Sweet Potato Souffle

Sweet Potato Soufflé

4-5 good quality sweet potatoes

2 eggs

1/2 cup half and half

1-2 tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon rum extract

Peel and cube the sweet potatoes.

Add to a pot of boiling water and boil for approximately 20-30 minutes or until tender.

While the potatoes are boiling, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

When potatoes are done, drain and mash (either by hand or in an electric mixer).

Add half and half, vanilla and rum extract, eggs, flour, and spices, mix with electric mixer until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a soufflé dish or casserole dish and top with streusel mix, then top with 1/4 cup walnuts (pecans are good too)

Bake for about 1 hour

Streusel Mix

1 stick melted salted butter

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix together until crumbly, then top sweet potatoes with this and then top with nuts.

Note: no marshmallows on this, down here
in the South , using them on sweet potatoes constitutes blasphemy
