Gluten Free Potato Flat Bread                                                                                             Serves 10

This bread is perfect for open faced sandwiches or as a perfect choice to spread with dips or fillings.

1 large russet potato, (about ¾ pound)

1 tsp sea salt

¼ stick (2 Tbsp) butter or margarine, melted

1 egg

2 tsp sugar

½ cup gluten-free flour blend or brown rice flour

1 cup potato starch

2 tsp xanthan gum

½ tsp gluten-free baking powder

Rice flour, potato starch or gluten-free flour blend for rolling

Gluten-free cooking spray or olive oil

  1. Boil potato until just cooked; cool and peel. (You can cut up the potato and cook in the microwave in a small amount of water as well.)
  2. Combine gluten-free flour, potato starch, xanthan gum and baking powder.
  3. Place cooked potatoes in a food processor and process with salt until smooth.
  4. In a large bowl, cream butter with egg and sugar; mix in potato mixture, then add gluten-free flour, potato starch, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Add a little water if dough is too dry. Mix together until smooth.
  5. Work dough into 1/3  cup balls. If too sticky, add additional flour blend or potato starch. If too stiff, add a little of the water you used to boil or cook the potato to loosen it.  Dough should be workable not too sticky.
  6. On wax paper that has been dusted with gluten-free flour or potato starch, roll out each dough ball to make either a ¼ inch-thick disk to make a flat bread or follow directions below to make appetizers.  Spray skillet with cooking spray (or use cooking oil), then heat the pan.
  7. Cook each disk until brown and bubbling on each side. Serve warm.  If not serving same day refrigerate the cooked breads, but it will get hard because of potato, just heat (oven, toaster oven, skillet or microwave) and it softens right up like magic.
