Thanksgiving-In-A-Loaf Bread Recipe

Some recipes use Thanksgiving leftovers, while others preview the holiday. Developer Tess Le Moing says this Thanksgiving-in-a-loaf quick bread is inspired by French gateaux sale, or savory cake.

– 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced (about 1 cup) – 1 tablespoon olive oil – 1 ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, divided – 4 tablespoons salted butter – 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup) – 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme – 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 3 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk, room temperature – ½ teaspoon ground black pepper – 1 ½ cups (about 3 ½ ounces) grated gruyère cheese – ½ cup chicken broth – ¾ cup turkey sausage links, cut into ½-inch slice – ½ cup dried cranberrie – ¾ cup frozen cut green beans, thawed



Heat the oven to 350 F. Lay parchment paper over a loaf pan's sides. Mix sweet potatoes with olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt on a baking sheet.
