  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 16 ounces Italian pork or chicken sausage links, cut into small rounds

  • 2 cups finely chopped kale leaves

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¼ cup flour

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • ¾ cup shredded Gruyere cheese

  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Grease the foil and set aside.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and Italian sausage. Stir to coat. Cook for a few minutes until starting to brown and then move everything around. Repeat until the sweet potatoes and sausage both have golden brown exteriors.

  3. In a bowl, combine the sweet potato and sausage mixture with the kale. Transfer to the lined baking dish.

  4. Bring a 1/2 cup milk to a low boil and then lower the heat to simmer. Whisk in the flour and remaining 1/4 cup milk to form a thick paste. Add the broth, whisking to keep the sauce smooth. Add 1/4 cup Gruyere and stir until melted.

  5. Pour the sauce over the sweet potatoes, kale and sausage in the baking dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted.


Instead of greasing your foil, try Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil.
