    Outstanding!! The leftover mashed potato I used had cream cheese, sour cream and butter in it so I omitted the 2 TBSP of butter. The dough was very easy to work with (compared to other breads I have baked) and rose beautifully even though it was probably 72-73° in my kitchen. I will definitely make that bread again!!! Thanks :)

    Boy was this good! I followed the recipe to a T and I am glad that I did. The only thing that wasn't as written was the amount of flour. I had to add at least 1.5 cups to get the dough to the right consistency. Other than that, this recipe was great!

    I've made this twice in less than a week. My family has devoured it both times. I used leftover mashed potatoes, which I had on hand, so I cut the butter to 1 tablespoon. The dough is somewhat sticky but very easy to work with. Delicious toasted or plain.

    This is great bread...with a couple of comments. I cut the eggs to 3 instead of 4. I didn't hand-knead, but used the mixer with the dough hook for about 7 minutes (speed 2). Finally, this took way more than 4 1/2 cups of flour. No big deal, I just kept adding until the dough was the right consistency. Terrific recipe!

    I made this tonight to go with some vegetable stew. Modifications: Rice milk and soy butter. Result: My 11 year old son made yummy noises and yelled 5 STARS. The bread and rolls are light and moist and worth the 3 hours put into making them. Note: I did seem to use more flour than called for. Easily an extra cup if not more. Due to rice milk mod I don't know.

    These rolls were amazing!! This is what I will do with all my mashed potato leftovers from now on. No more throwing them away!

    Delicious. I used this recipe as rolls for pulled-pork sandwiches, and everyone loved them. My only criticism is to agree with csaunders80 who notes that much more flour is necessary to bring the dough to the right elasticity. I used my digital scale and followed the recipe precisely by weight, but I found myself adding much more flour than a half cup as I kneaded the dough. I believe the next time I make these I will add another half cup of bread flour before turning the dough out for kneading. Give this recipe a try. Super yummy!
