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 :)

An excellent loaf of bread! I used fresh mashed potatoes and 1 clove of garlic, which worked fine .. I love potato bread, the bread texture is great and it also rises very high .. thank you!!

This tastes amazing! I don't own a bread machine, so I followed the instructions of the previous comment and it turned out beautifully (uploaded a photo). I also used real mashed potatoes and used bread pans. I will be making this again!

Good recipe, good bread. I used ABM on dough cycle, then shaped two round loaves, egg white wash, slashed. After 2nd rise, baked at 375 for 25 min. Perfect! Tx for posting.

A good tasting, moist bread. I think it will keep very well, if it lasts. We're already through half the loaf. I forgot to put in the garlic powder, so I sprinkled the loaf with nigella seeds before popping into the oven. Sesame or poppy seeds would also be good. I used only the dough cycle and baked in the oven.

Wow- I am so happy that I got a bread machine & started expiermenting with it!! I keep finding great recipes and think I will stick with just one but then I see something else to make and I love variety- thanks for the recipe- I usually make them exact the first time around for the review but I had no instant potatoes so I used real & I also used jar minced garlic as that is also what I had--yummy!!!

Great recipe, however it was a little bland. The garlic was more of an aftertaste. But, like I said, it's still a great recipe!
