I made these on St. Patty's Day to go with our meal. These are no yummy.
1 large potato, cooked and mashed (you need 1/2 cup mashed potato)
1/4 cup of the potato water
3/4 cup butter, soft
1/2 cup of warm milk (110-115) *I used half and half ....1/2 milk 1/2 water*
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/8 tsp yeast
2 1/2 - 3 cups AP flour
In a stand mixer combine the mashed potato, egg, butter, salt and the egg. Mix with the paddle blade for about 2 minutes. Combine the warm milk, potato water and yeast together, add to the potato mixture, mix until combined. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time until you get a soft dough. Switch to the dough hook and continue to add the flour until you have a soft tacky dough but not sticky. Your flour amount will depend on the weather. Transfer to a very lightly oiled bowl and let rise until doubled. When they have doubled remove and punch down. Shape into rolls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart, dust lightly with flour. Cover and let rise until doubled about 45-60 minutes. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
