Recipe by LB in Middle Georgia
This is another one of my best friends mothers recipes that she got form a Home Economics Teacher. While there are others potato roll recipes out there this one has no milk and for people that have milk allergies or dairy problems I recommend this. When I say unsweetened mashed potatoes, I mean no butter no milk just plain old mashed potato. I usually put two potatoes in the microwave, my girlfriend uses flakes,(1c flakes 1c water), and I am sure that a baked potato would give it an extra special flavor. I put this in a That’s a bowl and it seems to contain its massiveness but watch it and punched down if it gets out of hand.
