Sweet Potato Souffle - Dee Dee's

Praline topping and seasoned with just a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon gives this dish the upper hand on the traditional candied yams.

This is one of our favorite holiday recipes. I don't think I could go through Thanksgiving and Christmas without it!

Hope you enjoy as much as we do.
