Jones Dairy Farm No Sugar All Natural Pork Sausage Roll


Large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-1” cubes (about 5 1/2-6 cups)

1 1/2 tablespoons

Avocado oil, or olive oil, for roasting

Sea salt and black pepper, for roasting

2 tablespoons

Ghee, or coconut oil


Medium yellow onion, chopped

3-4 cloves

Garlic, minced


Large apple or 2 small, chopped

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon

Fresh rosemary, minced

2 teaspoons

Fresh sage, minced

2 teaspoons

Fresh thyme leaves

1 tablespoon

Fresh parsley, minced, plus more for garnish, if desired

1/2 cup

Dried cranberries, apple juice sweetened, for Whole30


Egg, whisked (optional**)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the sweet potato cubes in the avocado oil or olive oil and sprinkle all over with sea salt and pepper.

  2. Spread in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring after 15 for even browning. Roast until toasty on the outside and soft inside.

  3. While the potatoes are roasting, get your other ingredients chopped and ready.


  4. Heat a large skillet over med heat and add the ghee or oil. Once heated, add the onion and cook for about 3 minutes, until soft and fragrant. Add the garlic, sprinkle with sea salt, and continue to cook another minute until soft.

  5. Crumble the sausage into the skillet and use a spoon to break up lumps. Stir occasionally as it cooks. Cook about 5-7 minutes sausage with the onions and garlic until browned.

  6. Add the chopped apples and cook for a minute until just softened. Add the fresh herbs and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Lower the heat and stir to combine all flavors. Simmer for 2 more minutes, remove from heat and set aside.

  7. Once the sweet potatoes are roasted (they should be light brown and crisp on the outside) add them to the sausage mixture along with the dried cranberries, stir to combine. Stir the whisked egg** (if desired) into the mixture and toss/mix to incorporate.

  8. Lower the oven temperature to 400° F. If you use an ovenproof skillet, you can bake the stuffing right in the skillet. If your skillet is not ovenproof, transfer the entire mixture to a 2-3 qt. baking dish and spread out evenly.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes if you did not use the egg, and 25 minutes if you used the egg, or until toasty and set. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving. Enjoy!

  10. **Only use the egg if you want you stuffing to “stick”, otherwise, you can omit and simply bake without the egg.
