Overnight Potato Bread Made Easy

What do you do with those left over mashed potatoes? You make potato bread of course or you could make potato soup but that’s another idea for the next time you have leftover mashed potatoes.

1 cup leftover mashed potatoes, 2 cups milk, 2 T unsalted butter, 2 Tablespoons sugar, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 package rapid-rise yeast, and 5 cups King Arthur flour.

In a medium sauce pan heat up the mashed potatoes, milk, butter, sugar, and salt until it reaches 108 degrees. Add 2 cups of flour and the yeast and stir or use mixer with bread attachment. Add the next three cups of flour until well blended and knead 8 minutes. Put into a greased bowl and make sure to rotate bottom to top so the dough doesn’t stick to the plastic wrap your going to cover it with before you put it in the refrigerator overnight. 8 – 12 hours later take the bread bowl out of the refrigerator and divide in half placing each in a buttered bread pan. Let the loaves double in size then place them in a preheated 350 degree over for 35- 40 minutes and the temperature is 190 degrees inside or sounds hollow when you tap the tops. Remove the loaves in 5 minutes and let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy! Freeze one to enjoy another day if you can which is very hard to do because this potato bread is delicious.

Our Cocooning World

Follow Him

Our Cocooning World            101 Days to Jesus

Gospel                         Matthew 6:7-15

Jesus said to his disciples:
“In praying, do not babble like the pagans,
who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them.
Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This is how you are to pray:

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

“If you forgive men their transgressions,
your heavenly Father will forgive you.
But if you do not forgive men,
neither will your Father forgive your transgressions.”

Tuesday of the Third Week of Easter

Based on John 6:30-35.   The humongous crowd said to Jesus:  “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?  What can  you do?  Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:  He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”

Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.  For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

They said to Jesus, “Sir, give us this bread always.”

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”Image
