Potato Bread

The things I have done to get rid of my turkey day leftovers this year .... but this bread was amazing and I will probably be making extra mashed potatoes on purpose now just to make more bread.

1 cup milk
2 TBSP butter
1 TBSP raw sugar
1/2 TBSP salt
1/4 cup warm water
2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
4-6 cups flour

In a small saucepan, melt butter, sugar and salt into milk over low temperature. Let cool to room temperature.

Mix yeast and warm water in mixer bowl and add milk mixture. Stir to combine, and add potatoes and 2 cups flour. Mix with dough hook (or hands) until combined, adding in 1/2 cup remaining flour at a time until dough is smooth and elastic and clings to itself.

Spray bowl with cooking spray or lightly oil and set in a warm place, covered with a towel, until doubled in bulk.

Knead in mixer bowl or with hands on a floured surface, shape into a loaf, and let rise in lightly greased loaf pan until doubled.

Bake 1 hour at 350 until well browned. Serve as is, toasted, or in grilled panini sandwiches.
