My favorite holiday dish on this day of gratitude. It's great any day of the year but goes especially well with cornbread dressing, turkey & giblet gravy.
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, 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
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 (or until medium golden brown in color) at 350 degrees. Enjoy!!!
