Sweet Potato Stuffing :

4-5 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

4 tablespoons coconut oil

2 cloves of garlic

salt & freshly ground pepper

4 celery stalks, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, chopped

8 oz. country style pork sausage

2 large eggs, beaten

1/2 cup chicken broth

4 tablespoons dried cranberries

3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Preheat oven to 400° F. On a baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Stick the baking sheet in the oven and roast potatoes until just tender, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat 3 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the celery, onions, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened and beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the sausage and cook through until thoroughly browned.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl along with the roast sweet potatoes and let everything cool for 10 minutes or so. Turn oven down to 375.

Add the beaten eggs, sweet potatoes, garlic,  broth, pecans, cranberries and thyme to the veggie mixture and combine well. Use olive oil to grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until browned, 20 to 30 minutes more.
