Sweet Potato Souffle

With Easter gone by, I figured I’d share one recipe that seems to get a lot of positive feedback, albeit late. I feel that it goes over well for two reasons, 1) adults like that it has sweet potatoes which they relate to being a healthy food, 2) it’s filled with so much sugar that if you can get a kid to try it, they will assuredly be willing to try sweet potatoes again 🙂


Any feedback or personal trials are appreciated as always.
Main Ingredients:
3 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 c skim evaporated milk
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
Mix all of these ingredients together and pour into an 8″x8″ baking dish.
Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (my favorite is walnuts but pecans work well too)
1 stick of melted butter/margarine
I mix the brown sugar, flour and chopped nuts together and then spread them over the top of the sweet potatoes. After that, I pour the melted butter over the dry topping. This works well for me but you could probably mix them all together and still come out alright.
After that, put it in the oven for 30-35 mins on 350 degrees and wait for the tantalizing goodness to be done.
