You ask, I deliver. Here is the recipe for the sweet potato souffle that my friend will be making this week for our feast. A nice alternative to the usual marshmallow concoction. My friend got the recipe from her sister who got it from a friend who got it from…well, you get the picture.

Sweet Potato Souffle
Base – mix together and put into a buttered glass cake pan:
– 1/2 c. sugar
– 2 eggs
– 3 c. mashed sweet potatoes
– 1 Tbsp. vanilla
– 1/2 stick melted butter

Topping:
– 1 c. brown sugar
– 1/3 c. flour
– 1 c. chopped pecans
– 1/3 c. butter (softened)

Note from reader Matty: Use softened butter and mix with the flour and brown sugar (like a crumble). Once that is sprinkled over the sweet potatoes, cover with chopped pecans.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

    I was very interested in seeing your recipe as I LOVE the marshmallow topped potatoes, but would be up for an alternative. BUT, I’m very allergic to nuts so I’ll have to stick wtih teh sticky, sweet marshmallows!

    happy thanksgiving!

    I just saw that exact recipe on another blog and it was credited to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, which apparently offers this sweet potato souffle as a regular side dish. FYI. Happy Thanksgiving!

    This is the way I make my sweet potatoes and everyone loves it. For the topping, I do not melt the butter. I use softened butter and mix with the flour and brown sugar (like a crumble). Once that is sprinkled over the sweet potatoes, I cover with chopped pecans. YUM!!
