    1.5 cups chopped raw onions
    0.5 cup diced celery
    2 cups chopped apples (I prefer granny smith)0.5 cup water (can substitue apple cider, but tastes great regardless)
    4 slices whole wheat bread (or 2 cups bread (your choice) crumbs) (toasted and crumbled)
    0.5 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
    0.5 tsp salt

Directions

Cover sweet potatoes in water, bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer till tender (20 mins). Drain. Peel and discard skin, and mash potatoes in a large bown. Heat 2 tbsp 'I can't believe it's not butter' in a large pan on medium high heat. Add onions, celery, salt and pepper. Cook stirring often for about 5 mins. Add apples, water and spices, continue cooking and stirring for 3-4 mins. Stir mixture and bread crumbs into sweet potatoes. Adjust seasonings and moisture as needed with broth. Use as is as a stuffing, or place in sprayed 9X9 baking dish and dot with remaining 0.25 cup ICBINB (use less as desired). Bake at 350F for 20 mins until golden brown. Makes about 8-1 cup servings or 16-half cup servings. (nutritional info is shown for 8-1 cup servings) (I found this in a newspaper last year and made it slightly modified which turned out great. I think the original recipe came from the Joy of cooking or some other cookbook I can't remember right now)

    LOVE this dish! I made it for Thanksgiving and C-mas this year, and it was a family favorite both times. There were no leftovers either time, and I'm trying to figure out how to fit this into my weekly recipe rotation. It's good, and it's easy to make. - 12/31/07

  • Very flavorful. I only had one apple (someone ate one) so I used a pear instead and it was really good! - 11/24/11

  • Have made this several times for my family and guests, a great alternative to traditional stuffing. I make it so the vegetarians can enjoy it. Also I do lean more heavily on the savory spices rather than the sweet ones, adding ground sage and cutting back on the cinnamon and nutmeg. - 11/22/11

  • I'll definitely be trying this recipe. It'll make a great alternative to Skirlie (a Scottish oatmeal, suet & onion mix, cooked as you have indicated for this recipe). Though I'll have to have both available. - 11/17/10

  • I am going to try this tomorrow. If it's as great as I think it's going to be, I plan to serve it to my extended family on Thanksgiving Day 2010. Thanks for sharing! - 11/16/10

  • Love the apples and sweet potato. I also add 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup walnuts. Excellent! - 11/20/08

  • We don't usually like stuffing so I was willing to try something different (and healthier) this year. The sweet potato gave this dish a pleasantly surprising dimension both in texture and flavor. Adult company loved the results (kids - still not interested, although they did try it.) - 11/22/07
