Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized potato I used a white potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 package instant yeast 2-1/4 tsp
  • 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour may need an additional 1/2 cup
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Shortening Crisco
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Optional

  • *2 tablespoons melted butter for brushing roll tops prior to baking
  • Caraway or other seeds

Instructions

  • 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.
