Cooking Instructions

1

In a large mixer bowl combine 2 cups flour and the yeast. In a small saucepan combine milk, butter, sugar, pepper, and salt. Cook and stir until warm (115°F to 120°F) and butter is almost melted. Add to flour mixture. Add eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in cheddar, mashed potatoes, and as much remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon.


2

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).


3

Punch down; turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Roll each piece into a 16 inch long rope. On a greased baking sheet, braid 3 ropes together. Repeat on a second greased baking sheet with remaining ropes. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled (about 30 minutes). Bake at 375°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until done, covering with foil the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Remove from pans; cool.
