  1. Dissolve yeast, warm water, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a mixing bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Add remaining sugar, sweet potato, butter or margarine, salt, and slightly beaten eggs. Stir to mix well. Stir in 3 cups of flour. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead 2 to 3 minutes, adding just enough of remaining flour to prevent sticking. Do not knead too heavily; when smooth, shape into a ball. Place in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover, and let raise about 1 hour or longer.
  3. Punch down, and allow dough to rest for 2 minutes. Divide into 16 to 20 balls, and place on a greased cookie sheet or in a 9x13 inch pan. Allow to rise until doubled.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

I used 3 fresh sweet potatoes that had been baked and mashed. The color of these rolls was beautiful. My family is avowed sweet potato haters so I didn't tell them what kind of rolls they were s...

Yes, these rolls are tender, moist & the color is pretty, but if you are expecting a little more flavor (like perhaps sweet potato) then you may be disappointed. I too used almost 5 cups of flo...

Wonderful recipe! I used yams (cooked and mashed) and I substituded 2 c. whole wheat flour for 2 c. of the white flour. I threw it all in my bread machine without too much trouble. Works fine...

We loved these rolls and will make them every Thanksgiving from now on. My one year old could not get enough. Very moist and great flavor. I used 1/2 cup extra sweet potato (fresh).

I loved these rolls. The texture is so tender, and they have a delicate flavor--not too sweet. I had 3 small sweet potatoes, so I cooked & mashed those instead of canned. I tried something diffe...

I used fresh cooked sweet potatoes instead of canned. Absolutely fabulous rolls! Ate them with some Honeybaked Ham for breakfast. I will definitely make these again.
