I'm surprised there isn't a thread for such a staple. I hate buying bread because nobody can make it right (except for Reinecker's German breads), so I make it myself. Today I made Abruzzese potato bread (pane di patate). It's a denser bread made by the hillbillies of Italy (about 30% potatoes, 70% wheat flour and sometimes made with whole wheat). Thick, crusty crust that allows it to both be played like a drum and eaten like bread. Pairs well with wild boar and dago red.
