Sweet Potato Rolls

Not only are these a great addition to your holiday meal they are tasty any time of the year. The rolls are tender with a delicate texture and a lovely peach color. If you're trying to sneak more vegetables and vitamins into your family's diet, this is just the recipe to try.

1 c water
1 15 oz can of sweet potatoes, mashed
½ c sugar
¼ c butter
1 egg
1 ½ t salt
5-5 ½ c flour
1 ½ T fast yeast

Combine the above ingredients in your bread machine in the order listed. Set the machine for the dough cycle. When complete, divide the dough in half and roll each half into a large circle. Make four diagonal cuts through the center of the circle, as you would slice a pizza, and starting at the back edge, roll up each slice crescent roll style. When finished, brush each roll with the beaten egg white. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden.

If you don't have a bread machine, modify the recipe by merely mixing up and kneading the dough as you would a regular, handmade bread recipe.

Those look beautiful! I would make them for tomorrow's dinner, but I have vowed that I'm not going back to the grocery store again until after Christmas. :)

They look very yummy--and I never would've guessed you could put sweet potatoes into rolls like that, although I guess people do put potatoes into their rolls.

Merry Christmas, Michelle!

Wow, these look like Spanish rolls that I've been missing, and have been putting off making because it's not very healthy LOL. Now I've got an excuse, those sweet potatoes!

Looks like croissant rolls and spanish bread. I think it would go well with ham and cheese.
