This is one I haven’t tried yet, but I think I will before St. Patrick’s Day. It sure looks good!

Original recipe found here:
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup Milk, warm
  • 1 package (1/4 oz) Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 1½ cups Mashed Potatoes {About 3 large potatoes, boiled and mashed.}
  • 4 cups Flour, plus more for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. STEP 2 In a mixing bowl or your stand mixer combine the warm milk, yeast, and honey. Let stand for 15 minutes until mixture looks foamy and puffed. Add the mashed potatoes and salt and combine. Slowly start incorporating the flour, one cup at a time. Mixture will be tacky and elastic looking. If too wet add a little more flour.
  3. STEP 3 Knead dough for 10 minutes. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead by hand for few minutes. In a separate bowl, drizzle in a little olive oil to coat the inside of the bowl. Place the dough in the bowl and roll in the olive oil to coat. Cover with plastic wrap or a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  4. STEP 4 Roll out onto a lightly floured surface into a 12” x 12” square. Cut into twenty-four 2½” squares, re-rolling dough as needed. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet until golden, about 20 minutes. Halfway through flip the bread over to brown both sides.
  5. Traditionally, these are fried in a cast iron skillet in just a bit of oil.
  6. Serve warm with plenty of Irish Kerrygold butter.
