Ingredients:

8 T. sugar
1 c. sweet potato puree
1 c. warm water
6 T. melted butter
2 tsp. salt
4 eggs
7 c. flour

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve the yeast in warm water with the sugar. After you peel, cook/steam, and mash the sweet potatoes, make sure you run them through a sieve to remove any chunks or strands. Add the puree, butter, salt and eggs. Add the flour one cup at a time, kneading or mixing in a KitchenAid until it forms a dough easy to work with. Let rise at room temperature until double (1-2 hours). Then pull handfuls out forming into balls (about 1/3 c. size) and placing an inch apart on a buttered baking sheet (the lighter the color baking sheet, the more evenly they will cook and not burn on the bottom). Cover and let rise another hour in a warm place. Cook at 375 degrees for about 12-15 minutes (or light golden brown on top). Makes about 30-40 rolls that are so moist and just incredible!

Personal Notes:
I came across this recipe when I was making baby food and had leftover sweet potato puree. It was an incredible find! The potatoes make the rolls so moist and just slightly orange in color. I always bake everything on the convection setting- it makes my breads rise better and cook super evenly.
