Sweet Potato Breakfast Bake

We love Sweet Potatoes and sometimes we grow them in our garden. I had never really thought about having Sweet Potatoes for breakfast until I started on this recipe. The flavor of the potatoes with the sausage and spices is just fabulous. I made this for a weekend brunch when we had house guest and it was a real winner. Next time it was made for a smaller group and the remainder of the dish went into the freezer. It was just as good when we popped it out of the freezer and enjoyed it again. I am excited to share this with you today and hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

  5. What a delicious breakfast casserole, Miz Helen! I love that it uses sweet potatoes - my personal trainer was reminding me this week how good they are for us and how I need to eat more of them! I love that you are able to grow your own. Thank you so much for bringing this tasty breakfast recipe to the Hearth and Soul Hop.
