Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Line your baking dish with Reynolds Wrap®Aluminum Foil for quick and easy cleanup.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (3–4 cups)
  • 16 ounces Italian pork or chicken sausage, cut into small rounds
  • 2 cups finely chopped kale
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Grease the foil and set aside.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and Italian sausage. Stir to coat. Cook for a few minutes until starting to brown and then stir. Repeat until the sweet potatoes and sausage both have golden brown exteriors.

Step 3

In a bowl, combine the sweet potato and sausage mixture with the kale. Transfer to the lined baking dish.

Step 4

Bring a1/2 cup milk to a low boil and then lower heat to simmer. Whisk in the flour and remaining 1/4 cup milk to form a thick paste. Add the broth, whisking to keep the sauce smooth. Add 1/4 cup Gruyère and stir until melted.

Step 5

Pour the sauce over the sweet potatoes, kale and sausage in the baking dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted.

Recipe Tip

Instead of greasing your foil, try Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil.
