Just bake a potato hamburger buns. It’s a little bit darker the top but I like it this way. Very soft and melt in the mouth.
I make an orange and almond meal cake and use mashed potato for 1/2 the almond meal. It is really good - not as heavy as straight almond meal to eat. No flour
Mmm, looks delishious, biarine, you made me hungry!
In Norway we use boiled and mashed up potatoes in a huge variety of things, not just food, but cakes too. And also, along with a littlebit of flour and liquid, we make something we call "Potetlompe", which is baked on a iron stovetop or in a huge iron pan. Then we spread butter on it and sprinkle sugar and a littlebit of cinnamon on top, roll it up and eat it along with a steamy hot cup of tea or coffee.
We also - and this is going to sound strange to you in forum-land, but we also eat it by wrapping our hotdogs in it, and chomp it down like there is no tomorrow. (Did I hear an err, what?? )
We also make "Lefse" using potatoes, a thicker type than the "lompe", and it is fluffy, like a matress for a small doll
The potatoe is so usefull, and it saved a lot of lives during the war(s) here in Norway. So much so that Knut Hamsun wrote in his book "Markens Grøde" - I am translating this for you as google probably will not be accurate enough -
A man can be without bread, but as long as he has the potato, he will never be without food.
Combining bread and potatoes? I approve, even though I do have to watch my carbs...
eta, sorry, didn`t mean to ramble on about potatoes and Lefse...
Wow that’s awesome, I never hear that recipe but I am interested. I know Scandinavian cooking is very good. [emoji106]
Me too, I’ll try to watch my carb but I can’t get away with it [emoji23].
Tell me about it...
If you feel adventurous one day, here is a very good link to a great recipe. In Norway we have several types of lefse, my recipe is for a more fluffy, "matress" kind of type, but this one here is also a classic one, it is very good. It will give you an inkling of what lefse looks like, and the step by step process
They look professional!
Do you mind sharing the recipe. I used to make fluffy buns from sourdough, not anymore after I got allergies.
Thank you, yes here’s below:

1 teaspoon sea salt
25 grams butter
2 tablespoons Light olive
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons raw cane sugar
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar ( optional )
2 large eggs with 1 egg yolk, beaten
2 tablespoons potato cooking water plus 3 to 5 tablespoons if needed ( don’t put all all in one )
Sesame ( optional)
1. mix all dry ingredients. Set aside.
2. Also combine all wet ingredients.
3. Then add the wet to flour mixture.
4. Use the dough hook and knead for 10 minutes if using hand maybe 13-15 minutes of kneading.
5. Put in greased bowl and let it rise for 1 to 1.5 or until double in size. Cover with clean cloth.
6. Knead for another 2 minutes and make a ball as big or small as you like. Put in greased baking tray.
7. Set aside and cover and let it rise until double in size.

Don’t put all cooking water in one go just put 2 tablespoons first because it’s depend on your flour that you’re using as well as your environment. If it still dry add more tablespoon at a time.
