How to Make Sweet Potato Souffle with Marshmallow Topping

Betty's Kitchen demonstrates a recipe for sweet potato souffle that uses a marshmallow topping.


  • If the sugar content of the original souffle is too high, you can remove the mini marshmallows from the recipe and simply serve the souffle.
  • If you'd like to add a bit more sweetness, you can garnish the top of the souffle with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
  • Add a bit of island flair by including raisins and shredded coconut in the souffle mix before baking.[5]
