  • 200 g Floury potatoes
  • 1 large Chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp Add the rapeseed oil to the onions
  • 250 g Flour
  • 1 packet Dry yeast
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Linseed
  • 1 tbsp Liquid butter
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 1 Egg yolk


  • Cook the potatoes until they are done.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, dice the onions and toss them in a pan with a little oil (I used 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil) - set aside.
  • Finely mash the cooked potatoes peeled, possibly with a potato press and leave to cool in a bowl.
  • Mix with the flour, yeast, salt and the egg yolk. Add linseed, butter and milk and "knead" into a smooth dough (my food processor does that) and then let the dough rise for about an hour.
  • Preheat the oven.
  • “Knead” the dough again and mix in the skipped onion.
  • Put the dough in a long form / roll and cut away parts with a knife and place them on the baking sheet and bake them brown at 170 degrees for about 30 - 35 minutes.
  • They taste best warm. But since I had 10 pieces, I packed 2 x 3 in bags and frozen ..... because I too want to enjoy Christmas in peace, not stand in the kitchen every day and "preparatory work" is half the battle 😉
  • Enjoy your meal
