Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

I made these rolls for Thanksgiving and they are a lovely gold/orange color. The sweet potatoes give a hint of a taste that you really can't put your finger on. They were a big hit and there were none left to bring home. The recipe comes from the North Dakota Wheat Commission.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prep time includes rising times.
  2. In large bowl, blend 1 cup flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add egg, sweet potatoes, shortening and milk. Beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes. Gradually stir in oats and remaining flour until a soft dough is formed. Add more flour if sticky.
  3. Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead dough until smooth, about 10-12 minutes. Place in bowl coated with non-stick spray, turning to grease top; cover and let rise until double, about 1 hour.
  4. Divide dough into 30 portions and shape into rolls. (For larger rolls, divide into 20 portions; dough can also be shaped into a loaf and placed in 4 x 8 inch pan.) Place on cookie sheets coated with non-stick spray. Let rise 1 hour or until double. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
