Due to the use of heavy cream, even though the dish was nice it turned out to be heavy on the stomach. If this recipe is being followed, we would suggest light lunch. This is more like a sweeter replacement of fluffy mashed potatoes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish and set aside.
  • Peel and chop the sweet potatoes (you should have around 10 cups). Place in a large pot, cover with water, and boil until tender (about 7 minutes, depending on the size). Drain well, return to the pot, and mash the potatoes. You should have around 4 cups of mashed sweet potatoes.
  • Whisk granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, cream/milk, melted butter, vanilla and salt. Add the egg mixture and the mashed sweet potatoes to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a food processor. Mix with a hand mixer (or process with a food processor) until the mixture is smooth and combined. Pour the potatoes into the baking dish.
  • Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and pecans (use a fork). Add softened butter and use your fingers to blend the butter into the flour mixture until well combined (it should resemble wet sand).
  • Sprinkle the topping over the sweet potato mixture and bake in the middle of the oven for 30-40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown
  • Serve it at room temperature alongside Turkey.

This one is definitely the tastiest one but it is way too heavy as a side and the pecans really gives it more of a tart vibe than souffle.
