Kind of like corn bread but with potato's. I don't know how else to describe it.

This is a great "bread" with so many possible variations! The potatoes make it so dense and filling that it's more of a side dish than simply a bread. I served it with beef that had a spicy gravy and it was a perfect accompaniment. I think it would also be great with a layer of cheddar between the potato part and the biscuit patty and served for breakfast with scrambled eggs. All in all a great recipe that I will use again!

  11. Press dough patty onto potato mixture.
  12. Using a knife, mark top of dough into six wedges similar to pie slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the dough.
