  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

Method: 

Cook potatoes 20—25 minutes, until soft. Drain well. Mash potatoes with butter, cheese, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate until cold.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toast amaranth for 15 minutes, shaking pan occasionally to toast evenly. While amaranth is toasting, work flour into potatoes. Split potato mixture into six equal portions. Roll each portion into a 7 inch rope. Roll each rope in toasted amaranth, then form into a donut shape.

Place donuts on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake 12 minutes.
