Carrot Soufflé {or Sweet Potato Soufflé}

Carrot Soufflé {or Sweet Potato Soufflé} | From Leesh and Lu's Recipe Box


This kind of recipe is my favorite. It tastes like dessert but can be classified as a side dish/vegetable at the dinner table.  My sister-in-law made this for our family for Thanksgiving a few years ago, and it's a favorite! It's been added to the must-have list for Thanksgiving dinner.  The rest of the list includes, turkey, homemade rolls, stuffing, cranberries (raw & cooked), whipped potatoes and gravy, gourmet green beans, cranberry cream salad, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and chocolate mousse pie. (I'll be sharing some of these other recipes soon)

We started getting a bountiful basket a few months ago and we got tons of carrots, and they were huge, like the size of a butternut squash or over grown zucchini.  As I was brainstorming what to make, this recipe came to mind, and I had to get it from my sister-in-law.  It was as good as I remembered!  My husband, myself, and our little 3 year old gobbled it all up!  

I hope you enjoy this, during the fall or for Thanksgiving dinner. Or anytime of year, really! :)
