I'm sharing one of my family's favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I posted it a few years ago, but it's time for a repost. It's my favorite dish. Turkey and dressing just doesn't taste the same without this on the plate. I used to take it to work for holidays and had men proposing to me after tasting it. Ha! Seriously, it's a real winner. If you need more, just double it. I find that it works best, though, making the recipe individually, twice, in two separate containers.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! ~Marion
Mama's Sweet Potato Soufflé
3 cups mashed sweet potatoes (I used canned yams, but you can use fresh)
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (you can also add nutmeg if you like)
1/2 teaspoon cardamom (my secret ingredient)
½ cup butter or margerine, melted
Mix the above ingredients well using electric mixer and pour into oven-safe casserole dish.
TOPPING: (mix in separate bowl)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans (or walnuts)
1/3 cup butter or margerine
Melt butter in mircrowave. Mix all topping ingredients together with a fork. It will be crumbly. Sprinkle mixture evenly over top of casserole mixture. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown on top. Enjoy!!!
