Do you need a sweet potato side dish recipe idea? This Sweet Potato Soufflé is a favorite potato casserole at our holiday meals. I asked my husband to describe this recipe and he said, “The butter, eggs and brown sugar enhance the sweet potato experience.”

Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe
My father in law regularly makes this easy sweet potato soufflé for Thanksgiving and Christmas parties. He is a pig and turkey farmer which means he has chores to do every day. He also raises corn and soybeans and is a mechanic. The point is, he’s got a lot to do, so finding a good, easy recipe is important.
Does it matter if you use fresh or canned sweet potatoes?
My father in law uses canned potatoes and his soufflé tastes just fine. My husband made this recipe with fresh sweet potatoes that he boiled and mashed and my husband thought that made the recipe a better version of his dad’s. I don’t want to start something or get in the middle of anything, I’m just laying out the details for you.
I think if too many people in the family end up reading this my husband will be responsible for bringing sweet potatoes to future family gatherings.
We used our basic Corningware 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. We like to use a basic dish and let the amazing flavor of the dish be the star of the show.
Here is another sweet potato recipe that a co-worker gave me several years ago, the Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole recipe. It is delicious and almost tastes like a dessert it’s so sweet!
