Roasted Sweet Potato, Sausage & Apple Bake

Roasted Sweet Potato, Sausage & Apple Bake

I am already thinking Thanksgiving. Not that I like host it or anything (apartment life), but I do like to help my mom cook the sides when I am home! I also love to give you guys new recipe ideas to try, and have an excuse to eat holiday food for a solid month. 

So S4B, all about the balance. Especially during the holidays. I want my mashed potatoes made with butter, I want real gravy, but I also need to have healthier options to balance out my plate. 

This Roasted Sweet Potato, Sausage & Apple Bake is the perfect combo of a healthy comfort side dish that doesn’t seem “healthy.” I used organic chicken sausage instead of pork, and added a creamy dijon dressing that gives it such a nice touch. 🙂

  • I love this recipe so much that I’ve cooked it twice in the span of a month! The first time, I followed the recipe and the second time i added BRUSSEL sprouts. i don’t recommend the brussel sprout addition. they detracted from the flavor and did not hold up well in the sauce. this recipe is easy and healthy. it gets two thumbs up from my family!
