Share "Mama’s Potato Rolls"

 
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups water (from potatoes)
  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 6-7 cups flour
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup water
  2. Mix potatoes with shortening and sugar
  3. Beat eggs and add to yeast
  4. Combine with potato mixture
  5. Add 1 cup water
  6. Add flour until thick
  7. Kneed for 10 minutes
  8. Cover and let rise until double
  9. Punch down and make into rolls (may refrigerate after punching down)
  10. Let rise until rolls are double in bulk
  11. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes

Makes about 3 dozen rolls. A double batch is pictured, it doubles very easy and I kept the dough in the frig in-between rising and baking so they wouldn’t over rise. Did take a lot longer, but my oven only holds so much.
