If you’re like me, you love home cooked food, but time is limited. Really there is nothing quite like freshly baked bread right out of the oven. I very rarely have time to spend on kneeding the dough and waiting for it to rise. Thankfully, about 6-8 years ago my Mom gave me the gift of a bread machine. This machine has gotten so much use and it is still working great! I make my pizza dough in it, my pasta dough and I let it do all the hard work of preparing my bread dough. Personally I prefer oven-baked bread, so I always take the dough out of the machine after kneeding and rising, and shape it how I like and use my oven to bake it.
If you don’t have a bread machine, preparing bread dough is a great way to work out any frustrations you might be carrying. Otherwise, I’ve seen bread machines in pretty good shape in second hand stores lots, because I think for many that prefer to buy their bread, they tend to just take up shelf space and they get rid of them.
Anyway, all this to say that I found this awesome potato bread recipe that is super scrumptious. If you like bread then you’ll love this Potato Bread with a bowl of hot soup- perfect for a cold wintery day!
