Sweet Potato Buns

sweet potato buns

Today’s recipe is a soft sweet potato roll. It honestly doesn’t hold up well with sloppy joes or pulled pork. The buns are very soft and can get mushy, but the taste and texture is heavenly. I served these with pulled pork tender loin. We ate quickly….it was delicious!
