What comfort food this is! Mashed potatoes with cheese and onions wrapped in a crispy roll, absolutely YUM. Much easier to make than it sounds. I think I got through the prep in about 45 minutes, and if I can do it, anyone can do it. I am trying to overcome my terror of yeast, lol. This is one more recipe I did with yeast and one step closer to yeast acceptance. I loved this and I will have to make this for my vegetarian friend, she will go bonkers for it! Thanks Sue! I always win with your recipes. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
