Since it's Valentine's Day here's a sweet recipe. Soufflé is something of a misnomer here as this is not a traditional soufflé but it's an old family recipe, carrying its name for decades. And it always receives rave reviews. Enjoy!
- Bake or boil 5 good size sweet potatoes. Baking caramelizes the potatoes a bit which adds to the rich flavor of this dish. To bake, wrap potato in foil and place on a foiled baking sheet in case potatoes leak their syrupyness.
Mash potatoes with
- 1 stick butter
- ½ cup white sugar
- 2 beaten eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine well and put in glass baking dish, either 13” by 9” or large round glass dish.
In a med size bowl, mix the topping (tip: it's easier if you mix the flour and pecans, then add the brown sugar)
- ½ cup flour
- 1 cup crushed pecans
- 1 cup brown sugar
Once the flour, pecans and brown sugar are combined add
- ½ stick melted butter
Mix to combine.
- Once combined, spread over the top of the potatoes.
- Bake in 350-400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
- Watch the top as time approaches 30 min as pecans may char. But people love this dish no matter what. Enjoy!
