Tailgate Thursday {sweet potato and sausage strata}

The Pirates haven’t been on a winning streak this season.  And because of our record, we’ve been playing in the noon time slot more weeks than not at home.  Honestly, I don’t really mind the early start time.  We head to Greenville fairly early, enjoy a few mimosas and a little food and we’re home in time for dinner.  It’s kind of perfect and totally shows my age.

Anyways, a few weekends ago I made a sweet potato and sausage strata for Big Guy and me to enjoy on Saturday and it turned out better than ever.  It’s a little sweet, it’s a little savory and it’s absolutely perfect for the holiday season.  The strata can be assembled in advance and simply bring to room temperature and bake in the morning.  This recipe could also easily be doubled or tripled if you have a crowd to feed.

I used turkey breakfast sausage instead of chicken (due to what our grocery store offered) and that’s the only change I made in the recipe.  I loved the texture that the sweet potato chunks gave to the dish and the addition of the maple syrup paired with the flavors of the sausage was perfection.

This recipe is a keeper!
