No!  I would never do that!  I dislike marshmallows on sweet potatos!  It was a 
souffle, not a travesty!

This was/is my recipe:

Sweet Potato Souffle

3 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed 
1/3 cup dry sherry
1 1/2 cups half and half
6 tbsp. butter, melted
3 tsp. orange zest
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup shelled pecans, chopped
6 eggs, separated
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Butter a 2 quart souffle dish. Prepare a Bain Marie by placing the buttered souffle dish in a
baking pan, filled with warm water. Baking the souffle this way helps it to rise and cook 

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingreadients except eggs and pecans and beat until smooth. 
Beat in egg yolks. Fold in pecans.  Set aside.

In a separate large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but still moist. Gently fold egg whites 
into the sweet potato mixture and pour into the souffle dish. Bake for about 45 minutes or until 
light golden brown on top. Serve immediately.

See!  No marshmallows!!! Yeck!!


Remember that while money talks, chocolate sings.
