Directions:

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water, stir in the sugar and salt. Beat in the potatoes, butter, and 3 1/2 c. of the flour.; work together until smooth, approximately 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, invert the dough, and let rise for 1 hour, or until the dough is doubled in bulk. Punch down the dough, wait 15 minutes to relax the gluten in the flour, then turn onto a floured board. Divide the dough in half and shape into two loaves. Place in 2 greased 9x5-inch bread pans. Let rise until dough doubles in bulk. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Cool before slicing into thick pieces. Makes 2 loaves.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This dense, hearty bread is perfect for thick sandwiches. The water in which the potatoes cook adds flavor and improves the bread's texture.
I have gotten familiar with this recipe again because it can be edited to be gluten free.
