Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chicken Sausage & Apples

A hearty, flavorful twist on classic twice-baked potatoes, this scrumptious side gets its magic from sneakily healthy, savory chicken and apple sausage.

Course: Side
Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallot
  • 2 smoked chicken and apple sausage links chopped
  • 1/2 cup peeled diced apple
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1/2 cup shredded skim mozzarella


  • Prick holes in sweet potatoes, place on a microwave-safe plate, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender. When potatoes have slightly cooled, cut in half lengthwise, scoop flesh into a large bowl, and mash. Reserve sweet potato skins.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet and cook shallot for 3-5 minutes or until softened, add sausage and apple and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Combine with mashed sweet potato, sage, and salt. Add ¼ cup cheese and stuff mixture back into sweet potato skins.
  • Top each with remaining 1 TB shredded cheese. Bake in 350 oven for 10-15 minutes to heat mixture through and melt cheese.


Feel free to substitute other flavors of pre-cooked chicken sausage such as apple and sage, sweet Italian, or plain.
