Potato Bread is a pillowy soft white bread loaf. You’re going to want to eat this with everything. Plus, it’s totally stress free to bake.
I finally got to have my Thanksgiving dinner this past weekend with some of the most supportive and lovely friends a person could ever hope for. They were the perfect audience for a dinner party. They gushed about absolutely every recipe, helped with the dishes, and even took home some leftover cheesecake.
I knew they’d like the food. I’ve honed my Thanksgiving meal for a few years, and I know it’s solid. What I didn’t expect was how much they absolutely adored the Rosemary Potato Rolls. One friend even said they were the best thing she’d ever eaten. I mean, they’re really awesome, but I didn’t expect a humble dinner roll to make such a big impression.
Well, today I’ve got a whole loaf of Potato Bread, and it’s going to make you very happy. At least if you’re a lover of soft pillowy bread, you’ll be in love. This loaf is a bit more dense than a standard white loaf, but it’s more moist as well. I just love it.
There’s nothing too terribly tricky about this bread. It is a bit stickier than the bloomer we made last month, but the good news is, you can do your initial kneading in your stand mixer if you have one. I also bake this in a loaf pan, so you don’t have to stress out about shaping your dough. Oh, and if you want to use instant mashed potatoes, that’s totally fine. There’s nothing better than low-stress delicious food.
Making your own bread might seem silly when you can easily buy it at any shop, but you can’t buy totally awesome Potato Bread made with your own hands. Is bread baking self-care? It is now. And it’ awesome.
