Did you know....

that a bread I once considered "healthy" in my grocery has 43 ingredients, many of which I can't pronounce?  But this wonderful rustic potato bread only has 6 ingredients.  I am trying to get my family to eat more real and whole foods and less processed food. One small way I am doing that is by making my own whole wheat bread each week for the kids' sandwiches.  This bread is a welcome addition to my bread rotation, especially if I swap out the white flour with wheat flour.  For this recipe I did half white flour and half wheat flour, but when I make it again I would try all wheat flour.  I love that potatoes, skin and all, are incorporated into the bread.  When I make baked potatoes the skin (and nutrients) are left behind, so what a sneaky way to get them in some bread. I also loved the short rise time on this bread.  This bread is low maintence but high in taste and nutrition.  Sounds like a win, win, win for a busy mom!

I agree, this bread is going to be made often in my household too. It is great.
Good for you making your own bread weekly. And this one is so fast to make compared to others. It is nice to make something with so few ingredients and be soooo good!

I am impressed you make your own bread. I am trying to do that, but work and other things seem to get in the way of a regular schedule. But agree this loaf is very simple to make, so maybe it will get me in the bread baking habit?

Agreed, home-made is always best.

I wish I baked our own bread more often. Maybe I will after this recipe!

Six ingredients is an improvement over 43. There's nothing like home made. Great job on the bread!

If it has 43 ingredients is it really BREAD!! Home made is so much better and this one is so easy. I don't remember the last time I bought bread. Home made is so much better.
