Potato, Cheese and Onion Crusty Bread
« on: March 11, 2016, 11:50:52 am »
Hey folks, I retired from work last week so I figured it was time to get back to smoking and cooking.  Today I thought I'd try my hand at making some potato bread, I hadn't tried that before and couldn't find any advice on this forum either.

It came out great, this one's a keeper.  I used the basic no knead recipe for the crusty bread and added 1 cup of mashed potatoes, used the potato water, about a cup of smoked Balderson cheddar and some chopped onion greens.  The house smells great.  Now, on to create something with the smoker...

I have never tasted a potato, cheese and onion bread.......but it sure sounds tasty from the title.  Was the crusty bread recipe from the Si Fumar post?  I have made her bread recipe and it is delicious.

Thanks guys for the well wishes, it's only been a short time but I would recommend it if you can do it, good for your well being.

Yes, I used Si Fumar's recipe for the no knead crusty bread, I had never baked bread before I found that recipe, but it's so easy even I can make great bread.

I added all the ingredients at the initial stage, flour, water, potatoes, cheese, everything. This was a good bread, its probably moister than moist breads because of the mashed potatoes but it toasts up perfectly. A bit denser than your normal crusty bread too. It's good though.
