  • 5 cups bread flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise™ Yeast
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes*
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat milk, water and shortening until very warm (120º to130ºF). Gradually add to dry ingredients.
  2. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  3. Stir in mashed potato, eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into 2 equal portions. Roll each half to 12 x 7-inch rectangle.
  5. Spread 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese over the surface of the dough, then roll up tightly as for a jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal and bake.
  6. Place seams side down, in greased 8-1/2x4-1/2 inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  7. Bake at 375ºF for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack.
  8. Instant mashed potatoes, made according to package directions can be used.
