Easy Yam Souffle is not your typical yam souffle. It’s savory with delicious Gruyere cheese, eggs, and sage.
This recipe and the giveaway included in this post is sponsored by Melissa’s Produce. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that make A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures possible.
Yam versus sweet potato is a question that most people ask. We have canned yams. We have sweet potatoes. There’s also that tuber like thing that people call a yam that’s more like yucca than potato. I honestly think the whole thing is a grey area.
And don’t get me started on all the purple potatoes!
All I know is Melissa’s Produce calls these yams so that’s what I’m calling them. They’re not quite sweet potato and they’re not like a yucca. Yes, I’ve had yucca fries. They’re really good and more like a potato than sweet potato. So, there’s that.
These are long and thin like a yam but had pink flesh like a sweet potato. They sort of tasted like a sweet potato, but as sweet potato-y as sweet potatoes. If that make sense. I’m sure it doesn’t but I’m trying. It’s not easy to explain.
You can see them in the back there. They’re super long. Like 8 to 10 inches long. Not like any sweet potato I’ve ever had. It took only two of them to make 4 cups of mash. Two. They’re that huge.
I received a variety of produce from Melissa’s Produce. There was Meyer lemons, which I love to bake with. Also in the box were sunchokes along with some Dutch potatoes, these potatoes, and a nice butternut squash. I think there was something else, but I can’t remember what.
A couple of the Meyer lemons went into the scones I shared earlier this week. They are so good. You should try them. The Dutch potatoes became some roasted potatoes and some delicious potato salad. You can’t beat those little gems in a potato salad. The squash is still in the pantry for later and the sunchokes are in the fridge because I haven’t been inspired as to what to make with them. Because I’ve never had the before.
- 4 cups mashed, cooked yams
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Combine the cooked yams with the cream in a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until creamy.
- Add the eggs, one at a time and then add the spices. Beat until creamy and combined.
- Fold in the Gruyere cheese.
- Spray a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
- Pour the mixture into the casserole and bake at 425 for 30 to 35 minutes or until puffed and slightly browned on top.
- Cool about 5 to 10 minutes. It will lose quite a bit of puffiness but will still be light and delicious.
