DIRECTIONS

  • If making POTATO ROLLS: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Allow the yeast to activate and then mix in sugar or honey.
  • Add mashed potatoes, vegetable oil, eggs and salt. Use mixer or bread hooks.
  • Add flour one cup at a time stopping at 5 1/2 cups. Slowly add remaining flour until the dough is only slightly sticky to the touch. The dough should be workable but not dry.
  • Place in a greased bowl and cover with a towel. Allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, or it can sit overnight at room temperature.
  • Punch down and then roll dough out on floured surface to 1/2" thickness.
  • Use a canning jar ring to cut rolls - should make 30-36 rolls.
  • Place on a greased pan and allow to rise till almost doubled.
  • Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • If desired, slather outside tops with butter while still warm.
  • Enjoy!
  • NOTE: Prep time does not include rise times as they will vary.
  • If making POTATO BREAD: Place into bread pan in order as listed above OR as per manufacturer's guidelines.
  • Set for 1 1/2 lb. bread loaf and start bread machine.
  • Walk away until you hear the "ding" of the bread machine - approximately 3 hours later.
  • Remove from pan and slather outside of the loaf with butter while still warm from machine.
  • Enjoy!
