1-1/2 cups chopped celery
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon chopped rosemary
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 sweet potatoes (12 ounces each), cooked, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 cup cooked wild rice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13X9-inch pan.
  2. Heat butter in large nonstick pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, garlic, sage, rosemary, ginger and cinnamon, and cook 6 to 8 minutes until softened, stirring occasionally. Transfer to large bowl.
  3. Add potatoes, raisins, stuffing, pecans, white and wild rice, salt and pepper. Toss gently to mix. Drizzle broth over mixture and toss gently to moisten.
  4. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake, covered, 30 minutes until heated through. Uncover and bake 30 minutes more until top is crisped.

For alternative to packaged stuffing, place 7 slices of bread directly on oven racks, and dry in 225°F oven for 1 hour. Cut into cubes before using. Makes about 4 cups.
