Blueberry Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
So the other day, I went to Whole Foods and grabbed some blueberry breakfast sausage. They were all out of regular breakfast sausage, so we had to settle for the blueberry kind. I wasn’t complaining at all. Have you ever had that kind? It’s fantastic. Anywho, it helped me think up this recipe on the spot. You see, I’ve been creating all these new recipes for my cookbook and it’s sometimes hard to think up new recipes for the blog at the same time. I’m just not that talented. So I’m sorry if you’ve felt as though the blog recipes aren’t as high quality as they could be. Don’t worry. Once the cookbook is all settled, you’ll be able to get those even tastier recipes from my book!
I’m sad. My tan is officially gone. After my trip to Powell, I was pretty damn close to the brown shade in the crayon box. Not really, but kind of. And after weeks of peeling, I’ve become very pale. Probably not paleo to the normal eye, but to my perfected vision, I’m disgustingly pale. I just my blog name literally fits now. Ha. And you know what that means? That means I am forced to wear spandex capris and pants again to cover up my large pale legs. And you know what I forgot about spandex pants and capris? They are hot. Like real, real hot. As soon as I put them on, my ass crack is sweating. No joke. Then I feel like I’m having heat flashes. I’m not ready for menopause yet. I’m just not. Damnit paleness, damnit.
So I figured something out. I really like flying United. I haven’t flown enough in my life to know what the good and bad airlines are, but I know that I LOVE United. They are awesome. You know why? Ok, I’ll tell you. So first of all, they are way more spacious. When the girl next to me got obviously super anxious for our 2 hour flight, her legs began to shake. Like bounce, the move side to side, then she would wiggle while she read the notebook I was writing on. Super polite stuff. So I was quite pleased that I could block this stuff out since she didn’t even come close to hitting my legs with hers. Then the drinks came around. Instead of getting a dinky sized cup of club soda like you would normally drink whiskey on the rocks with, I got a whole can of club soda. A WHOLE CAN. Ah man I was pumped. But the best part of it all…just wait…they played TV shows. And you know what show they put on…THE NEW GIRL. Holy balls, I love that show. And I almost forgot how much I love it. Thank gosh United reminded me because the season premiere is September 25th. I made that up, but I’m pretty sure it’s a pretty damn good guess. OMG I’m excited. Dear United, thanks for being the best airline ever.Print
Blueberry Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
- Yield: 4 1x
- 2 sweet potatoes or yam, cut in half lengthwise
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1lb Bison Breakfast Sausage
- 1 egg, whisked
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut your sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and place in oven to bake for 25-30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft when you poke them.
- While your sweet potatoes bake, place your breakfast sausage in a large skillet over medium heat and cook down, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat.
- When your meat begins to brown, add your blueberries and sprinkle in a bit of salt and pepper.
- Cook down until cooked through. Discard excess liquid from meat and blueberries. And place mixture in a large bowl.
- Add your whisked egg and mix to combine.
- When your sweet potatoes are done cooking, cool for a couple minutes, then use a spoon to remove some of the excess sweet potato that you don’t need (eat that as a snack for later), leaving behind a 1/4 inch of so of sweet potato so the skin doesn’t break apart.
- Add your blueberry and breakfast sausage mixture into your sweet potato skins and place back in the oven to cook for 6-8 minutes.
- Let cool. Top with an egg if you’d like. Why wouldn’t you, really!?

Wow! Yum! I wouldn’t have thought about that combo. Thank god for you!
This is kind of a weird recipe for me… blueberries & bison sausage…
Maybe I’m reading it wrong. It took a few reads to realise that
‘after weeks of PEEING I’ve become very pale’ was in fact ‘weeks of peeling’. PaleOOPS!
BTW your paleo butt is incredible & motivates me to get off mine 🙂
Mmm, I just bought sausage at Whole Foods, now an excuse to use it! Now to get the blueberries…
I’m sure you’ve received this question a billion times already, but what’s the ETA on the cookbook?
Haha, everyone loves some SAC (sweaty ass crack)!
I feel your pain, I got this weird butt-crack sweat rash from too many days in compression capris. It itches 🙁
1. Blueberry sausage?! Dayton, OH really needs a Whole Foods.
2. “Not paleo to the normal eye” HAHAHA
3. Spandex capris can get pretty hot, but when I do burpees, my legs don’t end up FILTHY from laying on the ground like they do with shorts. It’s a trade off.
Berries & Sausage ROCKS!! I Thought I was odd for liking this! Gotta add in the rest of this! Thanks JB!
Bacon & Peaches go together nicely too!
being married and a nice guy I will refrain from commenting on the last pic.
Oooh this looks like an interesting combo. Definitely worth a try!
I’m flying to Aruba on United in a couple weeks…can’t wait! I LOVE NEW GIRL TOOOOOO!
Funny, I used that sausage to create your Meatza recipe a few weeks ago. It tasted amazing with the blueberry sausage!
