Potato Bread

I know, we're turning into a bread-blog! This is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

1/2 cup water between 80-105 degrees
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp yeast
2 cups flour
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

Dissolve sugar in water and add yeast. Allow to proof for 5 minutes.
Combine flour, salt, oil, and potatoes in a bowl. Add yeast mixture. Stir ingredients until they hold together, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead and work in more flour until smooth and elastic, 10 minutes. Watch out, potato bread dough is extra sticky. Let your dough ball rise in an oiled bowl for 1 hour.
Once dough has risen, transfer to a greased and floured loaf pan. Let rise for another 45-60 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400. Dust bread with flour, and bake for 45 minutes. 
Potato bread. :)
