Our favorite dish at Thanksgiving or Christmas, hands down, is the sweet potatoes, and this is our family’s favorite recipe. I’ve since learned that some people call this Sweet Potato Souffle, but whatever the name it’s so good!
I honestly did not like sweet potatoes–at all, until I tried these. Now it’s what I most look forward to. We like it so much we end up making it often. It’s just too good to save for the holidays!!
Some of my girls don’t like the nuts so I like to make extra and bake it in a separate dish with marshmallows on top for them.
Boil, peel and mash 2-3 pounds of sweet potatoes. Then add:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Place in a greased 2 quart dish.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1 cup pecans
Sprinkle topping and bake 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Enjoy!
I’ve tasted the version with the nuts at Miriam’s. It is delicious. She calls it “sweet potato suffle,” I think. And I think the recipe originated in Alabama, where her husband is from. Southern cooking is wonderful in general. But so is Texan and Mexican and Tex-Mex! I love your recipes.
Those look soo good!!! bravo!

P.S. I chose you for the Stylish Blogger Award!
Even the adorable serving dish doesn’t make me want it. But this? Is something my husband would go crazy for!
My mom used to make an awesome sweet potato pie with marshmallows on top but I’ve never been able to duplicate the recipe and it was never written down. I’ll have to check this one out and BTW, your serving dishes are so pretty.

Two thumbs up over here for this recipe! And that’s no easy feat! DE-licious. (Gotta admit, though, Mom made it without the nuts because we’re mostly food-without-nuts people.) 🙂
Carly, Oh I’m so glad you guys liked it! 🙂
