1 cup of mashed potatoes
1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter
1 cup of lukewarm milk
2 eggs, room temperature (if you have a hard time with this, simply put your eggs in a bowl of warm to hot water for a couple minutes, and voila! room temp)
2-1/2 tsp of yeast, I used active, you could easily use active instant
Add 2 cups to start and then gradually add 1-1/2 cups more of flour
You may need another 1/2-1 cup of flour, depending on your weights, size of eggs, etc.
Don't worry, it will be fine.
This will be a wet dough, That's okay!
Cut or form your rolls, let them rise another hour or so in a nice draft-free space. Brush with an egg wash ( 1 egg, 1Tblsp water)
This is why you brush with the egg wash. I'll write more about that later.Now, You are ready to bake! As Mrs. Joyce said, “bake in a moderate oven “. (350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 180 degrees Celcius)
