Potato Bread with Chives; The Bread Baking Babes Celebrate Spring — 15 Comments

  1. I think it’s great that so many of us have those chives in the garden. Good idea to toast it! We didn’t have the chance to toast it… it was gone before we thought about that. Good thing there is always a next time 😉

  2. You have reminded me to head to the farmers market after volunteering to pick up some chives to plant. Perhaps i could make some chive butter for this tender bread.

  3. Hmmm that looks so yummy, look at that crust!! Can we just wait a while till it warms up some more before we perform any naked periwinkle running?

  4. Naked thru the periwinkle … sounds like our kind of thing. And I really think since we’d be running and we’d have some of this warm bread with butter waiting for us in the kitchen, it would be ok if it was a little chilly.
    The buttered crust is beautiful!

  5. It would take quite a bit of bubbly to persuade me to run naked through the periwinkles. It would only take a cup of tea to talk me into a slice of this bread, though.

  6. I want to run among the periwinkles under the full moon with you two. I spare you my nakedness and will only bare my feet! Lovely bread!

  7. Lien, gone so fast? That must be fun, actually…. being only 2 things last a bit longer LOL
    Val, I’d be lost without my chives – and they’re pretty indesctructible
    Baking Soda, it’s been lovely warm here – with almost a full moon. We can wait til the next full moon…
    Taste of Beirut, I’ve put sage in bread before but not chives…. they added a delicate flavor.
    Tanna, good idea, we can pop a loaf in the oven as we leave….
    Lynn, quite a bit of bubble is always good.
    Ilva, oh come on…. be brave ;-))

  8. You give me some bubbly and I would happily run through the woods naked with you. You only live once, right?
    This bread also looks like a great way to celebrate. Chives are one of my favorite herbs and the markets have been bursting with them. Definitely need to make this.

  9. Yum! I have to say I really like potato bread. I have made it a few times and always really liked how light it was. Chives sound like a perfect contrasting flavour.

  10. Our chives are just now getting to the point that I can safely start snipping. (This is what comes of insisting on growing chives in a shady garden.)
    But what to do, what to do! The first chive snippings HAVE to be for hard boiled (or soft poached for those who are insane) eggs and Hollandaise sauce….

  11. Beautiful bread for using with chives. Love the golden glow of your loaf. My loaf was kinda wet too, hence flatter than I had hoped, but deliciosu.

  12. Joanne, absolutely, we only live once, might as well live large….
    Katerina, this was my first potato bread – delicious and the chives added a nice, subtle flavor.
    Elizabeth, I once threw a clump of chives into the woods behind our house in MN. (cleaning out the garden) The next spring is was happily growing all on it’s own – in deep shade.
    Elle, I was afraid it would run off the baking sheet but it hald tight hahaha!
