Or maybe you would prefer Monkey Bread from Scratch?

2 pkg. dry yeast

1/2 c. warm water

1 c. sugar

1 c. shortening

1 tbsp. salt

1 c. mashed potatoes, cooled

1 c. warm milk

3 eggs, beaten

8 to 8 1/4 c. flour

3/4 c. butter, melted

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, shortening and salt. Add mashed potatoes, milk and eggs. Stir in flour gradually. Knead 8 to 10 minutes.
Cover dough and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size. Punch down. Divide dough in half. Grease 2 tube or Bundt pans.
Make small balls of dough and drop into pans in layers. Drizzle melted butter over each layer. Continue with dough balls until all of dough is used. Pans should be half full. Cover and let rise again until double.
Bake at 325°F for about 45 minutes or until done.
