Tuesdays With Dorie: Rustic Potato Loaves
As you can see from the photo, not all potato bread is created equal. Personally, I like the crusty, toothsome version. While I buy the spongy, soft variety (white only, never the "whole wheat" variety), it is not what I consume. (If you are sensing a parent-child tug-of-war here, you would definitely be heading down the right track.)
Clearly, I didn't quite get the torpedo-shaped loaves that the recipe was directing me toward, but that's OK. I'm really happy with this bread. It took longer to bake than I was expecting, but that also was fine. The texture of these loaves was excellent, and I think this is the first rustic-style bread I've ever made that developed a crust worthy of the label "rustic." I also think that this might be my favorite bread recipe from TWD so far.
