I have a similar recipe titled "Pumpkin Crunch Souffle " that differs only in a large can of pumpkin puree instead of sweet potatoes. It's outstanding! My recipe goes into the microwave uncovered for 13-15 minutes. If you use pumpkin instead of the potatoes be sure to let it cool off a little while because it will "weep" if it's still too hot. This is great as a side dish or dessert and is just like pumpkin pie but without the crust. You don't even notice the spices are missing! Thanks for posting jaqpink. I live in mortal fear of losing my recipe! Read More

I've made this recipe for years and the family can't imagine Thanksgiving without it. But many years ago I felt it was more like a dessert then a side dish so I adjusted the amount of white sugar and now use between 1/4 to 1/3 cup. Much better! Read More
