“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. I used to make this bread for special family brunches with my mother when I was just learning to cook. But our original recipe required us to first peel, boil, and mash the potatoes. As a busy mom, I just didn't have the time to do that so I was delighted to find that the bread is as good OR BETTER when made with the super-convenient Simply Potatoes mashed potatoes!”
