These pillowy-soft Sweet Potato Rolls are nothing short of the perfect bread for almost any occasion. As a big batch baked in a casserole dish, pull-apart style, they're great for sharing with family and friends at Thanksgiving or any other big gathering.
*To make the mashed sweet potatoes, peel two large sweet potatoes and cut into 1/4"-1/2" thick slices. Place in a large microwave-safe bowl along with 2 ounces (1/4 cup) water. Microwave for about 10 minutes, until soft and tender. Purée with an immersion blender until fairly smooth. Measure out the amount needed for the recipe, reserving remainder for another use.
***To check the temperature of the baked rolls, you can either use an instant-read thermometer again after 20-25 minutes of baking, or monitor the temperature the entire time with a probe-stye thermometer like the DOT
