Ingredients
  • 13 ounces baking potatoes

  • 4 1/2 Cups unbleached white flour or as needed
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Notes
* Note: Insert a metal or wooden skewer to the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, with no residual dough, the bread is done.
