Meghan’s Corner: Sweet Potato Souffle


Bite of sweet potato souffle

Sweet Potato Souffle

by Meghan E. White


Every cook has a signature dish. It’s the recipe that you get asked to make at each holiday gathering or get together. One of my mom’s iconic dishes at Thanksgiving was sweet potato souffle. Mom started making these wonderful sweet potatoes many years ago after getting the recipe from our pastor's wife. Sweet potato souffle is synonymous with Mom, and Thanksgiving.


Before I experienced the joy of this souffle, I never touched sweet potatoes. Yams with some marshmallows had no appeal to me as a child. Everything changed after the first delicious bite of these delightful sweet potatoes. This is hands down, the best sweet potato recipe.


Even though this is a classic side dish, it really could be a dessert. The sweet potatoes are light and fluffy from the eggs, with plenty of sweetness from the sugar. Toasted pecans and brown sugar on top make the perfect pairing. Sweet potato souffle is scrumptious and a great addition to any celebration.


Happy Eating!


I will praise God’s name with song and exalt Him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30
