Au Gratin Potato Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

This is a very rich bread with a distinct potato flavor.  As an added feature we’ve topped it with thin slices of potato to signal the nature of the bread.  It’s a bread that was always popular in Europe from Ireland to France to Poland.  It’s easy to make in your bread machine from start to finish. 

INGREDIENTS:
 ¾ cup of heavy whipping cream (milk can be substituted) (110° F./ 43° C.)
 ½ cup of water (110° F./ 43° C.)
 1 ½ tablespoons of melted butter
 1 cup of mashed potatoes
 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
 1 ½ tablespoons of sugar
 1 cup of shredded cheese (your choice on the cheese)
 ¼ cup of diced onion
 3 cups of bread flour
 1 ½ teaspoons of yeast
 ½ cup of thinly sliced potatoes for topping
 1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water whisked for glazing
 Herbs like black pepper and parsley sprinkles for final topping
