Bun or bread with potatoes

I love pastries with potatoes and I prefer the shape of a bun. There are several recipes here and the shades are in question, but here is my favorite, let it be another in a row. I first tried bread with potatoes according to the deer recipe 3 years ago and I was delighted. Boiled potatoes give a special taste and softness to the pastry and the shape is of your choice. I chose pictures from 2013 for the recipe. when I prepared the buns for the first time in this way and since then they are often on our table. I warmly recommend them in a double dose because they are even tastier the next day!

Preparation steps

  • Put the potatoes in hot water to cook. When they are done, remove the shell and mash with a puree tool. In a deeper bowl, put flour, salt, sugar, yeast, mashed potatoes, olive oil and slowly add lukewarm water. Knead by hand, the dough should be soft but not stick to your hands so if necessary sprinkle a little flour on the desk and knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. Put the dough in a floured bowl and coat the surface with oil. Cover with nylon foil and a cloth and let it rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to the work table, mix it gently and divide it into 5 parts. With lightly folded hands, form a bun from each part and arrange them in a large oven tray lined with baking paper. If you want bread, form an oblong loaf. Brush the surface of the buns thinly with oil, cover and let it rest for another 30 minutes. Sprinkle the grown buns with flour using a strainer and then cut them in several places with a sharp knife.
  • Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 200c for about 30-35 minutes, and if we have shaped a loaf of bread, then bake for about 45 minutes.
  • Simply irresistible !!


They go well with all cooked dishes, but they have a special softness, so they go well with cheese, roasted peppers, tomatoes and give the soul to combine with ajvar or something similar. As far as I'm concerned, I can do without anything! Good appetite !!!!!
