      This was nice and hearty comfort food on this cold evening. Rather than the hot roll mix, I used kittencal's recipe "throw away the bread machine instructions" and used the dough cycle of my bread maker. I did think the dish could have used a little more flavor, so next time I am going to try adding some kind of meat (bacon, ham, pepperoni?) to the filling. Thanks for the recipe!

      What comfort food this is! Mashed potatoes with cheese and onions wrapped in a crispy roll, absolutely YUM. Much easier to make than it sounds. I think I got through the prep in about 45 minutes, and if I can do it, anyone can do it. I am trying to overcome my terror of yeast, lol. This is one more recipe I did with yeast and one step closer to yeast acceptance. I loved this and I will have to make this for my vegetarian friend, she will go bonkers for it! Thanks Sue! I always win with your recipes. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.

      This is something like a neightbor of mine made when I was growing up. Delicious, cheap, filling, good leftover and warmed up, portable. I might put in some caraway next time. I used homemade dough - be sure to stretch it thin. Thanks for this recipe!!!
