Morsels of Life - Sweet Potato Sausage and Kale Casserole - Savory sausage cooked up with sweet potatoes and tomatoes, then combined with kale.

After seeing this recipe from Gimme Some Oven, I knew I wanted to make it. I knew I had sweet potatoes on hand, so I just had to persuade James to get some kale. Once I got all the materials, I realized I didn't actually want a soup. Looking at the materials, I thought it'd work without adding water since the tomatoes have lots of moisture - so I guess we'll call it a sweet potato, sausage, and kale dish? Can it qualify as a casserole even though it's not baked?

How do you define a casserole?

  1. You need to put it in the oven for it to be a casserole. Adding cheese on top to brown in the oven would make it more unmistakably casserole-like. I'd like it the way you posted it though.

  2. Thanks for the clarification, Anna! We liked it the way I made it, but maybe I'll try it with cheese next time. :)

  3. Great idea for kale - looks delicious! (I often turn soup recipes into stews too...) BTW I'm stopping by from Anyonita's "Tasty Tuesdays #37" - AND I'm using kale too this week! (I'm no 23)

    1. Let me know what you think! Another alternative is to use spinach, although you'd cook that for a lot shorter time. Thanks for hosting. :)
