This is a recipe from my mother’s best friend’s grandmother. It is over 100 years old and has been adapted over the years for modern technology advances. You can use the dough all at once or as much as you want/need and keep unused dough well covered and refrigerated. These rolls are just too awesome for words and make great little “snacker” sandwiches!
In a small bowl or cup dissolve yeast in the lukewarm water and set aside.
In a small pan over medium heat, slightly scald milk (just bring it almost to a boil but do NOT boil). Then remove from heat.
Into the bowl of a stand mixer add potatoes, sugar, salt and oil. Add milk, mix to combine then let the mixture cool until lukewarm. Add yeast, eggs and 3 cups of flour and beat until smooth in mixer with a dough hook. Gradually add remaining flour and knead until you have a soft and smooth dough (about 10-15 minutes). Grease a large bowl and place dough inside the bowl. Turn to coat dough with oil on all sides. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until dough doubles (overnight).
Punch down dough and let it rest 5 minutes. Shape into rolls (or 2 loaves) and place on the pan of your choice. Cover with a towel and let it rise in a warm place for 2-3 hours or until doubled.
Heat oven 400 F. Put the tray of rolls into the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
