MY REVIEW

"These are wonderful! As for making them without a bread machine, I would imagine that if you just follow instructions for a standard home made bread recipe, using these ingredients, this would work. "Proof" the yeast in half of the warm water, adding about a teaspoon of the sugar, then set aside for a few minutes until it starts to bubble. Use your mixer and stir together the wet ingredients plus the salt and sugar, adding the yeast mixture, then beat in about 1 - 2 cups of the flour, and beat for 2 - 3 minutes, until it starts to "sheet". Stir in the remainder of the flour by hand and knead until smooth and elastic... 6 - 8 minutes. Grease a large bowl ( or just butter your already messy hands, and grease the ball of dough itself), cover and set in a warm place to rise until double... probably about an hour or so. Punch down, divide into 30 rolls and follow the rest of the instructions in this recipe. I'm sure someone will correct me if I have left something out.Oh, and I did not mash my sweet potato. I just put a sweet potato in the microwave and set the timer for 5 - 6 minutes, depending on the size of the potato. When squishy, pull out and let it set until cool enough to handle, but still warm. Peel the skin off the potato and cut into chunks, adding directly to the bread machine bowl. I did not measure.... just eyeballed it, and the bread machine did the rest. No need to dirty extra dishes to mash it up. I had a bit of sweet potato left, so I refrigerated until the next time I made regular bread, and just added it to that recipe, using my usual measurements. None went to waste, and that loaf of bread was extra moist and had a lovely light orange hue. Just another idea..."

"Soooo good. Even my son in law and grandchildren, that do not like sweet potatoes, loved these rolls. I didn't tell them the secret ingredient. I will make them again and again! Yumm!"

"These tender, flavorful dinner rolls are so good. My son in law, who dislikes sweet potatoes, could not get enough of them. The grandkids loved them too. This is a keeper for sure."
