Easy Cranberry Souffle

Need a new take on “Cranberry Sauce” this year?? Well this, my friends it JUST what the doctor ordered!

My Aunt Lynn introduced me to this recipe (shout out Auntie Lynn!!) and it’s a constant request for every Thanksgiving (and Christmas) meal!

Everyone LOVES it…

It’s is another one of those “let’s just ignore the calorie count on this one” recipes, but come on now… it’s THANKSGIVING. You could probably cut out some of the sugar in the cranberries to “lighten it up”, but hey, why fix something that ain’t broken??!

Now, this is FAR from your ordinary cranberry sauce outta a can (don’t get me wrong – i’m totally a fan of that!), but THIS is just so much more… it’s like a whole new level of greatness! This Cranberry Souffle could probably be more accurately described as a Cranberry Cobbler (or Crisp) because HELLO – it could pass for dessert people!

No joke, if you have leftovers (pshhh what are those?!), you could LEGIT heat it up and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

It. is. DE. LIGHT. FUL.

Add this to your menu & thank me later!

    Seriously, calories do not count on holidays! That is what they are for, right? This souffle looks incredible, way better than the ordinary sauce.

    Good thing I bought tons of cranberries to freeze and use throughout the year. My husband loves cranberries in everything: scones, sauce, salad, and anything else sweet i can plug it into.
