This casserole is fantastic – it has all the feel of a really good frittata. Because it is baked like a casserole it's also super easy, and you can even prep it up to two days ahead. How easy is that, especially during the holidays?!
The combination of the sweet Italian sausage and the white sweet potato is really delicious. I found this dish filling, satisfying - and best of all - you won't feel like you are missing out on anything at all.
