Does anyone have a recipe for refrigerator potato bread? It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

I read a recipe for this bread in the Tightwad Gazette, you may search for it online.
Potato Refrigerator Bread
1 cup mashed potatoes
(or 3/4 cup instant potato flakes mixed until smooth with 1 cup or more boiling water and cooled)
2/3 cup shortening
3 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 cup whole milk, scalded, then cooled to lukewarm
5 to 6 cups bread flour, sifted
1. Place mashed potatoes in mixer bowl; add shortening, salt and sugar. Cream the mixture well.
2. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water; mix in the lukewarm milk. Add yeast mixture to potato mixture. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough. Toss on floured board and knead well, until smooth, 6 to 8 minutes.
3. Grease a large bowl, add dough and turn to coat. Cover and let rise until double in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Knead lightly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
4. Shape dough into two loaves or three dozen rolls. Let rise until doubled in volume, about 45 minutes for rolls, 1 hour for loaves.
5. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake rolls at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Bake loaves at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
