Next time you have left over mashed potatoes, try these dinner rolls:

Grandma Snarr's Icebox Rolls

1 cake yeast
1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/2 cup lard (or Crisco)
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup mashed potatoes
8 cups flour

Mix well hot potatoes, sugar, salt, eggs and fat. Soak yeast in 1/2 cup water, then add other cup of water and work in 4 cups flour. Beat for 5 minutes, then work in other 4 cups of flour. Knead well until dough is soft. Let rise 1 hour and punch down, then let rise 30 minutes. Form into rolls and let rise in pan for 1 hour. Bake in modest oven for 20 minutes. Can be put in icebox and baked as desired.

Or these potato puffs:

Potato Puffs


1 cup mashed potatoes
cup flour
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
cup grated cheese (opt)
S&P to taste
3 tbls milk if needed for right texture…a little stiffer than peanut butter

Mix all together and drop heaping teaspoons full into 350 degree preheated oil in skillet. (About 1” of oil,.,enough to float puffs)

We get by with a little help from our friends
