Melinda Cooks for One (or Two) ~ Sweet Potato Soufflis

4 t sugar, divided
1 large sweet potato
(about 12 oz.), peeled and cubed
1 t lemon juice
1/2 to 3/4 t salt
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1 T butter or margarine
4 t all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup mini marshmallows

Grease two 2-cup souffli dishes or custard cups; sprinkle each with 1/2 t of sugar. Set aside. Place sweet potato in a saucepan; cover with water. Cover and cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes; drain well. Add lemon juice, salt and nutmeg. Mash potato mixture (should have about 1 cup); set aside to cool. In another saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour and remaining sugar until smooth. Gradually add milk; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat. Beat egg yolks in a small bowl; stir in mashed potato. Combine potato and milk mixtures; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; gently fold into potato mixture. Spoon into prepared dishes. Top with marshmallows. Bake, uncovered, at 350: for 35-38 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve immediately. 2 servings.
