Sweet Potato Souffle

Planning our first HUGE Family Thanksgiving dinner.  This year on Thanksgiving we hope to have 50 to 60 family members in attendance.  We're actually going to cook and dine in my church's fellowship hall.  So, while thinking ahead I'm wondering how much Sweet Potato Souffle I should make.  This dish has always been a hit with my children and now my granddaughter likes it too!  Give it a try . . . .


10 large sweet potatoes
2 sticks of butter
3-4 large eggs, beaten
1/4 c sugar
2 greased or sprayed casserole dishes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 

Boil sweet potatoes and remove skin while running under cold water.  Mash potatoes.  Mix in 1 stick of butter at a time and blend.   Beat in eggs and add sugar and continue beating until smooth and fluffy.

Pour into prepared casserole dishes.

  (I usually put a design or initial on the top with a spatula - this year it will be an A for Adison). 

Bake for 45 minutes.
