FEED THE CLAN - A Paleo Family on a Budget

Family Chow 10/28/13 – With Pizza Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Pizza Stuffed Sweet Tators

Breakfast for the girls today was scrambled eggs, a pear, and some banana chips. Lunch was leftover Paleo Pumpkin Chili for all of us. Dinner tonight was absolutely delicious! I know I say that a lot, but it’s true. I love sweet potatoes with sausage. They just go together so perfectly. This is also a lot lighter than regular pizza and pretty darn filling too.

Pizza Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

6 large sweet potatoes (yams)
2.5 lbs pork breakfast sausage
1 1/2 cups marinara (find one without sugar)
1 1/2 cups tightly packed shredded cheese
18 olives, sliced in half
1 bell pepper, diced
2 scallions, diced
1 tbsp grass-fed butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash your sweet potatoes and poke some holes in them. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, or until soft. Remove them from the oven and slice them down the middle. Let them cool for a little bit then smash up the insides. While the potatoes are cooking, heat a large saute pan over medium high heat and cook the sausage until browned, about 20 minutes. Fill each potato with 1/4 cup of marinara, then some sausage, sprinkle with 1/4 cup of cheese, then the olives, scallions and peppers. Turn your oven on to broil and broil for about 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

    Is the recipe for 6 sweet potato halves as in the pic (3 whole potatoes) or 6 whole sweet potatoes?

      Also, 1/8 of marinara sauce would fill 8 half potatoes which would bring it to 4 whole potatoes.
      The recipe looks great and I would love to make it. Sorry to be asking so many questions but I guess I need some extra guidance. Thanks.

        Sorry for the confusion. It’s 6 whole potatoes that are cut down the middle and smashed open a bit to fill with all the good stuff. I fixed the marinara and cheese amounts, but you can use as much or as little as you like really :) I hope you like them if you try them.

    Lovely! I made 4 potatoes (8 halves) and fed my hubby one half (… he doesn’t like sweet potatoes, oh well). He said it’s the best sweet potato dish he’s tasted so far, but the still left me enough for lunch tomorrow and 1 potato to freeze haha.

    But I’m convinced! I made them with salami, mozarella, some green peppers and some pesto (and homemade tomato/pizza sauce). I had a lovely dinner! Thanks for the recipe.
