I don’t know about you guys but anything that’s “stuffed” is always a plus in my book. Oreo stuffed cookiesquinoa stuffed bell peppers, stuffed portobello mushrooms, cream cheese avocado stuffed puff pastries, and so forth. I love it all! And now, I’ve found something else to stuff: sweet potatoes.

Scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, sweet maple sausage crumbles, and of course, avocados, with oozing melting cheese on top. Yeah, that all gets stuffed in this sweet potato. It’s pretty epic. So epic that I had at least 3 of these.

Okay, I lied. I had 5. But hey, it was worth every single bite and the hour that I spent at spin class!

Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffed sweet potatoes with scrambled eggs, maple sausage, cherry tomatoes and avocado!

10 minutes1 hour, 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 3 large eggs, scrambled
  • 3 maple sausage links
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place potatoes onto a baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 1 hour, or until tender; let cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut each potato in half horizontally, then carefully scoop out the center of the potato, reserving for another use, leaving about 1/2-inch of potato on the skin.
  3. In a medium skillet, add sausage links and cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  4. Add eggs, crumbled sausage, cherry tomatoes and cheese to each potato skin. Place into oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  5. Serve immediately, topped with avocados.

  1. If I leave off avocado, can I freeze these for on the go breakfasts during my work week?

    • Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

  2. can you do this with bacon aswell ? :O

  3. Great idea. Just to be clear, the egg is mixed into the sausage and placed in the potato, raw, right?

  4. You scramble the eggs first, right? Or no??

  7. YUM!!! I love stuffed sweet potatoes 🙂 this looks seriously delicious!

  8. This looks fantastic! Do you have a recipe suggestion for what to do with the potato that was scooped out?

    • I didn’t scoop out that much so I ended up just eating it as is! But you could always use it for a sweet potato-type soup. Hope that helps!
