The Saturday before Christmas I decided it was time to start an elimination diet. Yes, before Christmas. Worst possible time to start one, but both of my boys suffer from terrible eczema & my 5 month old was suddenly covered head to toe in the weepy, yucky rash. Over the past 2+ years, I've tried every 'eczema cure' thrown my way, and I've come to the realization that food really is our most important medicine.
This dish is savory, sweet, and perfect for a morning get together, though I can attest to the fact that it's great at dinner time too! It was just the thing to bring to this mornings MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting, and I made a second casserole dish to serve my family this evening. Both casseroles were gone in minutes! Here's the recipe...
Simple Sweet Potato & Sausage Casserole
[10 minute prep, 1 hour cook time. Preheat oven to 350 degrees]
4-5 Sweet Potatoes, cubed 1 lb sausage, cooked 2 organic apples, cubed Cinnamon Maple Syrup
Begin by cooking your sausage in a medium sized pan until slighty crispy. While the sausage is cooking, cut up your sweet potatoes and apples. Mix the sweet potatoes, apples and cooked sausage into a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with raw maple syrup. Lightly mix within the dish, and then once again sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with syrup.
Place in preheated oven (350 degrees) for 45 min to 1 hour, or until sweet potatoes are soft when forked.
