Sweet Potato Souffle

"Yummy sweet potato casserole recipe with which I grew up. Nuts are essential to giving it that "crunch", so if you don't like pecans, try walnuts or macadamias or cashews instead."

    When at all possible I like to use unpeeled yams (for taste & nutrition) in dishes like this, & I did the same here (slicing the yams, steaming them & then cutting them into small chunks before mashing them)! Also roasted the pecans before including them in the topping! VERY, VERY NICE TASTING! Thanks for posting your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]

    I made this for Thanksgiving - it was a hit! Perfect flavor as well as smooth (sweet potatoes) and crunchy (topping) textures. I'll definitely be maknig this again.

    Mmm, this was good! I also baked the potatoes and then scraped out the skin. I halved the sugar and the butter in the sweet potato mixture, and it turned out wonderfully. I also added some cinnamon, and sauteed the nuts first in maple syrup. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this for Thanksgiving this year and used canned sweet potatoes. I received lots of compliments. One person even skipped the pumpkin pie and had more sweet pototoes instead. Thanks for sharing!
