Irish Potato Bread
Irish Potato Bread… I was all over this recipe when I found it on Pinterest! Thank you Jo and Sue for a fantastic savory bread recipe that doesn’t have yeast in it! That’s right, no yeast, no proofing and no waiting for rise times. A quick ,fantastic potato bread recipe you can make and enjoy for dinner in no time at all. The potato in the bread makes this very soft and moist, it’s also very versatile. I added Parmesan Cheese and a little garlic powder to the batter, check out Jo and Sue’s version made with caraway seeds and chives! This is versatile enough that you can eat it without flavorings or experiment with different spices, cheeses and seeds to make a different bread each time you make it.
After the Irish Potato Bread was cooled I sliced a few pieces up for Paul and I to taste. He asked me if I could wrap it up so he could share it with his buddies! There went my bread and a stick of butter! You know he loved it, time to make more. Homemade goodness from our house to yours, ENJOY!

Run a butter knife around the edges of the pan to release the bread , remove from pan, place on a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
