Hi, friends! With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away, I thought I’d share a recipe sure to be a hit at your table this year. My favorite dish ever for Thanksgiving is sweet potato fluff. This recipe will satisfy any sweet potato lover’s appetite, but you may need to double the recipe to make sure you have enough. Everyone is going to want seconds!
I’ve always loved sweet potatoes, and couldn’t wait to get my fill of sweet potato pie on Thanksgiving holidays. I’m not sure why I ever decided to cook this dish myself, because my dad can make the best sweet potato pies around, but I’m so glad I did. I discovered this recipe in my church’s cookbook over 15 years ago, and I’ve never looked back. This Sweet Potato Fluff recipe has now become a family favorite of ours and my hubby gets so excited when he walks in the door and smells it cooking.
Ingredients for this recipe:
- 2 cups sweet potatoes
- 2 eggs
- 1 stick of margarine
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
Place the stick of margarine in a microwave-safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds. Add sweet potatoes, eggs, vanilla and white sugar and mix well. Pour into a buttered casserole dish. In a small bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup of margarine and brown sugar and mix well. Spread on top of the potato mixture. Cook at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Isn’t that a beauty? The crusty brown sugar topping is super sweet and oh-so-good! I have experimented with this recipe in the past and used Splenda in the place of white sugar. It’s not as good as the original, but it’s a close second. Feel free to make adjustments to this recipe to accommodate your tastes and dietary needs. Maybe add cinnamon or chopped walnuts? It’s up to you!
My thanks goes out to Ms. Helen for placing her amazing recipe in our church cookbook so many years ago. Now you can enjoy it, too! Print out the recipe below and give it a try today. I bet you’re going to love it as much as my family and I do. You’ll find yourself making this tasty dish throughout the year and not just on Thanksgiving.
