Potato Bread

If you’ve ever tried potato bread, you know that the addition of mashed potatoes makes for some nice, soft bread and, unlike a lot of homemade breads, these loaves stay soft for a surprising number of days. A big thanks to the Frugal Girl for letting us showcase this recipe and her beautiful photography.
