i use my father in law's recipie. these make exellent rolls--perfect for tiny sandwiches.
1 pkg yeast
1and 1/2 c. warm water
1 cup mashed potatoes
2/3 cup sugar (i don't think that much sugar is neccessary. feel free to cut down. i do.)
1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
6-7 cups of flour
using 3-4 cups of the flour, beat everything together until smooth, then mix in remaining flour and knead, refrigerate 8 hrs. to over night, bake @ 400 15-20 minutes or until lightly brown.
i generally combine the water, yeast, sugar and set it aside.....and sometimes, depending on where you live, you might need more yeast. that's a lot of flour. when the yeast and sugar start to foam, i mix it with the potatoes, and the eggs lightly beaten, and the dry ingredients that i have already combined. when you start mixing this shit together, it's a sticky mess, so knead it and mix it in the bowl. a big ass bowl. when it feels like soft clay, not sticky anymore, it's ready. throw it in the fridge, and to hell with it until the next morning. in the morning, i pull out the dough, have coffee, turn the oven on, and pull off pieces of dough about 1/2 the size of how big i want the rolls. this makes an assload of rolls, so i give them to people, too. nobody in their right mind turns down homemade bread. when they come out of the oven, brush with a little melted margarine or butter.
I LOVE cold turkey sandwiches on white bread (I normally eat wheat) with mayo!!! they are the absolute best! But, since we have only been getting a turkey breast...there isn't much leftover!
And my mom makes a great turkey vegetable soup out of her leftovers!!
And I second the hot brown!!! Delicious!!!!!
