Heart Attack Potato Bread

I had some leftover Heart Attack Potatoes, and needed to do something with them (other than feed them to Thor, who had had enough). So, into the bread they went!


1-1/2 cups warm water
6 tsp yeast

6 tsp gluten powder
3-1/2 cups flour
3 tbsp powdered milk
1 cup pureed Heart Attack Potatoes, skins still in the potatoes
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt

Put the water in your mixing bowl, and sprinkle the yeast over it. Add the
flour and remainder of the ingredients, and mix according to my Bread Tutorial instructions. Note that you may need more flour, depending upon how moist your potatoes were. Add it 1/4 cup at a time, if necessary. Let the dough rest 15 minutes after the first kneading, then knead another 5 minutes. Divide the dough in half; it will be very soft, and will need to be scooped into the bread pans. Let the loaves rise until about doubled in size, then bake at 350F for glass pans or 375F for metal pans, about 22 to 25 minutes.
This bread was very moist and flavorful, and made excellent grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch the next day. Of course, my grilled cheese sandwiches always include tomatoes; it's much more flavorful that way!

I don't think I've had bread with potatoes in it but it sure looks good. Bev's the same way with grilled cheese or almost all sandwiches - tomatoes required.

any of your recipes that have the phrase "heart attack" in them I instantly know I want seconds at the very least.

Oh Marjie I want to bake this bread ever so badly. Please don't laugh but what in the world is gluten powder? I think I need that bread tutorial link again.

I have a feeling it may not stop snowing until I bake bread as I promised blog visitors I would. Help!!!

I love tomatoes in my grilled cheese too. What I would give for a big loaf of this bread!!

I really like the look of the grilled sandwiches - I also like tomatoes in my grilled cheese sammies, and onions too if I'm by myself!

Hmmm - you and your bread making again. I have added tomatoes to the grilled cheese for years - love it! Sometimes, I even dip my grilled cheese into salsa. :) g
