Ingredients:  
2 pkg of active dry yeast
1 cup of lukewarm water
2 cups of milk scalded
1 1/3 cup of sugar
2 tsp of salt
4 eggs beaten
1 cup of mashed potatoes
12 cups of flour (Give or take)

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Combined the milk, sugar, and salt and let stand until the milk is lukewarm. In a large bowl, beat the eggs into the mashed potatoes. Gradually beat in the milk mixture. Add the dissolved yeast and start working in the flour. Add enough flour to make a manageable dough. (Potato bread dough is always a little more sticky) Turn out onto a floured surface and knead in more flour until the dough is elastic and smooth. Place dough in a clean greased bowl and cover and let rise until double in bulk. ( Potato bread rises very rapidly because of the potato starch) Punch down and let rise one more time. Make four equal loaves and let rise. Place loaves in a preheated 375 oven for 40 minutes or until it tests done.

This is a great bread and Mom would sometimes bake this in her large oval dutch oven or cast roaster which made a huge loaf of bread.
