Sweet Potato Cheddar - Nothing else is better!

So much love in this bread. Extra sharp cheddar and sweet potatoes....yes please.

Sweet Potato Cheddar Loaf

.5 oz instant yeast
9 oz water, temperature controlled
Squeeze of honey
8 oz sweet potato, peeled and boiled
1 lb. 9 oz AP flour
.3 oz kosher salt
.25 oz fresh ground peppercorns
1.5 oz butter, melted
4 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a squeeze of honey.
Smash sweet potato after cooking, add butter, salt, pepper, cheese, with flour in mixing bowl. Blend on low for 2 minutes.
Slowly add water, yeast mixture. Mix on low for 5-10 minutes.
Dough will be slightly tacky and soft. Add more flour if needed.
Allow dough to set in warm spot until doubled. About 2 hours. Punch down and let rise again for 45 minutes.
Shape. Let rise again. Score. Bake for 25 minutes at 350.
This recipe could make two large loaves. But I made one large loaf and some 3 oz dinner rolls!

Super flavorful. Beautiful color.
