This bread is wonderful! The potato water makes the loaf soft and tall, and the herb spiral is very pretty! Potato water is water that is used to boil potatoes in .. You can use letover mashed potatoes for this, just make sure they are at room temperature .. This is my own recipe and I love it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cool potato water to 80°F, if using water then heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  2. Add bread ingredients to the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Set Cycle: Dough, Size: 2 lb.
  4. After about 5 minutes, check the consistency of the dough; if the dough is too dry add a tablespoon of water at a time, if too wet add a tablespoon of flour at a time, until the dough is smooth and slightly sticky when you press it.
  5. Prepare the herb mixture: melt the butter in a saucepan, add the garlic, green onions and parsley, and cook for 2 or 3 minutes; cool completely.
  6. Spray two 9x5 inch pans with cooking spray, preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. When the cycle is finished, take the dough out and knead to remove large air pockets.
  8. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 11x24 inch rectangle, spread with herb mixture, leaving about 2 inches at one of the 11 inch ends.
  9. Roll bread dough from the other end, pinch closed.
  10. Cut dough in half, place in prepared pans seam side down; leave to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  11. Bake until browned, about 30 minutes.

This was easily made without a machine. I did just used milk in place of the potato water and milk powder, and it worked out fine. I used rosemary and garlic in the spiral. Yum!

INCREDIBLE!!! I mad this bread for the first time last night, and it came out perfectly! It was so easy to make and is so moist and delicious. I used the frozen cubes of minced garlic in the filling and it was great!
