This bread features delicious russet potatoes produced in our state. We often enjoy one loaf right away and freeze the other to have later.

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes (without added milk or butter)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6-1/4 to 6-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, potatoes, bacon, butter, eggs, sugar, onion, caraway seeds, garlic salt, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape each into a round loaf. Place in two greased 2-qt. baking dishes with straight sides. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking dishes to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves.
