1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
1-3/4 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup warm mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 cups all-purpose flour
Melted butter, optional
In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, butter, oil, sugar, egg and mashed potatoes; mix well. Stir in the salt, baking powder, baking soda and enough flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Cover one piece. Shape the other piece into 16 balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Repeat with the remaining dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter if desired.
