How to Make Potato Olive Bread


  1. Dissolve sugar into warm milk. Add yeast and let it set 1o minutes until frothy.
  2. Mix mashed potatoes and flour in a large bowl.
  3. Into large mixing bowl, add frothy yeast mixture and water. Form into a fairly firm dough.
  4. If using Kitchen-aid mixer, put on bread hook. Add flour and knead bread with hook for 4-8 minutes. If kneading by hand, turn onto floured counter top and knead for 10 minutes.
  5. When dough is smooth and even, place it in an open gallon ziploc with about 1 T. olive oil inside. Leave in oiled bag in warm place until dough doubles in size.
  6. Knead olive tapenade (or diced olives) into dough, then shape into loaves. Oil bottom of loaf pans. Allow dough to rest and rise in pans for 20-30 minutes or until it reaches top of pan.
  7. Bake in oven (preheated to 425 degrees F) for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Cool on wire rack and enjoy! It is great dipped in olive oil!
