Sweet Potato Rolls

when my friend ED owned a bakery,he was telling me he was making sweet potato rolls for the holidays. i thought yum,so i found an old potato bread recipe and switched out the potatoes for sweet potatoes. i had a bunch of "yams" in a can,from the food shelf. since i think sweet potatoes are gross with sugar,ect on them,i mashed some of those up and used them,lol.  the other day was the 1st time i used a regular sweet potato that i baked in the oven with the beans,lol. they were even better! btw, when i serve sweet potatoes they are: mashed with milk & butter(like regular potatoes),baked wedges or french fried sweet potatoes! i have also home fried them,throw them in soups,ect. my son even likes them ,i started him off with sweet potato fries. anyways, i'm sure i missed a few other ways i use them,lol. now i'm done with my little salute to sweet potatoes and here is my recipe.
                 SWEET POTATO ROLLS
1/2 cup sweet potatoes (use any kind of potatoes to add ur own mark)
1 cup milk                 1 pkg or 2 1/4 tsp yeast
1/4 cup shortening     1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar            4 to 4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt                   1 egg(beaten)

put into bread maker in order with yeast on top and egg on the bottom. or according to your bread maker directions. put it on the DOUGH setting. when done punch down and take out. make into rolls,let rise until doubled. bake at 400 f for about 15 minutes. until lightly browned.
if u do not have a bread maker...sprinkle yeast on 1/4 cup warm water add WARMED milk,shortening,sugar salt and sweet potatoes(warm or cold)then add the beaten egg. add the flour,1 cup at a time. knead the dough,until it's elastic. make into a smooth ball and set in a bowl to rise until it's doubled. punch down and make into rolls. follow baking directions as above.
