Easy Homemade Sweet Potato Souffle Recipe VIDEO

This sweet potato souffle recipe has been in my family for more than 20 years. It is the perfect addition to any holiday gathering as well as any other occasion where a hearty casserole dish is desired. The simple and delicious mix of ingredients wows my family every time!

The potatoes should be fully cooked in the microwave oven (soft when pierced with a fork) before using them in the final recipe.

They can be cooked with the skins on and then cooled completely on a plate; once cooled, the skins can be easily removed. Pierce the potatoes first (on all sides) before cooking.

Blend the first 4 ingredients in an electric mixer; beat well. Stir raisins into mix; pour into a medium-sized casserole dish and cover completely with mini marshmallows. Bake at 350 for approximately 25 minutes (keep uncovered while baking).

This sweet potato souffle recipe can be doubled and used in a large casserole dish where more than 6 guests are expected. My family loves this dish and there are rarely any leftovers after Thanksgiving dinner every year.

They love the unique taste that the addition of the raisins adds to the dish and my children love it when I use colored marshmallows in place of the ordinary white ones! Pecans or walnuts can also be stirred in along with the raisins (before baking).

Sweet Potato Souffle – A Personal Family Favorite 2021

At this time in December, we are at the height of the chestnut season, since chestnuts are harvested from October through March.

Sweet Potato Souffle are tasty, and Pablo Neruda said it right in “Ode to a Chestnut on the Ground,” “falling / offers its sealed-in gifts, / the hidden sweetness / that grew in secret / amid birds and leaves…”

Sweet Potato Souffle trees are tall, between sixty to seventy-five feet. The chestnut seed is enveloped in burr. When the burrs turn earthy brown and crack open, the reddish-brown nuts inside them jump to the ground.

The burrs of a tree usually open all at the same time, and it is not unusual to find the ground under a tree to be covered in chestnuts in a day. If some of the Sweet Potato Souffle falls with their burr intact, hitting them with a stick can do the trick of separating the nuts.

Among all the nuts, Sweet Potato Souffle contains the least amount of fat and the highest amount of starch. As a matter of fact, chestnuts have twice as much starch as potatoes; that is, they are very high in complex carbohydrates.

That must have been one of the reasons for the pilgrims to feast on them when they came to America. Sweet Potato Soufflewere very popularly with the Americans until 1904 when an Asian fungus killed the chestnut trees.

Most of the chestnuts that now appear in the supermarkets in the USA are imported from Italy.
