I've been trying for years to find the perfect sweet potato soufle recipe. This one definitely qualifies. I served it with my Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone raved about how delicious it was. I found a couple of problems with the recipe, though. In the ingredients list it calls for 1/3 c. softened butter. Then in the directions that amount is changed to 1/4 c. I had already measured out the 1/3 c. so I went ahead and used that much. It was fine. I think it works best when the margarine is melted rather than just softened, too. The baking dish called for in the recipe is 9x13. I believe that is much too large for a single recipe. I used one that is 8x11 and it was the ideal size.




This was a terrific recipe for using minimal ingredients. Here's what I did to make it easy. I cut the recipe in half and it was more than enough for the 3 of us. That meant, I only used one sweet potatoe and I cubed it before boiling it so I was able to have mashed sweet potato in less than 15 minutes. Also, I added a little orange peel zest to the mixture. I put the entire thing in a glass pie plate and it made the presentation beautiful. The topping crunched up perfectly and this was easy to make while managing my main course.




I made this for todays Thanksgiving dinner. It received very high remarks. The only changes I make was I doubled the topping.Also, I used two 40 oz. cans of sweet potatoes drained well. and NO ONE could tell. This really cuts the prep time in half. Thanks for sharing.
