Rustic Sweet Potato Bread Sandwiches

There is a something special about a homemade bread to which I can not really put my finger on. I have had just baked, out of the oven, bread from bakeries numerous times over the years and the taste as well as texture are never the same.

The recipe I am sharing today is more for the rustic Sweet Potato Bread than for the Sandwich filling I used.

Warm, minutes out of the oven with a thick spread of butter ..mmm, heavenly !

The bread rises quite high and it is huge. But I still insisted on slicing where the bottom part and the “cap” of the bread meets – hence my lopsided looking sandwiches !

We loved this dense Sweet Potato Bread so much that I can not wait to make it again. However I will slice it differently next time.

**Instead of slicing in half as I did, I think to slice the bread in long thinner slices would be much better.

Anyhow, whichever way you decide to slice the bread, you can use any kind of filling, but I have to be honest, the filling below is super delicious.

Rustic Sweet Potato Bread Sandwiches

You have to have 450 grams ( one pound ) of mashed Sweet Potatoes, so rather cook an extra Sweet Potato and have a little more than not enough as the weight does reduce when cooking and that is the one ingredient which you need enough of in this recipe.
