This Cheesy Potato Bread is an easy and original bread recipe. It has all the flavor of yeasted bread, but without all the kneading. Yes, you read that correctly. This is a no-knead Cheese Potato Bread. Adding potato to bread is a trick that artisan bread bakers have used for many years. The starchiness in the potato attracts more moisture, so the result is a softer bread. This Cheesy Potato Bread is soft, with a golden-brown crust. The cheese not only adds flavor but also makes the rolls softer. Finally, parsley adds the right amount of herb flavor to take bread to the next level.

No-knead breads are super easy to make. And this Cheesy Potato Bread is no different. In a few quick steps, you can enjoy a delicious warm roll. To make it, start by mashing a boiled (or steamed potato) in a bowl with milk.
Add the remaining ingredients, stirring well after each addition. Allow to rise for 2 hours (or until doubled in size).
The dough is then placed in a greased baking dish (preferably a glass baking dish). The cheese is added by slotting them into grooves and the Cheese Potato Bread is then baked in the oven.
