Potato-Oatmeal Bread

This definitely is NOT your run of the mill dreaded (by my Honey) mamby pamby white bread.

Potato-Oatmeal Bread

1 cup mashed spuds (room temp at least)

2 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup warm water

1 Tbsp yeast

2 Tbsp sugar plus a little

1 1/2 cup warm milk

1 Tbsp salt

1 1/2 cup oatmeal

5 cups flour  (2 whole wheat, 3 All purpose)

Proof the yeast in warm water with a little sugar.  When bubbly, add to the rest of the ingredients…minus 3 cups of flour… in the mixing bowl and knead till combined.  Add the remaining flour one cup at a time and knead until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  Transfer to a lightly greased bowl and cover and let rise until double.  Punch down and form into two loaves.  Let rise again and then bake for 10 minutes at 425, then knock down the oven temp to 350 and bake till the loaves make that hollow sound when you thump the….about 35-40 minutes.  remove from pans and cool on a wire rack and enjoy!!!!!

About the spuds…..It is a rare occurrence around here when we have left over mashed taters.  We are in Idaho ya know.  And yesterday was no exception.  I made some instant and added the butter to them.  Seemed to work fine.   I will be interested to see if real vs instant makes any difference, because this is a keeper recipe.
