Move over old recipe!

I am always trying new recipes and tweaking them to just the perfect way before I put them in my own personal recipe lists. I thought that I had a perfect sweet potato casserole recipe...before I tried this one. Superb, a must try b/c it was easier, faster, and better tasting than my previous recipe. (And I even forgot to add the butter!)

Christmas dinner

I made this for our family Christmas as an alternative to the traditional sweet potatoes. If I make it again, I will definatley be adding more spices as the taste was very bland.

I find the canned sweet potatoes way tooo sweet. I bake fresh sweet potatoes wrapped in aluminum foil at 400 until a fork comes out clean (about 30 min). You can add more brown sugar for your own taste. I also add golden rasins, coconut flakes and pecans to my souffle as well as 1/4 C of kulua. Then add either pecans or marshmallows on the top.

Fabulous dish, super easy and a huge hit with the family....we made with fresh sweet potatoes as we had a bumper crop this year and I may need to plant even more for next year so I can make this more often.....
