this bread makes great grilled cheese sandwiches, and tastes great with melted butter
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 4 cups bread flour
- 2⁄3 cup instant mashed potatoes (from a box)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder, to taste
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- add all ingredients to bread machine, in this order.
- cook on basic cycle.
- note---- if you're going to make a smaller loaf you need an extra 1/4 tsp of yeast.
This bread was amazing! I made it by hand and did a few things differently according to what I had on hand. First I put the warm water and yeast in a large bowl. I then added all the rest of the ingredients, but only about half the flour. I used all purpose flour, real mashed potatoes and garlic salt instead of salt and garlic powder. I added enough flour to make it really soft and pliable, kneaded for about 6-8 minutes, and let it rise covered with plastic wrap for 1 hour. Punched it down, shaped it into two loaves and let it rise another 35 minutes till doubled. Then baked it at 375 for 25 minutes. Best bread I've had in a long time, and it did indeed make fantastic grilled cheese sandwiches. I'm making my second batch tonight for more grilled cheese :)
