Sweet Potato Rolls - Rollo de Patata

Meat and three veg doesn't have to be as boring as it sounds if you have some sweet potato rolls!  I love these little gems with most roast meals.   They add a little twist to the normal baked potatoes.

Sweet Potato Rolls - Rollo de Patata Dulce


  • 375 grams sweet potatoes
  • 45 grams compressed yeast
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 kilo plain flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 teaspoons cold water
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Peel and boil potatoes until tender, mash until smooth and cool.  Blend the yeast and honey, stir in the warm water and mix thoroughly.

Sift the flour and 2 teaspoons of salt into a large basin and make a well in the centre.  Pour in the yeast mixture, stir lightly, then allow to set for about 10 minutes.

Stir in the mashed, cooled potatoes and mix until dough is well blended.  Flour a surface and tip dough onto it. Knead thoroughly, shape into a ball, and allow to stand in a warm place for approximately 30 minutes or until dough has doubled in bulk.

Punch the dough down, then shape into 18 sausage style balls.  Arrange the balls close together on a greased baking tray, preferably in a circular design.  Allow to rise again for another 25 minutes.

Blend the egg yolk and water, brush the tops of each roll and sprinkle with a little crushed rock salt.  Place in a pre-heated hot oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until crust is golden.  Serve warm or cold.
