Sweet Potato Stuffing is so easy to make and has a bit of magic in every delicious bite. Stuffing is generally made for the holidays, but it can be served with various other dishes all year, such as our air-fried Cornish hen, grilled turkey steak, or baked catfish.

How do you keep stuffing moist?

For this recipe, the sweet potatoes keep the stuffing nice and moist. To keep the filling if you're not using sweet potatoes, adding enough liquid or stock and fat in the form of vegan or regular butter will help keep the stuffing moist. Another way to keep stuffing moist is using lighter breads such as sourdough, white, wheat, or brioche. Also, trim off the crust, as the crust will be hard and chewy when mixed into stuffing.  

Are sweet potatoes healthy for weight loss?

Yes, sweet potatoes are healthy for weight loss. Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and packed with water. So, they help you feel full faster, promoting weight loss.

Is sweet potato a vegetable or a carb?

Sweet potatoes are considered both a root vegetable and a carb, containing 20 grams of carbohydrates in every 100 grams of sweet potatoes. 

Do you peel sweet potatoes before baking?

Peeling potatoes before baking is not necessary and is a personal preference; however, leaving the peel on adds more fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins/minerals including vitamins A, C, and potassium.
