Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Callout:

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

Instead of following the directions for the sauce I just made a basic white sauce and added cheese (brown 2 T butter with 2 T flour and whisk in 2 cups milk when thickened I added extra sharp cheddar and parmesan). I poured the sauce over the kale sausage and sweet potatoes and baked uncovered for 30 minutes. It came out bubbly cheesy and absolutely delicious. I added onion and used ground italian sausage instead of links. I also sprinkled some garlic powder over the mixture before pouring in the cheese sauce. Read More

The whole family loved this! I did double the Kale and added an extra sweet potato. Next time I'll add even more Kale. Make sure you use heavy duty foil. Read More

Not having the exact ingredients I improvised. Johnsonville Italian Brats yellow gold potatoes mozzarella & cheddar. My kids devoured it! Even my picky 7 year old. I sliced and fried the sausage sliced and baked the potatoes combined potatoes sausage and kale. Made a white sauce with mozzarella poured it over the top and sprinkled with a bit of cheddar. My family of 6 an 11x15 casserole = a great dinner! Read More

I noticed recipe didn't mention any seasonings so I tossed 1/4 of a red onion in while the sweet potatoes and sausage was browning along with sea salt. Then chopped 2 cloves of garlic and tossed the kale cooked sweet potatoes and cook sausage together before adding it to the pan. Substituted Progresso Tuscany chicken broth for more flavor. My 9 year old vowed not to ear it until she tasted it. This was a big win! Read More

Wondra flour would help make sauce prep easier ( no lumps) I took easy clean up route of cooking in foil pan. Read More

I'm one of those that never follows a recipe exactly. So I used yellow potatoes added some cauliflower used cheddar and parm instead of gruyere. I also added a little tomato paste to the sauce because there was an open can in the frig! I used what I had on hand. I put it all in a greased 9 x 9 baking pan without the foil. It was delicious and hearty. A very flexible recipe that I will definitely make again. Bon appetite! Read More

I used ingredients I had on hand which included ground sweet Italian turkey sausage sharp Cheddar and Parmesan. Since some reviewers stated it needed seasoning I added chopped onion salt black pepper and garlic powder. I made the same cheese sauce as gthang using 1 cup sharp Cheddar and 1/4 cup of Parmesan. I cooked the sweet potatoes onion and sausage on the stove just until the sausage was no longer pink. Therefore I baked it for 30 minutes. I will make it again. However next time I think I'll add an additional seasoning (like Basil or Rosemary)? Read More
