Twice Baked Sweet Potato With Sausage Stuffing
  • 2 large sweet potatoes per serving
  • ½ pound fresh ground or store bought breakfast sausage (not links)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Brush olive oil over sweet potatoes, place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees until tender, about an hour or so, (this will depend on the size of the potatoes).
  2. Let cool slightly so to handle; cut in half and scoop out meat into a bowl leaving a ¼ inch shell.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, saute sausage until slightly browned and no longer pink, chopping up as it cooks; drain off any fat.
  4. Using only two of the shell halves, divide the sausage into each. Save other shells to sprinkle with a little brown sugar and crumbled, cooked bacon for another tasty treat baked in the oven.
  5. Mash or rice potatoes with a little salt and pepper and divide over top of each shell.
  6. Return to oven under the broiler to reheat and brown a little on top.
