Recipe of the day: Viral ‘two ingredient’ cheesy potato bread

This two-ingredient cheesy potato bread went viral on TikTok and the ingredients are pantry friendly.

There is an element of fun and unknown when making a viral recipe, especially if the dish is just from two main ingredients and made within 20 minutes such as two ingredient cheesy potato bread.

This two ingredient cheesy potato bread went viral on TikTok last year, and has thousands of recreations from content creators and foodies alike. 

This recipe has over a 1.2million views on a Tiktok account Cook Vegetarian, however, most people weren’t too happy to find out the two-ingredient cheesy potato bread recipe actually consisted of five to seven ingredients. 

The technicality is from the bread, the dough only has two ingredients. A tip is to make ahead the potatoes and make sure the potatoes are cooked and mashed, it doesn’t necessarily have to be cooled.

Either way, most of these ingredients are pantry friendly and the recipe is simple to make.

  1. Make the dough. In a bowl combine yoghurt and flour. Form into a ball and kneed until soft, this won’t take long. 
  2. Make the filling by combing mashed potatoes with cheese and seasonings. 
  3. Divide the dough into 2 parts. 
  4. Roll out each part into a 1cm thick circle. Add half of the filling into the middle and gather the edges of the dough around the filling, pinch them together to seal. Flip and roll out to a disk shape. 
  5. Pan fry on both sides until golden over medium-high heat or pop in the oven for 10 minutes at 180C. 
  6. Brush with melted butter and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve and enjoy right away!
