I was at the Prepared Pantry website and noticed an interesting bread mix, fully loaded potato bread. It’s a mix for potato bread that contains sour cream, chives and bacon bits.
I had to try it!
You can spot all the added goodies when you first open the package. I took a whiff and smelled spices and dried vegetables.
I added the ingredients from the mix to the bread pan. I used the basic setting with medium crust.
Note that I had to provide butter and water.
The instructions on the package call for water that’s exactly 80 degrees. I use a Zojirushi bread machine. The bread cycle includes time for preheating. So I just used water from the tap and didn’t worry about the water temperature.
If your machine doesn’t have a preheat cycle though, I’d recommend that you follow the directions on the package.
Even with a bread mix, I recommend looking at the bread dough a few minutes after it starts kneading. Make sure that the dough has formed into a nice ball shape. That was the case here. No adjustments were necessary.
The bread smelled amazingly good as it cooked.
The finished product looked great and had a nice texture.
How did it taste?
The Man of the House adored it!
I liked fully loaded baked potato bread a lot. I thought it was a little on the salty side, but still very good. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to order this again. It just falls a little short of perfection because of the salt issue.
