friends. gals and guys alike. i have a delicious recipe for you today. it makes me sad that the only credit i can take is that i made it and it tasted good.
the recipe comes to us today by way of pinch of yum. it's the every so tasty sweet potato + kale  + sausage bake with an unreal cheese sauce made with gruyere cheese.

i still cannot pronounce gruyere. my mouth gets all twisted and awkward and it sounds like i'm gagging.

regardless...visit pinch of yum. pin the recipe...then head back over here and i'll tell you how i made it and you can look at my less beautiful pictures. (seriously...i'm shamed.)

a few notes | my farmer loved it. my turtle loved it. i loved it. the leftovers, i was told, actually tasted better than fresh from the oven. it has been requested i make this weekly. we'll see.

ingredients list
2 tbsp olive oil
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 chicken sausages from costco sliced in 1/4 inch rounds. (pinch of yum calls for italian pork or chicken sausage.)
2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
3/4 shredded gruyere cheese (i used well over a cup and it was amazing. no complaints.)
2 cups finely chopped kale

1 | heat your olive oil on high heat in a large pan and then throw all your sweet potatoes and sausage in there. brown them and ensure they are coated in the oil. they will eventually have a nice, crisp exterior.

you'll then toss in your kale and mix everything together. transfer all these goodies to a 9-inch square baking dish. i used the le creuset casserole dish you see below. please note my farmer got this for me for valentine's day three years ago. it has since sat on our stove every single day of those three years pristine and untouched. just as any beautiful casserole dish should be. farmer was beyond thrilled when he realized he was going to see his gift in action.
2 | preheat your oven to 350ยบ. in a small - medium sauce pan combine the broth and 1/2 cup milk and bring to a boil. once it's boiling turn it down to a simmer. with the remaining 1/4 cup milk in a liquid measuring cup, whisk in the flour to make a thick paste. add this to the saucepan while whisking to keep the sauce smooth. add 1/4 cup gruyere while string until melted.

3 | now that your sauce is deliciously beautiful (and you probably want to drink me, right?), pour it over the sweet potato/kale/sausage baking dish. top all of that with the rest of your cheese and bake it to perfection...or about 10 minutes.

now go enjoy this recipe that looked healthy until you added all that effing cheese.
let's all give three hip hips! to pinch of yum for making our dinner tables a little more interesting. plus she's just so darn cute.
