Who doesn’t love sweet potatoes? If you don’t then you must exit this page immediately. I love sweet potato but I have a confession to make….I don’t like the pie. I love to make sweet potato souffle more than the pie. I have a quick recipe for you to make your own and when I say your own….this recipe is for one person. I promise you don’t have to share it. I just did a pancake recipe with sweet potatoes too if you want to check that out for a new take on breakfast.
- 1 large or 2 small cooked sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon of granulated sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- ¼ cup pecans
Take one or two (depending on the size I used two) potatoes and bake them until soft. Mash it up until you get about two cups of potatoes.
Mix all of your ingredients above with your mashed potatoes (add egg in last) Pour into a small dish
I use a small glass dish that I have just for me but you can use a ramekin dish Whatever you use grease it or spray it down with pam
Put your pecans on top and bake for about 20 minutes on 350 degrees
You can add marshmallows if you want I hate it but some people love it.
Don’t add this until you have baked the above. Add your marshmallows and then put back in the oven for 10 minutes or until marshmallows are brown.
