How to make it

  • In a small bowl, combine water, yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar.
  • Stir to disolve yeast and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together 1-1/2 cups of the flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • Make a well in the center and stir in the egg.
  • In a saucepan, heat milk (120 to 130 degrees).
  • Stir into flour mixture.
  • Add 2 tablespoons melted margarine plus cooking oil and mix.
  • Stir in yeast mixture.
  • Stir in as much remaining flour as possible.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead in remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic.
  • Place in a greased bowl - turning once to grease surface.
  • Cover and let rise until double in size approximately one hour.
  • Cook potatoes until tender.
  • Drain, add cheese, 2 tablespoons of margarine and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mash until smooth. Set aside.
  • When dough has reached double in size, punch down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Divide in half and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Roll one dough portion into a 12" x 15" rectangle.
  • Transfer to a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Spread filling to one inch of the edges.
  • Roll second dough portion into a 12" x 15" rectangle and place over filling.
  • Pinch edges to seal.
  • Use a fork to prick dough every few inches to let the steam escape.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and brush with 1 tablespoon of melted margarine, butter or *olive oil infused with minced garlic.
  • Cut into squares and serve warm or cool.
  • Makes 24 - 30 portions.
  • This bread is excellent as a meal, as an appetizer, served with stew or soup.
  • Note: I love garlic so much I usually keep a glass jar with olive oil and garlic cloves close by ;-)

    I grew up eating this, however we never made it with a top crust. Longhorn Colby is our cheese of choice as well as sharp cheddar. We called it pierogi pizza.
