Sweet Potato Stuffing is my twist to a grain free stuffing type side dish. One of my many favorite side dishes during the holiday seasoning is stuffing. Not just plan stuffing but I like to add sausage to mine, use fresh parsley. Last year I was making a big batch of my Sausage Sweet Potato and Kale Hash and came to the realization I loved it so much because it tasted like stuffing!
Every holiday I usually make a triple or quadruple batch, not because I have to feed a lot of people, I just love it. Even if we are not hosting dinner, I always make a big thanksgiving meal so I can safely enjoy not only the meal, but leftovers for days to come! (I have celiac disease) I am a creature of habit and love to mix everything in one bowl and top it with the Gravy I made from Turkey drippings.
After a few days though all the grains start to irritate my stomach. Therefore, I decided to try to make a grain free stuffing. My breakfast Sausage Sweet Potato and Kale Hash already tasted like stuffing. I just made a few minor adjustments and came up with this twist. Why reinvent something that is already amazing? You can use any sausage but the combination of flavors in this recipe is my favorite!
Like my Sausage Sweet Potato and Kale Hash I cook it in my Dutch oven. If you don’t have a dutch oven you can use a regular pot and lid. You will have to adjust you cooking times/stirring times accordingly. Make sure to keep you temperature low so it does not burn on the bottom (lesson learned a few times)
Sweet Potato Stuffing is easy to make. You start by browning the sausage in oil. While the sausage is browning you chop the sweet potatoes into cubes, dicing the celery and onion. Once sausage is done add all the remaining ingredients into you Dutch oven. Cover and cook for ** minutes over low heat. I usually stir it every 7-10 minutes.
In case you were wondering my favorite brand is Gillian’s Gluten Free Stuffing. This is the first gluten free stuffing I tried and it is still my favorite! I have tried other Gluten Free brands but they are not the same.Print
