Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and with the holiday season comes a flurry of fall-themed recipes that will no doubt flood the internet.
It can be fun scrolling through your phone looking for new recipe ideas. But, if you are anything like us, that quickly leads to falling into a black hole of craft projects, DIY decorations, and life hacks. We’re looking at you, Pinterest! The next thing you know, hours have gone by, and you still are not any closer to coming up with a solid menu plan for the big day. Allow us to fill one of your side-dish slots with our favorite fall side dish: sweet potato soufflé with a spiced pecan crumble!
Sweet Potato Soufflé
This dish offers the same sweetness that you would get from the more traditional candied yams, but is balanced by the addition of the spiced crumble on top. We blended cooked sweet potatoes (pro tip: cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave to really speed up the process) with eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and spices until creamy, then spread it into a baking dish. The topping is a mixture of chopped pecans, brown sugar, butter, fresh sage, garlic, and — wait for it — bacon! It gets a slight kick from chili powder and cayenne, but these can easily be omitted if your crowd prefers a milder flavor. The result is the perfect mix of sweet and savory, and we promise that you will have to guard your plate from topping stealers…it is that addictive!
