DIRECTIONS
Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook until tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid; cool to 110 degrees-115 degrees F. Discard remaining cooking liquid.


Mash potatoes without milk or butter. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in reserved cooking liquid. Add mashed potatoes, milk, oil, sugar, eggs and salt. Add enough flour to form a soft dough.


Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.


Punch dough down; let rise again until doubled, about 20 minutes. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 3-in. doughnut cutter.


In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, until golden brown. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar, water and vanilla in a bowl. Dip warm doughnuts in glaze. Cool on wire racks.

Idaho Spudnuts
I grew up in El Paso back in the 50's and I sold bags of (6)spudnuts door to door for .35 cents per bag. The Meade Bakery made the spudnuts and I'd fill up the basket on my bicycle. They were and still are the most delicious doughnuts in the world but I had to stop selling because I was eating more then I was selling. A couple bags of spudnuts and a Dr Pepper ~ that was living!
