Sweet Potato Souffle III Recipe
- 6 sweet potatoes
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup chopped pecans
step 1: In a large stockpot, cover sweet potatoes with 1 inch of water; boil for 20 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain, allow to cool and remove skins.
step 2: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or butter one 2 quart casserole dish.
step 3: Place potatoes in a mixing bowl and with an electric mixer, beat on low speed until potatoes begin to break up. Increase speed to medium high and blend until smooth.
step 4: Reduce speed to low and add sugar, milk, butter, vanilla, eggs and salt. Mix well.
step 5: Allow any potato 'fibers' to remain on the beater and remove. Pour sweet potato mixture into the casserole dish.
step 6: Prepare the topping in a small bowl by whisking together the brown sugar, flour, butter and pecans. Sprinkle mixture over potato mixture and bake for 40 minutes.
