Will Starr Bakes Bread

Updated on June 25, 2011

Will’s potato French bread, using a stand mixer and a dough hook

...

Note: This is my own recipe worked up from several others. It's a moist, chewy French bread with a medium hard crust. It keeps well for several days. We usually use one loaf and freeze the other.

...

Ingredients:

2 medium potatoes

2 tablespoons active dry yeast

2 teaspoons salt

2 cups reserved potato cooking water

6 cups bread flour

1 teaspoon corn meal

1 egg white

I tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

...

Peel and dice potatoes. Cook in water until very tender. Pour off cooking liquid and reserve 2 cups (Add plain water if needed to make two cups). Mash potatoes and then add the reserved two cups of liquid, and the salt. Using a whisk, whip mashed potatoes, salt, and potato water until well blended. Allow to cool to lukewarm. Stir in yeast, and pour in mixer bowl.

Add two cups of flour, one at a time and blend well with mixer beater.

Replace beater with dough hook. Add remaining 4 cups of flour, one cup at a time with mixer set on lower speeds to keep flour from coming out of the bowl. As added flour becomes moistened, increase speed.

After final cup is worked in, put mixer on medium speed and allow dough hook to work until mixture pulls the flour mixture off the sides and bottom of the bowl. (Be patient...it will happen!) Allow to work for about two more minutes on the dough hook.

When done, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a dozen times. Shape into a ball and place in a large, greased bowl, turning once to grease all sides. Cover and let rise until doubled in a warm place.

Punch dough down and divide in half. Let rest for ten minutes. Using a floured roller, roll each half into a large rectangle and then roll up from one of the long sides. Fold under slightly and seal the ends.

Grease a cooking sheet with shortening. Dust lightly with corn meal and place the two loaves on the sheet. Brush the tops with a mixture of one egg white and a tablespoon of water. With a sharp knife, cut three shallow, diagonal marks on the top of each loaf. Cover and allow to double in size - about 45 minutes.

Place loaves in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Take out and brush tops again with egg white mixture. Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool on racks.

Note:

Places like Sam’s Club sell bulk bread flour in 25 pound sacks for around $8, and they also sell bulk yeast for around $5, making a loaf of this bread cost around 50 cents.


...

Someone asked me about cowboy skillet bread, so here it is:

1 cup of flour

1 Teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 Teaspoon salt

Water

...

Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add just enough water to form a stiff dough.

It can be cooked two ways:

1) Flatten dough into a circle. Brown slightly on both sides and then bake close to the campfire coals until it sounds hollow when tapped.

(Cowboys loved bacon, so they carried a side with them, slicing off what they wanted to eat. They saved the grease, and used it for things like this next method) :

2) Fry flattened dough in hot bacon grease until golden brown. Flip and fry remaining side the same way.

      PS: Will, several years ago I wrote an article about my Dad based on his young cowboy days when he meandered throughout Montana, blazing trails. I will have to look that article up, spruce it up and make a hub about it. He had some cowboy recipes, too. Thanks for bringing up this memory, spurred by your cowboy bread.

      Thanks to Peg and Audrey I am happy to have seen and read this hub, Will. I love bread and your potato bread sound wonderful. It is really amazing that last night I made some cowboy bread to go with supper. Of course I did not build a campfire to cook it, but I did cook it in my cast iron skillet and made it exactly the way you do -- it was so good. I often make fry bread, too. Great recipes, thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Peg! The dough hook on a powerful stand mixer takes all the hard work out of making bread. I also use this one to make one long loaf that I then hollow out a little for a super-sub sandwich.

      Now, this is one recipe I'm printing out and will definitely give it a try. I have a heavy duty Kitchen Aid mixer and a dough hook I've never put to use. We often buy French loaves at the store, but this looks wonderful. Your instructions are easy to understand and I have all the ingredients at hand. Cool!

      That sounds like over-baking or too hot an oven. Maybe you should get an oven thermometer and check. Some ovens get far hotter than the dial indicates.

      I love the smell and the taste of home made bread. Unfortunately any bread that has come out of my oven did not taste good! I have tried several recipes and mine never work out. I have heard that climate and things like humidity can affect bread a lot. Even using the bread machine - doesn't work out. I keep trying to find just the right recipe and I've never seen one using potatoes so I'm going to try this.

      hello Will!! wish you'd make it rain from the Huachuchas to Prescott every day (or night) for 2 hours for weeks on end!!

      this bread is just magic enough to do it too!!

      I learned to make bread from Nell Kline in Bisbee..ole fashioned way/she said "the more you put in the better it'll be" and she was correct...but the older I get the more I love my dough hook :)

      still love to knead a bit more than a dozen times...takes out a lot of frustration beating and throwing and rolling the dough don't it?

      great hub!!

      What a nice surprise!!! :) My fine Gentleman can bake, how nice for your super lucky wife--unless of course she has to clean up behind you...LOL

      Will, I am a chef, a cook at a diner...I cannot bake anything besides caseroles and potatoes, SERIOUSLY, I swear. I think it is because following recipes I somehow get lost. For instance, you lost me at switching from blender to dough hook...what the heck is a dough hook? See what I mean? I am impossible when following recipes, and if the recipe maker/creatorisn't around to answer my dumb-a_ s questions I might as well throw in the towel... This recipe sounds absolutely yummy, but even though you have provided wonderful and exceptionally great instructions, me, Miss Maggi-May would somehow mess it up and have a ten pound loaf of weighted down something or other.....

      Was pleasantly surprised to see this out of the ordinary Hub from you....Have fun, be happy, MM

      Hi Bob,

      Have no fear...cowboys carried needle and thread and knew how to use them! They either mended their own clothes or wore them torn, because there were no mommas around. All of them could cook out of necessity, although it was usually 'rough grub'.

      It follows, Will, that a cowboy has got to be able to feed himself. This recipe is a little complicated for out on the range, but I bet you make a mean cup of joe, too! Reminds me of one of the things I miss about my ex, he was a hell of a chef. Love the illustration, but it makes me hungry. Don't have the inclination to bake, but I may have to hit the trail in finding a dude that does!

      Every evening--I have a big hunk of this bread with a big glass of cold milk.

      Growing up in Tempe and living in what is now (Hooters)my Cajun grandmere baked this crusty bread and only added a little corn meal. Cajun "couche-couche." It is a habit that I can not break.

      P.S. They lived to be 99---hum I wonder????

      Well well, Mr Starr you amaze me. A man who can cook, you sure would be handy at a camp site. A beautiful meal, an exciting short story and all under the moonlight. You never stop twinkling. x

      I am no cook, but I can recognise a well written and easy to follow article.

      But no further, Will. You'll loose credibility if you tell us you know how to knit and sew and make your own clothes!

      You know, I am going to make this! I have been hearing about potato bread for at least a year now and I love warm bread from the oven,,,and cake..and pies, my husband gets so mad but I like oven things still warm not cold from the fridge. Thank you! I had five brothers and they all could cook in their teens! And iron..I guess Mom got tired, lol..but it always did shock me, and it might be the only good thing I can say about them, lol. They were what my grandpa called hellions.
