    1      Pkg           Dry Yeast
      1/2  Cup           Mashed Potatoes
      1/4  Cup           Warm Water
    1                    Egg
      1/2  Cup           Milk
      3/4  Tsp           Salt
    2      Tbls          Butter
    3 1/4  Cups          Flour
      1/4  Cup           Sugar
 Combine the dry yeast with the warm (110 degrees) water. Set aside. Heat the
 milk with the butter and sugar in a small saucepan until the butter begins
 to melt. Cool to lukewarm. Combine the mashed potatoes with the egg in a
 large bowl. Stir in the cooled milk mixture, the dissolved yeast and the
 salt. Gradually beat in enough of the flour to form a soft dough. Turn out
 onto a lightly floured board. Knead until smooth. Place in a lightly
 buttered bowl, turning to grease the entire outside surface. Cover. Let rise
 in a warm place until doubled in bulk (1-1 1/2 hours). Punch down. Knead
 again. Roll out on a lightly floured board to a thickness of  1/4". Cut out
 using a floured doughnut cutter. Cover. Let rise until doubled. Preheat the
 oil in the deep fryer. Fry doughnuts until browned on both side (about 2
 minutes). Drain. Sprinkle with sugar. Yields 18 Doughnuts From:
