Sweet Potato Recipe Idea

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!

We have several other potato recipes that are very good too:  Farmhouse Loaded Baked PotatoesCrockpot Loaded Red Potatoes, and Easy Creamy Mashed Potatoes.  We hope you enjoy these potato recipes as much as we do!
