"This bread makes wonderful sandwiches. It doesn't crumble when slicing, even when warm. Cooking times are approximate as times vary with different bread machines."

"The bread turned out wonderfully. I followed the recipe exactly. Like any bread, it was the most "heavenly" when it was still warm. My husband is so sold on this recipe, he's asked me to start making it all the time and to stop using store bought bread altogether!"
"Great loaf of bread! I made 2 loaves. One on the dough setting in the bread machine and the other with the kitchen aid. I baked both loaves at 350* for 30 minutes. The one made in the bread machine turned out to be a high-riser and looks and tastes wonderful. The one with the kitchen aid didn't rise as high (I should have left it to rise higher) and it is obvious denser. It will make good toast. Thanks for sharing this great recipe."
"This bread was awesome! I made it twice, the first time as is and used the regular cycle in the breadmaker & turned out perfect. The second time I tried to cheat and did not work, the rapid baking cycle and this recipe do not jive apparently :) Thx for a keeper..."
"Yummy!!! I made it in the bread machine but added too much yeast the first time. Those packets have 2 1/4 tsp and I just dumped it in not realizing it was too much and the top collapsed and it looked like a sad loaf but was still tasty. Used the correct amount the second time and it looks better but still tastes great! Really good when the edges are crunchy! I am amazed what a little potato can do for bread. Thanks for sharing!!"
"This turns out a great loaf! I make it on dough cycle then knead it a bit and shape it ... let it rise an hour then bake at 375 for about 35 minutes. I really like the texture for sandwiches. I've also been using canola oil instead of butter only because I try not to eat too much butter."
"Great wheat bread recipe. We just ate it with butter, but I can see where it would make good sandwiches. Light, but not TOO light with a great wheat flavor."
"Excellent bread with a wonderful texture. A definite keeper! Update 6/13/09 This has become one of my favorite bread recipes. I can always count on it coming out soft and fluffy and downright delicious! It stays nice for days, unlike so many ww breads. I prefer to bake it in two smaller loaf pans at 375 for about 35 minutes."
"WOW great bread. Love it for toast in the mornings."
"This is definitely heavenly! It disappears quickly because it is so light and flavorful. It may be the best loaf I've made with my machine. I do take mine out after the dough cycle, let it rise 35 minutes, and bake at 375F for 30 minutes."
"Tried this recipe twice, and both times, it turned out horribly. I have been making bread for 10 years, and I just can't figure this one out."
"Was everything you said it would be.Thankyou so much."
"Made this yesterday. (apparently my book disappeared so I came looking for recipes and this is the one I choose) I made as directed except... I replaced 1/2 c. of the whole wheat with 1/2 c. of rye. Everyone enjoyed. Family in town for the holidays and saw someone grab last piece around 6 this morning. great recipe. Flavor, smell and texture great"
"This is the best potato bread my family has ever tried. I can not make it fast enough before it is all gone. I changed a few ingredients. I used all bread flour (no whole wheat flour) and I used potato water (left over from making potato salad). I also do not like to bake my bread in the bread machine so I put mine on manual and then I transfer the dough to a greased bread pan let rise 1/2 hour to an hour and then bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes."
"Made for your Football Pool win & I love this recipe! Made essentially as written in my ABM, my only disappointment was that the loaf was smaller than I expected .. but still a good size for toast, sammies, etc. I challenged the recipe in every way possible & it met every test. I was well into combining the dry ingredients when I saw the dry instant mashed potato flakes I planned to use were actually the powder variety vs flakes. I had no clue if I should adjust for this, but it made sense more moisture would be needed - so I guessed & added 1 extra tbsp of water. While still warm from the ABM, I sliced the entire loaf. The texture is ideal & the slices were perfectly uniform w/no loss of shape, crust or crumb. While a potato flavour is not at all obvious, the taste is clearly superior to all "unflavoured" breads I've made. Congrats on your FB Pool win & thx for sharing this truly heavenly bread recipe w/us. :-)"
"Bread tasted wonderful! I wish the load was bigger, but there is always another loaf! Perfect size for sandwiches, my 4 year old even loved it. Great way to make wheat without vital wheat gluten. Soft and delicious, it is not crumbly at all. Very highly recommended."
"Superb loaf of bread. Wonderful in every way-texture, flavor, and it doesn't crumble when you slice it (amazing). Thanks for providing such a great recipe. Enjoyed with a hearty bowl of vegetable soup. Yum."
"By far the best wheat bread that's come out of my machine... wonderfully soft and delicious!!"
"I baked this recipe both in my breadmachine and in my oven after using the dough setting on my bread machine. Neither loaf turned out well despite my following the directions to the letter. Neither loaf raised up where it should've. The loafs tasted fine altho somewhat dense. I had to bake the loaf in my oven for 45 minutes to get it up to temperature. Because of it's taste I gave it 3 stars. Wish it had raised like it should. I used all fresh ingredients including my yeast. This is one recipe I won't be making again."
"Everything Bayhill says about this bread recipe is true. Smells great while baking, and tastes delicious."
"I just finished baking this bread and it smells so good! I did not bake mine in the bread machine since I like it better from the oven. The only changes I made were to use brown sugar in place of white and oil in place of the butter. It has a nice flavor, but I wish I would have let it cool all the way before I sliced into it. It is going to make great toast!"
