Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls with Honey Butter Glaze
Serves: 20
For the Rolls
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast (I used Red Star)
  • 4½ - 5 C bread flour
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • ¼ C warm water, 120 degrees F
  • 1 C low-fat buttermilk, warmed to 120 degrees F
  • ¼ C butter, melted and cooled
  • ¾ C mashed sweet potato
For the Glaze
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, 2½ cups flour, salt and sugar with the paddle attachment.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, water, buttermilk, and butter. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Add 2 more cups of flour and mashed sweet potato. Switch out paddle attachment for a dough hook and knead until dough smooth and elastic. If dough is super sticky, add remaining ½ cup of flour. Dough should pull away from sides of bowl and be slightly sticky.
  3. Transfer dough to a large bowl that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray or buttered and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and punch down. Divide dough into 20 pieces. Roll pieces into a ball and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray or buttered. Let dough rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  5. While rolls are rising, preheat oven to 375. Bake rolls for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Melt butter in microwave at 5 second intervals until just melted. Stir in honey until well-combined. Brush glaze over warm rolls and serve.
