If you're not from the Upper Midwest, you may not be familiar with hot dish. Traditionally, it's a casserole of starch (often french fries or tots), meat, and vegetables held together by a creamy sauce. "It's an easy way to feed a crowd," says Molly, "and it's perfect for the dead of winter because it's so hearty and warm and comforting." Her update uses sweet potatoes flavored with Aleppo pepper. To get a head start, you can roast the potatoes and brown the sausage a couple of days ahead.
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, unpeeled and cut into 1/8-in.-thick slices
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons Aleppo pepper (or 1 Tbsp. hot paprika)
8 large eggs
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 ounces reduced-fat white cheddar cheese, grated (about 3/4 cup)
1/2 pound turkey or chicken breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
Est. added sugars 0g
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Toss sweet potatoes and onion with oil and Aleppo pepper; spread into an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until tender.
Place potatoes and onions in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and black pepper. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture; fold in cheese and sausage. Coat a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray; pour in egg mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until set and browned on top. Cool slightly before serving. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon yogurt.
