Tuscan herb mashed potato bread machine bread recipe

How’s that for a long title?

I realize this bread is going to be difficult to replicate as your mashed potatoes won’t taste exactly like mine, however, I think you will still be able to make a tasty approximation. The leftover mashed potatoes I used had been made with the aforementioned Tuscan olive oil goodness, as well as loads of butter, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Just FYI for any adjustments you may want to make.

In bread machine bucket, layer:

3/4 cup leftover mashed potatoes

3/4 cup milk (If you have dry mashed potatoes, you may want to add an additional tablespoon or two)

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons tuscan herb olive oil (use EVOO and add additional pasta seasonings if you can’t find an approximation of this oil)

1.5 tsp. salt (use more if you have nonsalty mashed potatoes, or less if really salty mashed potatoes)

2 tsp. pasta herb mix (If you don’t have this, try 1 tsp. basil and 1 tsp. oregano)

1/2 tsp. garlic

2 tablespoons sugar

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons yeast


Choose basic bread setting, with regular crust. When loaf comes out and is still hot, brush 2 tbsp melted butter over crust. Serve while warm for extra deliciousness.

    Mash potatoes in a bread? Wow! This is a new idea for me. Do you have photos? I’m very curious as to how this looks once it’s baked )

    I have been bad about photos as of late – I apologize. I will aim to do better and definitely post a pic next time I make this! It looks like normal bread but much denser.
