1medium-sized potatoI used a white potato, peeled and diced
1package instant yeast2-1/4 tsp
4-1/4cupsall-purpose flourmay need an additional 1/2 cup
*2 tablespoons melted butter for brushing roll tops prior to baking
Caraway or other seeds
Boil potato in 2 cups of water. Remove the cooked potato, reserving water. Mash the potato and allow it to cool. You will need 1 cup.
In a large bowl, add remaining ingredients (excluding optional butter or seeds) to 1 cup of mashed potatoes and 1-1/2 cup of potato water. If you don't have enough potato water add lukewarm water.
Knead dough until soft. Add additional water or flour if necessary.
Put dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise 90 minutes.
Punch dough down and form rolls. I used a scale and got 34 rolls weighing approximately 1.35 ounces each. Put rolls on a greased pan. Cover and allow to raise an additional hour. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Brush tops with melted butter and seeds. Bake approximately 20-25 minutes or until brown.
Store at room temperature in an airtight bag or container.