That is a very nice…a…udience. Yeah…audience, that’s what I’m going with here. Berries seem to be going out of season already, sad day.
man… us houstonians generally loathe united. they bought out our beloved continental airlines. flew to cancun for our honeymoon on united and we were five minutes inside the 60 minute window (had to return his tux) and the lady b****ed us out, since we interrupted her conversation. clearly she was not a continental legacy employee. haaaaaaaaate united!
i can’t eat sweet potatoes probably for another year or so since i’m on a no complex carb diet. when i can eat them, i wanna make this for breakfast. it looks so delicious.
Oh why did I have to start my 21 day sugar detox today!!! I guess only 20 more days of veggie and egg scramble and then I can try this
I believe the appropriate comment for the last pic is, “Dat Ass”
High Five! 🙂
So excited to try this one! I have all of the ingredients, so this could very well be breakfast tomorrow!!
Love your blog and your recipes.
Next Sunday Funday you don’t leave until Monday. Or later. Deal? Deal.
I had never flown with United until last month and I agree! The leg space was the best like I didn’t feel like I was foot cuddling with someone else. I’ve never heard of Blueberry Sausage, definitely going to have to try it out!
This actually looks amazing, what is the purpose of the one whisked egg?
Glad to see I am not the only one who looks like they have bathed in chalk after a workout! I’ll pass that picture to my coaches to prove that myself and LeBron James aren’t the only one’s who throw chalk around before a competition.
the egg acts as a binder so it doesn’t fall out of the sweet potato, but you don’t need it necessarily.
I am going to crave this until blueberries in Australia continue to drop in price. I love blueberries but $7 for 125grams. NO THANKS. (They were $9 the other week – wtf?)
You are so awesome. I love reading all your stories and your recipes are flicpin awesome. I wish I could come up with the stuff you make. It is crazy… You have a ton of talent..
Such a creative idea, love the sound of this! I also CANNOT wait for New Girl to start, that show cracks me up!
Love the recipes ….don’t worry about your duppa. It is NICE!!!!
I just ate these for breakfast. they were f-ing delicious!! Will your book be out in time for christmas? I want it for Christmas! I love your blog. thanks for all your hard work!
Pale legs? Who cares? Annie’s pale. Come to VT and be pale with us. By the way, your banana bread recipe rules, I make it all the time. Thanks for the inspiration!
I made these for lunch today and they were so good. Glad I have 4 left for later!
I love looking at the faces on on this picture. Several are plain serious…like they might be a little scared of you. One is full out smiling. That’s because you’re a hoot. And then one is contemplating…”should I head for the door now or is this her normal craziness”. Of course, the guys are all wondering if you are single. 🙂
Just made these. Awesome. Will add this to the collection of “go to” recipes. I used ground turkey with added spices to make it more like breakfast sausage….fennel, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and a little cumin. Fabulous.
Thanks for the recipe!!
Never would’ve thought about blueberries and sausage but it was amazing!!! Really don’t want to share with anyone…
This dish is crazy awesome, who would have thought those go together so freakin well?!
I have a few review from the Peanut Gallery here at my house. One was “Mom, you must absolutely positively without fail make this again. Tomorrow.” Another was “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”. Yet another was “This made me emotional”. My 4 year old finished this in about 5 seconds, and he thought that the meat, which turned a lovely shade of blue, was the best thing he’s ever eaten. So worldly. I think that this is a total WIN, and will be made at least once a week. I left out the egg, actually I forgot it until I had everything scooped and on plates. It was still awesome.
Question, would this be just as awesome with a mixture of berries or are the solo blueberries a must? Wanting to make this for breakfast tomorrow and hoping my 3 yr old will approve!
I think blueberries by themselves are probably best BUT you never know!!
I’m trying this for breakfast right now. Holy cow! My mouth is watering in anticipation!
I’ve made this recipe three times in the last 24 hours. It is that good! Thanks so much for the brilliant breakfast idea. I can’t wait for your cookbook!
thank gosh you didn’t let the picture food you! you rock
Wow, this was really excellent! I used ground pork and seasoned it up to be sugar-free sausage. I think in the future, I will not bother trying to serve them “stuffed” and just mash the sweet potatoes together with the blueberry sausage.
This is my new favorite breakfast recipe!! I pinned this a while ago bookmarking in my mind that I would make it when I can pick fresh blueberries and use them seasonally.
It’s a great combo of sweetness and meatiness without any added sugars! I’m definitely going to be making this more often with the many bags of frozen berries that I picked this summer.
Thanks for posting!
Stop reading these comments and go make this NOW! You’re still here, huh? My only regret that I ate this for breakfast and lunch….in the same sitting!
This is a favorite in our house. The kids call it “Blue Meat” I make it with beef sausage because I can’t find the bison here. But it is delicious all the same
Does this reheat well?
I was hesitant to try this recipe, but it tastes amazing. Definitely worth trying if you’re unsure like I was.
