerates the yeast action, thus causing the bread to rise quicker.
