Potato Herb Bread

Everyone agrees my garden-fresh chives add fabulous flavor to this moist and tasty bread. Plus, the green flecks are quite pretty.—Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 loaves (16 slices each)


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup minced chives
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon, crushed
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the soup, hot water, milk powder, sour cream, chives, butter, salt, tarragon, yeast mixture, remaining sugar and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Divide in half. Shape in two loaves and place in greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until golden.
