Sweet Potato Soufflé

Updated: May 18

This is quick and easy recipe. I especially adore the topping. It’s crunchy and sweet and I think you need that bit of texture for this dish. I opted not to use canned sweet potatoes as suggested in the original recipe. I also chose not to use canned pineapple.


You can steam the sweet potatoes on a stovetop, or you can do what I did and microwave them. Wash your potatoes and poke holes in them with a fork. Microwave them on high for 5 minutes. Let them sit in the microwave for 2 minutes. With the fork, poke through them again to see if they’re done. If you feel some resistance, microwave them for more 1-minute increments on high until the sweet potatoes are tender.

I can’t find my “traditional” souffle dish, so instead, I just used a casserole dish. Either way, this is a wonderful recipe.
