Method

Garlic is another possible addition to potato bread. Use about 3 percent garlic based on the overall flour weight. To prepare the garlic, cut about ½ inch off the top of whole bulbs, and place them right side up on a sheet pan. There is no need to peel the bulbs. Sprinkle a light coat of olive oil on the exposed cloves. Cover the sheet pan with aluminum foil and bake at about 350°F until the garlic is soft. Remove the garlic from its husk by squeezing the individual cloves. Add the garlic to the dough at the beginning of the mix. Brushed with olive oil and grilled, or simply toasted and buttered, potato bread with garlic is a special treat. Any of the herbs listed above can of course be added in conjunction with the garlic.
