Number of Servings: 8


    2 large sweet potatoes
    2 Tbsp I can't believe it's not butter (or other low-fat/fat free butter/margarine) (up to add'l 0.25 cup if baked outside turkey)
    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
    0.25 tsp black pepper
    0.25 tsp ground cinnamon
    0.25 tsp ground nutmeg


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)

    I made this recipe and it was SOOOO good! It had a great texture and tasted just right. It was sweet and savory at the same time. Definately saving this one =) - 12/3/08

    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

    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
