4 or 5 Potatoes
1 - 1 1/2 cups Flour
Bake 4 or 5 potatoes, in the skin, until soft inside. Peel, and discard peel. Mash potatoes, I use a potato ricer, so I get a nice fine, even texture. Combine 1 - 1 1/2 cups of flour to every 2 cups of mashed potato and form thick dough. Kids can eat the scraps. It has no raw egg in it, and leaving it out for a bit, there is nothing in it to spoil.
The color will gray after a while, but if you add food coloring, when you make it, you won't even notice. If you have extra, roll it is balls and press your thumb in one side, and roll it across the back side of a fork. Cook in boiling water for 1 min. and serve either with tomato sauce or butter or even brown gravy. They taste great.
