I've decided that my friends that didn't like it, well, their taste buds are dead.
Maple Glazed Sweet Potato and Sausage
Prep Time: 17 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Serves 14 (small servings...)
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 to 3/4" cubes
3 tbs butter
1 lb. smoked sausage, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 medium onion, halved crosswise and cut into thin wedges
1 large apple, peeled, cored, and diced
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbs packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1/8 to 1/4 tsp cayenne
- Bring 1" water and 1/2 tsp salt to boil in dutch oven or large saucepan. Add potatoes; return to boiling. Cover and cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain well.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage, onion and apple. Cook and stir 5 minutes. Stir in maple syrup, brown sugar, salt, nutmeg and cayenne, mixing well.
- Stir in sweet potatoes, stirring to coat. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until lightly glazed.
WW: 3 pts.
-Looking back through the ingredients, I realized that I used 2 apples instead of 1.
-Substituted regular maple syrup with light/low sugar syrup.
-Subbed normal smoked sausage with Jennie-O turkey smoked sausage. I quartered the sausages pieces.
-Have everything chopped before you start. I got the potatoes going first, then started the rest. The potatoes were more than fork-tender.
-Recipe says serves 14, but it's more like 7-8.
