Sweet Potato Souffle

This was Nate's request for a Thanksgiving side-dish. I actually have been really into sweet potatoes lately so I was happy to make this! Also this sounded like it was going to be great with our ham.

For the most part, I followed THIS RECIPE from All Recipes.

Sweet Potato Souffle

3 cups mashed sweet potatoes (baked 4 sweet potatoes for about 50 minutes wrapped in foil, let cool, peeled and mashed)

1/2 cup milk
1 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
