{Potato, Olive & Sundried Tomato Bread}

Do you ever find yourselves wondering what to do with that left over mashed potato? Well have I got the recipe for you, I found this loaf over at cook republic (love her food), its so so so simple and so so so yummy, sort of tastes like a giant savoury muffin, the texture is totally lush, this one has cheese, olives and sundried tomatoes in it but the possibilities are endless.

I want to make it again soon and I'm thinking caramelised onions, goats cheese and maybe some walnuts. Its perfect brunch food, we ended up eating big slices of it for dinner with lashings of avocado, gorgeous, I can't wait to make it again, wanna come over for warm slice?

...the loaf
250g potatoes, peeled and chopped into chunks
30g melted butter
2 cups sr flour
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup olives
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
1 cup grated cheese

Preheat oven to 180. Grease and line a loaf tin with baking paper. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender then drain well, transfer them to a large bowl and mash with the melted butter until smooth. Then simply add in the flour, milk, olives, tomatoes and cheese and mix gently to combine. Spoon into the loaf dish and bake for 50 - 60 minutes. Its gorgeous warm enjoy.
