Here’s to the survivors. To those of us who ate too much and drank too much and slept in the guest room - no matter well we get along with our family and how well-appointed the guest room - we who slept fitfully, dreamt about Gritty, and woke up early, under a pile of our spouse’s unwanted covers, to let the dog out in the rain.
We deserve a sandwich. I’d like leftover turkey and cranberry on toasted Sweet Potato Sandwich Bread, please. With brie and fresh greens. I wouldn’t say no to a Screwdriver. Is there any pie?
Sweet Potato Sandwich Bread
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 package)
1/2 cup warm water
5 cups bread flour
Combine everything but the flour in the bowl of your mixer and mix well. Slowly add flour until the dough comes together. Knead on a floured board for 5-10 minutes.
Put dough in a lightly oiled bowl, flipping the dough over inside the bowl so that the top of the dough is also oiled. Cover bowl and let the dough rise for 1 to 2 hours, until doubled.
Punch down the dough and form it into 2 loaves. Place loaves in 2 oiled bread pans and let it rise for 40 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. Cool before slicing.
