Happy Thanksgiving!

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
2 eggs
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!!!

you've almost sold me on sweet potatoes! but it's your cornbread stuffing recipe i'd love! (i just put up some mashed potatoes to make my mum's stuffing recipe in the morning.)

it's been a while since i've cooked a turkey. our thanksgiving passed a while ago, but the children have their ties to the states, and james is here. so, tomorrow, it will be a feast. and a time to give thanks.

love to you and ray, marion, and all those babies))
