      Awesome sweet and buttery buns! Haven't made yeast dough using potato for far too long - it makes for taste plus. Great instructions. The butter/sugar in the centre was a first for me - made for a wonderful treat to serve for brunch! Thank you for sharing a recipe that is now in my Special Occasion Cookbook!

      HELP! I started making this recipe and found that it doesn't instruct you what to do with the eggs or the mashed 1/2 of potato! I just took a guess. We'll see if the buns turn out tomorrow!
