Sourdough Potato Bread


Do you ever find something in your fridge and go “What on earth is that?!”, and realise it’s a piece of something that left ages ago thinking I might ear or use that…

Well, that happened to me the other day. I found a ball of something in a foil. I opened it very carefully (yeah, just in case it explode…) It was…. a… Jacket potato that I cooked for.. CHRISTMAS! Hum, that’s like history now. Anyway, it was still totally fine so decided to make a potato bread with it.


Starter 125g
Strong flour 250
Potato (cooked and mashed) 100g
Milk 170-180g
Salt 4g
Olive oil 1tbsp

(Sigh up for the mailing list for the full recipe)

You might need to adjust the amount of milk depending on how moist your potato is. I mixed the flour and mashed up potato before adding the rest of the ingredients so that I know ho moist the dough is.

The potato gave the bread nice moisture and springy texture. And, it tasted savoury with a hint of sweetness from the potato. Hum, I liked it!


We had some with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and rest as sandwich…


I knew the potato bread would work perfect, and sure it did! My Christmas leftover did a great job. ;D
