Thanksgiving Leftovers: Mashed Potato Bread
(Makes one loaf)
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup milk (or substitute almond/soy/ or rice milk)
3 Tbsp. butter (or non-dairy spread)
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour
1/2 cup water
Any mashed potato recipe will work for this bread. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the flour and water. Mix well. Slowly add in the flour and water until the dough begins to lump in a ball in the bowl.
On a floured surface, knead the dough for about 5 minutes, This is to activating the yeast, so try to move every part of the dough as you knead.
Let the dough rise in a covered bowl for 30 minutes, or until it doubles in size.
Gently punch the air from the risen dough, and form into a rectangle. Grease a 9x5 pan lightly, and fold the dough over at the sides until it fits into the pan. Bake at 350˚F / 177˚C
for about 45 minutes.
Let the bread cool for 20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
