Sweet Potato Souffle is a velvety mixture of oven roasted sweet potatoes and bananas topped with a crumbly pecan crust. Your friends and family will rave about this flavorful dish!

Today, I’m happy to share  a recipe from my secret family holiday recipe collection –  Sweet Potato Souffle. I’ve made this dish for years during the holidays and for special occasions and it’s insanely delicious. It will have you at the pecan topping! It’s not a real souffle that rises (and falls) in the oven, it’s just an old family recipe that someone named a souffle for some reason.

One of the surprising ingredients is bananas.  Once roasted, bananas are smooth and super sweet, but not sugary. Don’t be alarmed…the peels will turn super dark in the oven, that’s how you know they are done! Once you taste this, you will understand why they are a critical ingredient. 

Even as teenagers my son’s loved this dish, declaring the whole time that they hated sweet potatoes. Go figure? Anyway, that tells me it’s a winner !

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 large sweet potatoes, washed and pricked with a fork
  • 4 bananas, leave peels on
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (2 sticks) room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups pecans, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 Degrees.
  • Butter a large casserole dish and set aside.
  • Prick each washed potato with a fork several times, to allow steam to release. Place the potatoes in a baking pan and roast for about 30 minutes until soft. Larger potatoes will take longer.
  • Remove the sweet potato pan from the oven, and add the unpeeled bananas to the baking pan, with the potatoes. Allow the potatoes and the bananas to roast together on the pan for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are very soft to the touch and the bananas have darkened. Remove the pan from the oven, but leave the oven turned on.
  • When the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, using a spoon, scoop the sweet potato flesh into a large bowl. Add the peeled bananas, 1 stick of the butter, honey, vanilla and salt to the bowl. Beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  • Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the large greased casserole dish and smooth the top with a spoon.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, pecans and remaining stick of butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar and nut mix over the sweet potato mixture and place the casserole in the oven for 20 minutes. The crumbs will be golden brown when the souffle is done. Serve hot and enjoy!
