Potato bread - remainder utilization


Preparation time: 10 min.
Cooking or baking time: 30 min.
Rest period: 1 hour
Total preparation time: 1 hr. 40 min.

Last time I had boiled potatoes left over (leftover), I made my beloved potato bread. Unfortunately, it was a little too few potatoes, so I added the missing amount with mashed potato powder.

In terms of taste, I could not tell the difference - and so I can often make potato bread, even if there are too few potatoes ...

My recipe from the potato bread


  • 300 g boiled potatoes
  • 600g of plain wheat flour (Type 550, the normal one)
  • 1 bag of dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 170 ml of warm water


  1. Grate the boiled potatoes or at least crush them with a fork, or otherwise crush them - ideally in the food processor, then there is little left to wash :-)
  2. Add the flour, yeast, beaten egg, oil, salt and the lukewarm water and knead well.
  3. Cover the dough and let it rest for about half an hour (this is best done in a steamer).
  4. Then knead the dough again, form into a round loaf and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and prick it several times with the fork, then let it go for another half hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200 ° C convection, the bread is baked for about 30 minutes.

I make my potato bread in the steamer (hot air + steam), I have already baked it in the box shape.

Additional tip: Mix with mashed potatoes powder

If z. B. only 150 g of potatoes are left, I've already replaced the rest by mashed potatoes powder (Püreeflocken).

According to my pack, for a bag containing 110 g of powder, my powder requires 500 ml of water and 200 ml of milk (ie 700 ml of liquid), giving 810 g of finished puree -> so if I only need 150 g of finished mass, I use 20 g Powder and 130 g of water.
