Sweet Potato & Rosemary Brioche Rolls Method

  1. Place the flour, dry yeast, and brown sugar into the bowl of a stand-up mixer with the hook attachment, and blend until combined on a low speed. 
  2. Next add the mashed potatoes, egg, and the majority of the rosemary leaves saving some for the topping later. Add the butter and then slowly pour in the milk with the mixer on medium speed. You may not need all of the milk and can keep some back to glaze.
  3. From time to time, scrape the sides of the bowl down, and once the ingredients are all combined, bring the speed to medium-high and knead until the dough comes off from the sides and wraps itself on the hook. 
  4. Finally, add your salt and give a final knead on a high speed.
  5. Let the dough rest for 20 minutes in the bowl, before shaping into a ball and leaving to rise until doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has proven for the first time, start shaping your rolls. You should have 14 rolls of about 75g each.
  7. Place the rolls for a second rise onto a prepared baking tray and let them rest for a further 40 minutes. 
  8. Bake them at 190°C (Gas Mark 4 ½) until golden brown. You can brush the rolls with the leftover milk before baking, or prepare a mix of butter and honey to be brushed when still hot, then finish with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes and rosemary leaves.
