Christmas comfort food – that’s what I call yams and apples with warm spices, layered with grilled sausages. Make it a few days before your celebration, and pop it in the oven to heat through when you wake up. It will be ready for brunch after your Christmas morning festivities.
2 sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), baked
1 package Aidells Chicken & Apple Sausage
1/4 c. butter
1/2 tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg
1/4 tsp. each ginger and coriander
2 Tb. pure maple syrup
Salt to taste
Peel and cube sweet potatoes and set aside. Slice sausage and cook according to package directions. Dice apples and saute in butter with maple syrup and spices. Combine all ingredients in a covered casserole dish. If desired, refrigerate for use at a later time. An hour before serving, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake casserole for 45 minutes, or until heated through.
