Cheese and Potato Bread
This was a very easy and tasty bread to make that I got from my cookbook called, "Potatoes" too. I love the rosemary and Swiss cheese combination in this recipe..
- 1 c
- diced mealy potatoes
- 7 g active dry yeast
- 5 c
- white bread flour
- 2 c
- vegetable bouillon
- garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 Tbsp
- chopped rosemary
- 1/4 c
- gragted swiss cheese
- 1 Tbsp
- vegetable oil
- 1 Tbsp
1Light grease and flour a baking sheet. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes, or umtil soft. Drain and mash.
2Transfer the mashed potatloes to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the yeast, flour, and bouillon, and mix to forn a smooth dough. Add garlic, rosemary, and 3/4 of the cheese and knead the dough for 5 minutes. Make a hollow in the dough, then pour in the oil, add the salt, and knead the dough again.
3Cover the dough and leave it to rise in a warm place for 1 1/12 hours, or until doubled in size.
4Knead the dough again, and divide it into 3 equal portions. Roll each portion into a sausage about 14 inches/35 cm long.
5Press one end of the braids together, then carefully braid the dough, without breaking it, and fold the remaining ends, under, sealing them firmly.
6Pllace the braid on the baking sheet, cover and leave to rise for 30 minutes.
7Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the loaf. Cook in a preheated oven for 40 minutes of until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow at 375F/190C.
