Gourmet Sweet Potato Souffle

I can't believe Thanksgiving is in just 18 days!
I don't know about all of you but I LOVE Thanksgiving!!
Especially this year, being preggo & all that food! LOL
Seriously though I do love it.

Everyone joining together to celebrate everything they are thankful for!
All the delicious food!
And just spending time w/family & friends!

We usually eat @ my mom's then after we will head on over to my hubby's side of the family.
Hubby will probably be working this year :( because the restaurant is open.
Hopefully he will at least be out by 2.

Anyway, of course I've started thinking about all the wonderful food to have/make.
Today's recipe will be for Gourmet Sweet Potato Souffle.
I first made this 2 years ago when hubby & I had Thanksgiving dinner at our house.
I found it on Allrecipes.com.
I love this website, I always look on here for new recipes!

Okay, here's the recipe:

Gourmet Sweet Potato Souffle

Prep Time: 20 min. Ready In: 1 hr. 20 min.
Cook Time: 1 hr. Servings: 16

3 1/2 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled & diced
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
5 eggs

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over med.- high heat. Add sweet potatoes, cover & cook until soft, about 10 min. Drain & set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2 quart souffle dish. Sprinkle dish w/1 tablespoon white sugar, shaking dish to evenly coat bottom & sides.

3. Place the sweet potatoes into the bowl of a food processor. (I just use a hand mixer) Add the butter, 3/4 cup sugar, heavy cream, eggs, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla & salt. Process until mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared souffle dish.

4. Bake the sweet potato mixture in preheated oven for 20 min. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

5. Bake the sweet potato mixture until edges are slightly browned, about 40 min. more. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Let me just tell you that my family absolutely LOVES this dish!
My brothers & brother-in-law fight over whatever is left, it's hysterical!!
It's also still really good the next day reheated w/all your other Thanksgiving leftovers!!
It is sooo yummy!
You just have to try this one!!
If any of you out there do end up trying it I would love for you to let me know what you thought about it!!
