Drain, saving 1/2 cup of the potato water.
Mash potatoes until smooth and measure out 1/2 cup of them.
Sprinkle yeast over warm water to dissolve.
Combine mashed potato, 1/2 cup of the reserved potato water, butter, sugar, salt, and eggs.
When mixture is lukewarm, stir in yeast.
Cover with a tea towel and set bowl in a warm place until mixture is spongy looking.
Then mix in the flour thoroughly. (At this point you should have a soft dough add more flour, if needed.)
Cover and let rise in a warm spot until double in size.
Punch dough down and knead on a floured board until smooth.
Pinch off pieces of the dough and shape into buns about 3 inches in diameter.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise a third time until almost double in size.
Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
When buns begin to turn golden brown, brush tops with cream or melted butter.
Cool before serving.
