Adapted for a bread machine
Yield: 1 loaf
3 1/2 c. bread flour
1 c. mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled to 80 degrees
1/4 c. whole milk, room temperature
1/3 c. warm water (80 degrees)
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Use a cooking thermometer to check the temperature of the water and butter. Place ingredients in the bread machine pan. The order will depend on your machine's instructions. I start with wet ingredients, then I add the dry. The yeast goes on top (the very last ingredient). Start the machine.
When the baking cycle ends, remove the bread from the pan and cool on a rack. Brush rosemary butter over the top and sides of the bread. Sprinkle with sea salt.
1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
Add chopped rosemary and a pinch of sea salt to butter. Blend.
Slather on warm potato bread.
