Yield 10 servings 1x


  • 1 lb. ground mild Italian sausage
  • 3.5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into half-inch cubes (skin on)
  • 2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, cut into half-inch cubes (skin on)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced in half and then thinly sliced
  • 2 small honey crisp apples, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced thyme
  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 12-oz. bag store-bought stuffing (we used Pepperidge Farm)
  • 3.5 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into thin pads


  1. First, preheat oven to 375ºF and spray a 9×13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Next, partially brown the Italian sausage over medium/high heat. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until there is a little pink left. Then, transfer the sausage into the casserole dish.
  3. In the same pan, add 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil. Add sweet potatoes, Yukon potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook for 3-5 minutes to partially cook. Then, transfer potatoes into the casserole dish.
  4. In the same pan, caramelize your onion. Add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil. Then, add in thinly sliced onion and cook over low/medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until the onions are translucent and caramelized.
  5. Transfer caramelized onions into the casserole dish and then add apple, fresh herbs, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, and stuffing. Mix everything together.
  6. Next, mix together beef broth and Worcestershire sauce and then pour the liquid over the stuffing and mix again.
  7. Finally, place thin pads of butter on top of sausage stuffing and bake at 375ºF for 35-45 minutes, uncovered, until the top is golden brown and it is firm to the touch.
