Church of Jesus Christ General Conference Traditions

It's @churchofjesuschrist's semi-annual General Conference this weekend and it's one of my FAVE weekends of the year. Cooler weather, leaves are changing, I get to relax in my PJs, hang with the fam, and enjoy good eats! It's a much-needed weekend of spiritual uplifting and rejuvenation. ❤️ Sharing four of my go-to General Conference weekend brekkies that are easy to make for the fam or a big crowd. 😍

Zesty Orange Sweet Rolls

185 calories / 6F / 29C / 4P / per roll with glaze


  • 2 ½ tsp. instant yeast
  • ½ cup warm water (100-115 degrees)
  • ½ cup grass-fed butter
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes

  • 1 tsp. orange zest


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbs. pasteurized egg whites
  • 1 Tbs. fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp. orange zest

1. Beat eggs in a small bowl; set aside. Dissolve yeast into warm water. Once dissolved, pour eggs into water with yeast; set aside. Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and beat with hand mixers until smooth; set aside.

2. Heat almond milk in a pot over high heat until small bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat. Add the cold butter, honey, salt and sweet potatoes. Stir until all the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth.

3. Place in a bread mixer or Kitchen Aid Mixer. Add the egg mixture and the flour. Knead for 10 minutes. Cover and let rise in the fridge for two hours.

4. Split the dough in half. Place the dough on a floured surface and roll both dough balls into large, thin rectangles. Mix the filling ingredients together and then spread evenly all over dough. Slice each rectangle into 12 strips and roll up. Place on a greased baking sheet; 12 rolls per sheet. Cover with a dish towel and let rise on the counter for 5+ hours or overnight.

5. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Beat glaze ingredients together and drizzle over the top. Enjoy!
