You asked for a potato roll recipe.  This is from my hometown recipe book.
I have not tried it personally yet, but my grandmother and I have made
kolache's with potato dough and they are great!  I do not have a bread
machine so I do it all by hand.

1 pkg yeast
2/3 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt

        In bowl, dissolve yeast in water.  Stir in sugar, salt, shortening,
eggs,and potatoes.  Mix flour in until dough is easy to handle.  Turn onto
lightly floured board.  Knead until smooth and elastic.  Place greased side

hrs. before baking, shape dough into rolls.  Cover and let rise until double.
