Ingredients

Ingredients for sweet potatoes and filling:

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 8 oz breakfast sausage , crumbled
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup half and half

Ingredients for cheese sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese , shredded

Extra Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese , shredded, for sprinkling on top

Instructions

Make filling for stuffed potatoes

  1. Bake sweet potatoes at 350 F for 50-60 minutes.  Cool, cut each potato in half, scoop out the middle: you can use either knife or spoon or both.  Set aside 4 potato halves (without the flesh in the middle).  Add the scooped out parts of sweet potatoes to a separate medium bowl, and puree the scooped out parts of sweet potatoes.

  2. Cook sausage in a skillet, drain from fat. Remove to a plate.

  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs and half-and-half. In a separate lightly greased skillet (or the same one that you cooked sausage in), cook eggs just for 2-3 minutes, constantly stirring and flipping – until fluffy and airy.

  4. In the bowl , mix together pureed portion of sweet potatoes, cooked eggs, and cooked sausage.

Cheese Sauce:

  1. Make sauce by combining all sauce ingredients together and heating them on stove for several minutes to melt the cheese.

Assembly:

  1. Pre-heat your broiler.

  2. Place potato halves (you should have 4 potato halves) into broiler proof dish.  

  3. Put some potato-egg-sausage mixture on the bottom of each potato half, put a thin layer of cheese sauce over the potato-egg-sausage mixture. 

  4. Put more potato-egg-sausage mixture on top of the sauce, and add the remaining sauce over it, then sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. 

  5. Broil the potatoes until the cheese is melted on top - for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn sweet potatoes.
