Cook the Sweet Potatoes
Place a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add sweet potatoes to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.
Stir in pecans, butter, honey, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner.
Transfer sweet potatoes and pecans to prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 12-14 minutes.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
While sweet potatoes roast, start stuffing.
Start the Stuffing
Return pan used to sear potatoes to medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
Add diced ciabatta to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden brown, 3-5 minutes.
Remove bread chunks to a plate.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Finish the Stuffing

Add apples, onions, cranberries, and sage to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Add diced ciabatta, 1 cup water, and mirepoix base. Stir constantly until liquid is almost completely evaporated, 1-2 minutes.
Place pan in hot oven and bake until bread is lightly crisp, 8-10 minutes.
