  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • a dash of salt
  • 1 premade pie crust optional


  • This souffle can be made with or without a crust. If using a premade pie crust, bake/prep the pie crust according to the directions.
  • Boil sweet potatoes until tender, cool and remove skin.
  • Puree or mash the sweet potatoes to a smooth consistency. I used a ricer to ensure the consistency was smooth.
  • Add sugar, milk, butter, egg, vanilla and salt.
  • Mix.
  • Pour into greased 2 quart baking dish.
  • If using a pie crust, pour the mixture into the prepped pie crust.

  • Bake for 40 minutes, 350 degrees.


The ricer is a great tool to produce truly smooth mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes. The tool is particularly helpful with sweet potatoes due to the sweet potato strings which are an inherent part of the potato and need to be separated and removed.
The ricer does take extra labor, but the effort is rewarded with a silky smooth consistency.
