Pink/green/purple: Penny's first ever quilt! And it's a king!
While the rolls are rising, I can quilt another top that I loaded last night!
For the curious: mashed-potato dinner rolls is an old, old family recipe that uses actual mashed potatoes in the dough mixture. So, in our families, no one will take the last couple of servings of mashed potatoes whenever they are served. This to insure the making of potato rolls! More often than not, it works! I am not particularly a bread fan, but these are really good!
I roll out the dough and cut them into round circles, then slather them with melted butter and fold over so they come out kind of half moon shaped. They rise for the second time, then bake. That way, the buttery, pre-folding/baking step allows them to open perfectly for making turkey sandwiches! I mixed up a triple batch - that makes about 100 dinner rolls.
In the last third, I added a great organic whole grain cereal mix: cracked wheat, steel cut oats, barley grits, buckwheat grits, wheat bran, corn grits and millet. It is good cooked up as a hot cereal, it's great in mashed-potato rolls!
That triple batch should be enough for my family dinner and a couple of orders, but not many left-overs though. I may mix up some more on Saturday for Sunday's dinner. We'll see.
And, as you can see from this picture:
The dough has risen, so time to get back to work and make up some rolls! (7-grain on left, regular on right)
Back to work! Did you just hear that whip crack? I am such a slave driver!!!
You can tell from this pic that it might be time to wash the apron!!!
