Martha first tasted this delicious sweet-potato spoon bread at The Elms, a restaurant and tavern owned by Brendan and Cris Walsh in Ridgefield, Connecticut. This recipe, part of Martha's Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu 2007, was adapted from Martha Stewart Living, November 1997.

    This recipe is the best thing to ever happen to a sweet potato. Light, creamy, just sweet enough to go well with savoury food and perfectly spiced. The texture is an luxurious cross between mousse and souffle. It was simple to make and absolutely delicious.

    DELICIOUS. Easy to prepare, just allow enough time in your oven for it to cook thoroughly if you're making this for a holiday. Easily could be a dessert, but it's not too sweet as a side dish. This will definitely become a tradition for me at Thanksgiving!

    Are these the sweet potatoes that the grocery store is calling "yams"? I got confused when I went shopping. I think the grocery store had things labeled wrong. Just want to make sure I'm using the right ingredients.

    I've made this a couple of times. It's wonderful. I like things a little less sweet, so I substituted maple syrup for the honey and added less cinnamon and sugar.

    For the inquiries above, my experience with this recipe: yes you can make a day or two ahead of time. In fact I split the amount to bake some that day and then refrigerated the other half of the 'batter' to be baked a couple days later. Serve with a big serving spoon. I gilded this lily by adding mini-marshmallows (which deserve our respect) after reheating it and placing under the broiler until the marshmallows were golden brown. Um um good. tom | www.tallcloverfarm.com
