Sweet Potato Soufflé

I was asked on Facebook to share this recipe and this is easiest. I’d love to take credit but can’t: it’s from my ex-boyfriend’s mother.


3 cups cooked sweet potatoes (not yams), mashed

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1/3 stick butter/margarine, melted

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla


1 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup plain flour

1 cup chopped pecans

1/3 stick butter/margarine


Put potatoes into mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add butter/margarine, sugar, salt, eggs, milk & vanilla. Mix well. Pour into greased 9×13 casserole dish and bake 20-30 minutes at 400F until potatoes look firm.

Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle on top of casserole. Return to oven to brown for about 10 minutes.

Serves 10-12
