8 cups flour (approx)
Cream sugar and shortening together. Add well beaten eggs, milk, and mashed potatoes. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water and add to sugar mixture. Add enough flour to form soft dough and mix well. Let rise overnight. (or make early in the morning and bake in the late afternoon or evening). Bake in moderate oven (375-400).
Mix dry ingredients well. Add water all at once. Dough should be somewhat sticky. Flatten into disk-like shape. Deep fry at 350°F until golden brown or each side or heat about 1” of oil until a small amount of dough rises to top of oil as soon as you put it in. Makes 16 pieces.
Parmesan Breadsticksby Cara Sullenger
Frozen dinner rolls
¼ cup butter, melted
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Thaw rolls and let rise (usually takes 2-3 hours). After they’ve risen, stretch or roll pieces into about 5 inches. Dip in butter then parmesan. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Can add garlic salt for added taste. Make how many you want.
POTATO BREADby Vicki Allan
4 cups milk (I use 4 cups water and 3/4 cup of dry milk)
1 cup mashed potato (I use 1 cup potato pearls and 1 cup hot water)
Heat milk in the microwave until very hot to touch (2-3 minutes). Add to this: potatoes, salt, sugar, oil and enough white flour to make a thick soup. When it has cooled off (so it is not hot to the touch), add egg. Add the yeast and mix (while still warm for yeast to dissolve). Let rest for 15 minutes. Add the rest of the flours and mix well. Dough should pull away from sides of pan, leaving them clean. Knead for 5 minutes in Bosch or KitchenAid. Cover and let rise until doubled (about 45 minutes). Make into four loaves. Melt 1/4 cup margarine. Place margarine in bottom of loaf pans. Place top side of loaf into pan to coat topside with butter, then place in loaf pan (right side up). Cover and let rise again (about 45 minutes). Bake at 350 oven for 35 minutes. You can split the dough for one loaf into thirds and bake in small loaf pans. Reduce baking time for small loafs by five minutes. Sometimes I make with 4 cups white and 4 cups whole wheat flour.
