    Move over old recipe!

    Sherri Manning from BEAUFORT, SC

    I am always trying new recipes and tweaking them to just the perfect way before I put them in my own personal recipe lists. I thought that I had a perfect sweet potato casserole recipe...before I tried this one. Superb, a must try b/c it was easier, faster, and better tasting than my previous recipe. (And I even forgot to add the butter!)

    Christmas dinner

    Barb McCammon from Osborne, KS

    I made this for our family Christmas as an alternative to the traditional sweet potatoes. If I make it again, I will definatley be adding more spices as the taste was very bland.

    sweet potato souffle

    Martha Pierson from Miami, FL

    I find the canned sweet potatoes way tooo sweet. I bake fresh sweet potatoes wrapped in aluminum foil at 400 until a fork comes out clean (about 30 min). You can add more brown sugar for your own taste. I also add golden rasins, coconut flakes and pecans to my souffle as well as 1/4 C of kulua. Then add either pecans or marshmallows on the top.

    Hard to believe this is sweet potatoes...

    melony hoefer from omaha, NE

    Fabulous dish, super easy and a huge hit with the family....we made with fresh sweet potatoes as we had a bumper crop this year and I may need to plant even more for next year so I can make this more often.....

    Sweet Potatoes

    I had this at my sis-in-law's for Thanksgiving and it was to die for. She let us think it took hours to make, then she told us her secret, quick and easy recipe. I'm making this next holiday!

    Best ever!

    Charlene Hirschberg from HIGHLAND MILLS, NY

    I got this recipe last minute from a friend this year. As I had already bought fresh sweet potatoes, I baked and scooped them for the recipe. And, since my guests were clamoring for a marshmallow-topped sweet potato dish this year, I just threw mini marshmallows on top of the pecans, and baked until browned. A HUGE hit!

    Terrific Side

    JENNI KOONTZ from GULF BREEZE, FL

    Since I've only tried a few recipes so far, and wanting to use fresh veggies and lower-fat items I modified this with cubed & boiled sweet potatoes and added a bit of chunk pineapple - terrific! I suggest whipping the eggs seperately and then folding in for smoother texture. We loved it and will repeat with pork tenderloin soon! Thanks!

    Easy New Side Dish

    Debbie Ziobert from NORTH BRANCH, MN

    This is so quick and easy to make! I served it this thanksgiving for the first time and it went over great. It also looks great among all the other holiday dishes. I added extra pecan pieces for a little more crunch!

  •  Star(s)

    Fabulous!!

    Dee Nicastro from Howard Beach, NY

    I made this dish to bring to a Thanksgiving dinner and it was a huge hit!! I followed the directions exactly, except at the end, in addition to sprinkling the top with pecans, I also sprinkled some extra brown sugar!! It was really a cinch to put this recipe together, and it made a lovely presentation as well!! I cooked it all the way, then the hostess popped it in her over to keep warm and it served beautifully! It was very light and with just the right amount of sweetness! The pecans on top gave it a nice crunch that went perfectly with the smooth texture of the souffle! I am definitely making this again for Christmas dinner!

  •  Star(s)

    SOOOO Yummy!

    Lisa Rademacher from ELK RIVER, MN

    I made this today to bring to our Thanksgiving tomorrow. First of all, what an easy recipe! Secondly, it is the best sweet potato dish I have eaten! I snuck some and cooked it for myself and tomorrow I think I will forget the Turkey, stuffing, etc and just eat my sweet potato souffle. Whoever thought up this recipe is brillant!

    Great all by it self!

    Gwen Mitchell from Greenville, NC

    This is great! I like to put brown sugar on the top with the nuts. I could eat it all by itself!

    Very Good!!!

    Jessica Weiss from WICHITA FALLS, TX

    I really enjoyed eating this for breakfast in the morning. The texture of the souffle is fantastic and the pecans add a nice crunch to the mix! It's not overly sweet but just right. If you like sweet potatoes, you'll love this souffle!!

    Sweet Potato Souffle'

    rosemary correia from WESTPORT, MA

    My family enjoys sweet potato casserole. Ones I have made in the past usually call for molasses which are very good. What I liked best about this souffle is that it wasn't overly sweet. Instead of putting nuts on top I make a mixture of crushed vanilla wafers, brown sugar and melted butter or margarine. It comes out excellent

    My new holiday favorite

    Gwen Boulton from Cleveland, OH

    I love sweet potatoes but my husband really doesn’t, so I’ve been searching for a recipe that we could both enjoy. After making the Soufflé' my husband was very skeptical but when he tried it he loved it!! I add more nuts because we like it crunchy it’s delicious!!!

    Wow!!!

    Karen S from Worth, Il

    We have added this to our holiday favorites, and it is sorely missed when skipped for even one occasion! The only slight change we made: we triple the amount of chopped pecans for the recipe. They add the perfect balance for us, and keep the "top scraping" at bay!

    Mari from Clute, Texas

    I thought this recipe was extremely easy to make. I made it in a spring bottom pan and sprinkled the bottom with the pecans and then added the souffle. After it was baked I fliped it out of the pan into a serving plate and it came out beautifully. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe.
