Cheesy Potato Bread [Bread Machine]

I made this on a whim, and it turned out pretty well! It's great with eggs or for a sandwich. I made the 1 1/2 pound loaf, but I suppose I'll include both...

for 1 1/2 pound loaf:
3/4 c. water
1/2 c. chopped, peeled potato
1/3 c. milk
1/3 c. shredded cheese
2 tsp. butter
3 c. bread flour
1 Tbl. sugar
3/4 tsp. onion salt
1/4 tsp. caraway seeds, crushed (optional, I didn't use them this time)
1 tsp. active dry yeast or bread machine yeast

for 2 pound loaf:
1 c. water
2/3 c. chopped, peeled potato
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. shredded cheese
1 Tbl. butter
4 c. bread flour
4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. onion salt
1/2 tsp. caraway seeds, crushed (optional)
1 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast, or bread machine yeast

1. Select desired loaf. In a small saucepan, combine the water and potato. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer covered, about 10 minutes (or until tender) and do not drain.
2. Mash potato in the water, measure the mixture. If necessary, add water to equal 3/4 c. mixture for 1 1/2-pound loaf or 1 c. mixture for the 2-pound loaf; discard any excess mixture. Cool slightly.
3. Add the potato mixture and remaining ingredients to a bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions. Select the basic white bread cycle.
4. Remove hot bread from machine as soon as it's done and cool on a wire rack.
