A Taste of Broadway in Ohio

Nestled in the town of Springboro, Ohio is something unexpected – a dinner theater. La Comedia combines Broadway-style productions with fine dining.

Joe Adkins, the theater’s current producer, has been an integral part of La Comedia for over thirty years. Joe’s brother David bought the theatre in 1995, and the Adkin family loves being part of the unique and wonderful La Comedia history.

Sweet Potato Souffle with Pecans

La Comedia’s most famous dish is probably the sweet potato souffle. This is the most-ordered menu item at the Ohio dinner theater. It’s ideal for the holidays or anytime you want to add something extra special for dinner.

This is a delicious dish and just like the recipe that La Comedia shares freely with everyone. And thanks to the viewer who sent in this recipe for La Comedia Sweet Potato Souffle.

If you enjoy southern sweet potato casserole, you’ll also enjoy this recipe. It’s just a bit more complex than your average home-style sweet potato casserole – but still easy to make.

What’s the Difference Between Sweet Potatoes and Yams?

This is a question that often comes up. The confusion arises because the names sweet potato and yam are commonly used interchangeably. But, in reality, they are two different root vegetables and belong to two different plant families.

The sweet potato is a member of the morning glory family, whereas the yam has the lily as a relative. Yams are larger and sweeter than sweet potatoes and are not as nutritious. Get more information on how to tell sweet potatoes and yams apart and cook each of them properly.

    My daughter-in-law served this at Thanksgiving ელექტრიკი გამოძახებით it was delicious. It will now be served at all our Holiday meals,


  4. PMorrisHTX

    I’ve been making this for the holidays for nearly 40 years and sometimes add leftover carrots. We’ve always preferred ours with much less sugar and began substituting with maple syrup, stevia or very small amounts of Swerve sugar replacement.

    Has anyone come up with a good copycat recipe for the papaya chutney dressing?!?!

    What size pan for the sweet potatoes?


    • Stephanie

      Use a 2-quart casserole dish.


  9. Trisha

    What size pan is used?


  10. Louise

    This is a delicious dish, and the recipe is the same as the one printed on the website. It is the exact same recipe, which LaComedia shares freely to everyone.


  11. Paula Rice

    What about topping with whole pecans like the photo, or ?


  12. Barb Scott

    Hello What is best to use canned yams or sweet potato’s?


    • Stephanie

      I like this best with sweet potatoes.


    • Stephanie

      I have made this both with canned, and freshly baked sweet potatoes, both worth well.


  13. AquaticEmber

    I would love to see someone’s take on La Comedia’s salad dressing: Papaya Chutney Dressing. What makes their salads special are the toasted pine nuts, but I could eat this dressing on EVERYTHING.


    • Liz

      Yes! I’m dying for the chutney recipe! I went back home and my friend brought a bottle up from them and it is fantastic. From salad dressing to dipping french fries and marinating chicken it! If anyone has a recipe like it, I would love to have it!


  14. MotorCityMich

    This is delicious. Made it last year and am making it again this year. Only thing I’d suggest is start at half the sugar and taste as you go. To me, 1 cup was too sweet.


  15. Gail Blevins

    Absolutely Incredible!!!!!!


  16. julie

    how many servings is this?


    • Stephanie

      This makes six to eight servings.


  17. Carol Freeze

    My daughter-in-law served this at Thanksgiving it was delicious. It will now be served at all our Holiday meals, including this Christmas when I will be cooking for twenty-two people.
