– 1 medium potato – 3/4 cup warm milk – 2 1/4 tsp yeast – 1 tbsp sugar – 1 egg – 1 tsp salt – 1 tbsp parsley (more or less to taste) – optional – 2 cups flour – mozzarella cheese
The very start of this recipe is to boil, or steam, a medium-sized potato. Once you have cooked your potato add it to a mixing bowl. Add in warm milk and mash away!
Add in your yeast, sugar, parsley if you so choose to add it, an egg, and salt. Mix everything together. It’s going to look like very wet, gooey mashed potatoes. Nothing that you want to eat. Mix in flour.
Set aside your bowl covered, in a warm place for two hours, or until the dough has doubled in size. Potato in the dough helps to activate the yeast, so this shouldn’t be a problem.
Spread in a greased 9×9 pan. Or in a bread pan. Place slices of cheese into the dough. Bake in the oven preheated to 350 for 30 minutes.
This bread is delicious as it is. It is amazing with some garlic butter spread on it, which is what led me to put garlic in it.
