Silvie's Potato Pie - Potato Pancake

There is nothing more comforting than a big pile of potato pies. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I learned this recipe from my granny Szilvi.

10 medium potatoes
4 tablespoon oil
Black pepper

750 g flour plus extra for kneading (5 cups)
25 g fresh yeast or 1/2 tablespoon dry yeast
400 ml warm water
4 tablespoon oil
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

Boil potatoes in salted water until fork tender. Drain and mash the potatoes adding the oil, salt and black pepper. Let it cool and divide into 10 equal pieces.

Dissolve sugar in 1/4 cup warm water and add the yeast. In ten minutes the yeast should have dissolved and become a sludgy, frothy liquid. 
In large bowl put the flour, add the yeast mixture and mix well.
Add the rest of the warm water, oil, salt and knead for about 5 minutes until the dough is soft and moist.
Lightly flour the bowl and put the dough in it, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest 1 hour, in warm place.

Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it. 
Using just enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to the work surface or to your fingers, gently shape it into a log. Cut it in 10 equal pieces.

Shape each into a ball and let them rise 10 more minutes onto a floured surface.

Roll out the raised dough and put the mashed potatoes in the center.

Fold the dough over the filling than roll it again. Make a little hole in the center.

Brush your pan with oil, put the pie in the pan and brush the pie with oil. Cook on medium high heat for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Flip over and cook for another 3 minutes.
Enjoy it!
