Cheesy potato and garlic pull-aparts


Potato bread makes for serious carb-loading, but it's so good. By all means add some herbs here, particularly rosemary. It can also be left as a loaf and cut into slices after baking.

You'll need

500 gm floury potatoes (such as desiree), quartered 50 ml olive oil 2 heads of garlic 500 gm (3 1/3 cups) bread flour 2 tsp salt ½ tsp dried yeast 160 gm coarsely grated Tilsit or Gruyère

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Spread potatoes in a roasting pan, season to taste with sea salt, drizzle with a little olive oil and roast until tender (50 minutes to 1 hour). Remove and set aside to cool.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, place garlic on an oven tray and roast until soft (8-10 minutes). Cool, then peel cloves carefully and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine flour, salt and yeast and 360ml lukewarm water in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and knead until smooth and elastic (4-5 minutes, or you can knead by hand which will take 8-10 minutes). Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a tea towel. Set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (1 hour).
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 200C. On a lightly floured work surface roll out dough to a 25cm x 40cm rectangle. Scatter cheese, potatoes and garlic cloves over then, from the longest side, roll up into a cylinder and cut into 4cm-5cm pieces. Stand cut side up and press together on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Cover with a tea towel and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1 hour). Bake until golden brown (35-40 minutes). Serve warm.
