Homemade Sweet Potato Burger Buns...

1/4 cup water
2 tsp yeast
2 tbsp soft butter
1 tsp salt
1 lg egg
3/4 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato (approx. 1 medium)
1/4 cup dry milk (if you do not have milk powder...instead of the powder and water use 1/4 cup milk and just omit the water/powder...I do this sometimes and it works fine...they do seem to dry out faster this way so if you can use the dry milk and water I suggest using it)
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

mix all ingredients...(don't let salt sit on top of the yeast...yeast doesn't like direct contact with salt)...after mixing...knead approx 6 minutes and place in greased bowl...cover and let rise for approx 45 min or until double in size. Shape into 6 balls, then one at a time roll dough into a snake shape...and form into a kaiser roll....see link: . Cover the shaped rolls and let rise another 25-30 min. Bake at 375 for approx 17-19 min until the tops are a rich golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool and slice. Enjoy!
