SWEET POTATO BUN

500 g all-purpose flour
33 g dried yeast
8 g salt
40 g sugar
80 g eggs
25 g egg whites
30 g butter (room temperature)
250 g Bonne Premium Sweet Potato Purée (cold)
50 g buttermilk (cold)
1 additional egg to brush the buns with

Add the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and knead for 18 minutes on low with a dough hook. Leave the dough to rise under a cloth for 30–45 minutes until it has doubled in volume. Divide the dough into three equal pieces, roll into bars, and divide each bar into ten equal pieces. Roll the pieces into balls by hand, place onto a sheet of baking powder, and cover with cloth leaving the buns to rise. When the buns have doubled in size, brush with egg all over, and bake in a convection oven at 200 °C for approximately 8 minutes, or until the buns have a lovely brown color and are fully baked. Let cool on top of a grill. The finished buns freeze well.

Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Rub the sweet potatoes with olive oil, spices, and salt. Roast the sweet potatoes in the oven at 220 °C, until they are nicely roasted and fully cooked (for example, use a fork to test that the sweet potatoes are soft). Let cool.

PRESENTATION

Cut the buns in half and toast lightly in a pan with butter. Use a spoon to scoop suitable-sized pieces of cooked sweet potato for the filling and heat up in the oven. First, put mayo on the bottom piece of the bun, then add sweet potato relish, and finish with the roast sweet potato and lettuce. Add some may onto the top piece of the bun, assemble the burger, and serve!
