So many good foods, so little time. Hurry up Thanksgiving!!

I found this idea at Annie's Eats and cannot wait to try it for Thanksgiving.  Find the recipe and more here.
Portabellos with Herbed Stuffing and Sweet Potatoes
Yield: 6-8 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 12 oz.), peeled and cut into ½-inch chunks
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6-8 portabello mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, diced small
  • 1 stalk celery, diced small
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ tsp. minced fresh sage
  • 3½ cups cubed or torn whole grain bread (crusts removed)
  • ½ cup vegetable stock

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400˚ F.  Add the sweet potato chunks to a baking dish.  Drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Bake until just fork tender, about 12-15 minutes.  Remove from the oven but maintain oven temperature.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Remove the stems from the mushrooms and carefully scrape the gills from the caps with a spoon or paring knife; discard.  Place the mushrooms caps on the baking sheet.  Drizzle each lightly with olive oil.  Roast the caps about 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven, maintaining the oven temperature.
  • While the mushrooms are baking, add about 2 teaspoons of olive oil to a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and celery to the pan and saut√© just until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the thyme and sage and cook 1 minute more, until fragrant.  Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  • Gently stir in the bread cubes, vegetable stock, and sweet potatoes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Mound a portion of the stuffing mixture into each mushroom cap.  Return the pan to the oven and bake 15 minutes more, until the stuffing is golden brown.  Serve immediately.
