Sweet Potato Rolls

Posted on

One of my favorite rolls to make is a sweet potato roll because of how easy it is. I typically like to make this with leftover sweet potatoes to clear out the pantry or fridge. You can change up the sauce you use depending on what you’re in the mood to eat. Try the rolls with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, or without any sauce to switch up the flavors!
