Sweet Potato Souffle Reviewed

 All time favorite side dish for Thanksgiving is my families' Sweet Potato Souffle. Light, fluffy and just darn yummy! Serve it as a side dish or serve it for dessert - this recipe is just that flexible.

A very easy recipe and no worries about the "Souffle" in the title as this is a quasi souffle and is a no fail recipe. As older family recipes tend to roll, real butter and whole milk is used.

How To Make Sweet Potato Souffle


3 sweet potatoes

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup milk

1 beaten egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup melted butter

a dash of salt


350 degrees, serves 6-8

  1. Grease a two quart glass baking dish.
  2. Boil sweet potatoes until fork tender. Cool.
  3. Peel the sweet potatoes.
  4. Mash the sweet potatoes to a smooth consistency. I use a ricer to ensure the potatoes are very smooth in consistency.
  5. Add the sugar, milk, butter, egg, vanilla and salt.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Pour sweet potato mixture into the baking dish.
  8.  Bake for 40 minutes, 350 degrees.

Serve as a side dish or dessert! Sprinkle with raisins or nuts for an optional, but fun twist. This sweet potato dish pairs well with holiday ham too! Enjoy...

  1. This sweet potato souffle sounds yummy, Tracey. I know that sweet potatoes are a classic dish in some parts of the country, particularly the South. It's not a Thanksgiving dish I grew up with in the northeast. Funny how different foods became popular in different parts of the country and what is traditional for some is not part of the menu for others. :) Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Love the way regional dishes travel for the holidays! Happy Thanksgiving Elf!

  3. The sweet potato casserole is a Thanksgiving tradition in our home too. It is our son's favorite holiday dish. The only differences I see in your souffle recipe and my casserole, is the egg and I also add a layer of marshmallows on the top. I am certain your souffle is delicious! We do love our sweet potatoes!

  4. This was always one of my favorite holiday side dishes. Like Sylvestermouse, we always used to top our Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole with a layer of gooey, browned mini marshmallows that made it extra yummy. Thanks for sharing your recipe for it!

  5. This sounds delicious!We love sweet potatoes so would certainly enjoy this dish. I like the idea of sprinkling with nuts as well. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe.

  6. Sweet Potatoes is something that we rarely eat in our household. Maybe if my hubby saw this, he just might try it. Sounds interesting to me! Thanks Tracey!
