Southwest Potato Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M103-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

  • This bread was very popular in our tests.
  • Each mix makes a large loaf--nearly two pounds.
  • SAF yeast packet is enclosed. You provide only water and butter.
  • Directions and tips for perfect bread are included.

Potato bread is soft and moist. Add the spices for a little kick and you have a great bread.

We added just a touch of jalapeno peppers, not enough to make it hot but just to add a bit of kick. If you like flavorful bread, you'll like this.

This is not just the flavor of the Southwest, it would be right at home in New Orleans. It's a great all-purpose bread when you need a little spice in your life.

It was a pleasant delight. Not too spicy. Had it with Mexican cheese salsa mixture was delicious

Great Bread

Thank you so very much for offering these delicious bread mixes - I don't buy bread from the store anymore. Each week I try a different bread mix and am pleased with each one I try. Now that you have me addicted to your product, please, don't even consider closing shop!

Great Bread mixes

I have tried three different bread mixes and have several more to try. They are great products and taste amazing. We have made ours in a bread machine and the directions are correct and bread comes out great every time. Highly recommend.
