Potato Bread with Chives Secret Recipe Club



I am so excited to be part of Secret Recipe Club this month.  I have been waiting for my blog to be old enough to be able to join.  I was assigned Paulchen's Food Blog.  Paulchen makes the most amazing looking bread!  I must admit I was a little intimidated when I first started looking around.  I don't have the best track record with yeast and kneading.  But I was excited to take on the challenge!  I picked Potato Bread with Chives.  I have had potato bread before, but never made it.  Never even dawned on me to make it.  My husband was excited this would mean he could get mashed potatoes one night too!

As Paulchen said, the chives kind of disappear in this bread.  We joked that the yeast ate them :)  I was going to try rosemary after reading her review, but my husband wasn't huge on that idea.  The bread was light and airy.  It was great warm out of the oven, and toasted with butter later.  My 6 year old says he thinks it is the best bread I have ever made!


Potato Bread With Chives
Recipe from Paulchen's Food Blog
Printable Recipe


2 1/4 tsp (1 packet) active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar or pure maple syrup
2 Tb corn oil
2 tsp salt
1 cup cold mashed potatos
1 cup soy milk or other dairy free milk (I used regular milk)
5 cups unbleached all purpose flour, plus more for kneading
2 Tb minced fresh chives
In a large bowl, combine the yeast and 1/4 cup of the water. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes, then stir in the remaining 3/4 cup of water, the corn oil and the salt. Mix in the potatos, then stir in the soy milk. Add about half the flour, stirring to combine, then work in the remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Transfer to a lightly floured board.

Lightly flour your hands and work surface. Knead the dough well until it is smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes, using more flour as necessary so the dough does not stick. Place in a large lightly oiled bowl and turn over once to coat with oil. Cover with a clean kitchen towel or lightly oiled piece of plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1 to 2 hours.

Meanwhile, lightly oil a large baking sheet and set aside. Punch the dough down and knead lightly. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, sprinkle with the chives, and knead until the dough is elastic and the chives are well distributed, 3 to 5 minutes. Shape the dough into one large or two small round loaves and place on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten slightly and cover with a clean damp towel or lightly oiled plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place and let rise again until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 400′F. Use a sharp knife to cut an X into the top of the loaf or loaves. Bake on the center oven rack until golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes, depending on size. Tap on the bottom of the loaf or loaves – if they sound hollow, the bread is done. Remove from the sheet and let cool slightly on a wire rack before slicing.

Funny, I've never thought of making potato bread either. Your loaf came out so well, I may have to rethink that!

I had potato bread a little while ago and I loved it. Been looking for a recipe for ages and chives sound like a brilliant addition! I'll have to remember this for when I have a little more time.

I've had potato bread dozens of times, but it never dawned on me either to make it myself! You've inspired me!

This bread looks amazing! I have never had potato bread, but I'm definitely intrigued. I will muster up the courage to work with yeast yet! Thanks for the recipe.

Very pretty..I'm in Group C, so I won't be posting for another couple of weeks! I think potato bread is extra soft...and chives sound like a fantastic addition.

I truly admire that you keep challenging and doing the secret recipe club! Your potato bread looks amazing!!! The combination of potato and chives sounds so good! Love the look of bread too. I'm a big bread fan and it'll be gone in a minute in my house (consumed by ME!). I hope your son is better now. :-)

Fabulous!!!! I have the same challenges with bread. I just made a sourdough recently and it was the first one that actually turned out well. It's such a great feeling of accomplishment. Your potato bread looks fantastic and I think the rosemary is a delicious idea! I'd be all over that. :)

Mashed potato in bread is my idea of heaven! It looks nicely risen too. I don't have the best of luck with yeast but you've given me a bit of a shove to try again!! Congrats on Top 9!!

This look so awesome! I love to make my own bread, and this looks like a great recipe. With the cool weather coming, it's the perfect time to have fresh bread baking in the oven.
