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

2 eggs

5 to 6 cups bread flour, sifted

Melted butter

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.
