Soft Potato Rolls

Never one to throw anything away, related to food that I could possibly use in another way, this is how the potato rolls started. I had a couple of baked potatoes looking at me from the bench for a day….and I knew there had to be an answer…admitedly I had heard of potato bread before and in fact I think there is a way to use potatoes as yeast, but that is another day and another recipe! I used the multi loaf tin, cos they looked so darn cute…but you can hand form the dough into any shape you want. Brush with a little melted butter when they come out and voila, great for a dinner party, nice as a sandwich, toasted…you know the drill!
