>Stuffed Potato Bread: filling, flavorful, and colorful. Ideal for serving with salads.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of potato water (the water that was used to boil the potato)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of dry yeast
  • 2 cups of white flour
  • ½ cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 cubed medium potato
  • Stuffing: besides the potato cubes, you can add a variety of other ingredients: sun dried tomatoes, olives, onion, broccoli, mushrooms, garlic, roasted bell pepper, rosemary, basil, flax and/or poppy seeds, etc.

In a small pot boil the potato until is fully cooked but firm. The water left from boiling the potato will be the water you will use for the bread dough.

In a large bowl or bread maker, mix the water, sugar and yeast and let sit for a few minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt and start mixing with a wooden spoon. Knead the dough for a few minutes, then place it in the bowl, cover it with a towel, and let it rest for an hour in a warm place.

If you have a bread machine, place all the ingredients in the special container and choose the ‘dough’ program. This will take care of the mixing, kneading, and first rising steps.

While the dough is resting, you can prepare your stuffing. I used some diced white and green onions, minced garlic, sliced kalamata olives, and diced red bell pepper.

Once the dough has rested for an hour, sprinkle some flour in a clean dry surface and place the dough on it.  Knead the dough for a few more minutes and flatten the dough with a rolling pin.  Stick the potato cubes and the other ingredients you have prepared in it and rolled the dough.

Oil a baking pan or cookie sheet and place your dough roll on it. Cover again and let rest for another hour in a warm place.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. You can paint the top of the bread with olive oil and sprinkle with poppy or flax seed. Bake for about 25 minutes. Serve warm with any salad of your choice!
