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.
