Sweet Potatoes & Sausage

A unique flavor combination...surprisingly good.

  • 3/4 lb (3 links) Italian Turkey Sausage
  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 5'' long)
  • 1 TBSP Zero calorie sweetener (white or brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. Bake the sweet potatoes for 1 hour. (You can microwave, but they're not as tender).
  3. While the potatoes cook, heat a large pan to med-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Cut the sausage into bite-sized pieces and cook until brown on all sides. Drain.
  4. Cut potatoes open and scrape out the pulp into a bowl. Discard the skins. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar in the bowl and mash gently with a fork or spoon until combined. Change oven temp to 350.
  5. Spoon the potatoes in the bottom of a 8x8 or loaf pan. Top with sausage and cook at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
Makes 3 servings.
