YIELD: 4 dozen




  • Mix together the first three ingredients (milk, yeast and sugar). When the yeast becomes active, add the eggs, potatoes and 4 cups of flour. When that mixture is bubbly, add salt, oil and the flour (don't add all of it until you make sure you need it all -- you don't want it too stiff). When too thick to stir, pour onto flourered board and knead. Dough should be soft--almost sticky. Place in greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until double in bulk. Punch down. Let rise again. divid dough into easy to handle portions.
  • For dinner rolls: roll into balls and place in greased pan. When raised, bake at 375 degrees until golden brown (about 15 to 18 minutes).
  • For cinnamon rolls: roll dough 1/4-inch thick. Spread with melted butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and nuts (if desired). Roll up and slice into 1 1/2 -inch sections and place in greased pan. Let them raise until almost doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown (12 to 15 minutes). Glaze with frosting (milk, butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese and vanilla).
