I make a dozen loaves of this bread every year for our churches chili and chowder luncheon and I have had many requests for the recipe. The potato keep the bread moist and it has a lovely texture.
1 medium potato,cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/4cup butter(or hard margarine)
1/4cup granulated sugar
1 envelope (or 2 1/4tsp)active dry yeast
3 1/2cups All-purpose flour
2tsp salt
1 1/2cups(Approximately)All-purpose flour
Cook potato in water and salt in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes until very tender.Drain. Mash well or press through potato ricer or food mill into a medium bowl. Cover to keep warm.

Combine next three ingredients in small saucepan,heat and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissloved and butter is almost melted. Pour into extra-large bowl. Stir until butter is melted. Let stand 5 minutes.

Sprinkle yeast over top. let stand 10 minutes.Stir until yeast is dissolved. Add first amount of flour,salt and potato, mix until soft dough forms. Work in enough of remaining flour until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl and is no longer sticky. turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead for 5 to 10 minutes, adding flour if necessary to prvent sticking and dough becomes smooth and elastic. Place in large greased bowl,turning once to grease the top. cover with greased waxedpaper and a tea towel. Let stand in oven with the light on and the door closed for about 1 hour until doubled in size.

Punch down,turn out onto lightly floured surface, knead for 1 minute.Divide into 2 equal portions.

Flatten 1 portion of the dough into a rectangle,roll up tightly tucking in ends and stretching if necessary to fit the pan.Place seam side down in 9x5x3inch loaf pan.

Cover with greased waxpaper and tea towel.Repeat with remaining dough. Let loaves stand in oven with light on and door closed for 1 hour or until dough rises to top of the pan. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 10 minutes,reduce temperature to 375F and bake for 20 mintues or until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped. Let stand in pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool.
