Roasted Sweet Potato, Sausage & Apple Bake

 Roasted Sweet Potato, Sausage & Apple Bake

I am already thinking Thanksgiving! Not that we like host it or anything (apartment life), but when Lou and I travel to MA I do like to help my mom cook the sides. I also love to give you guys new recipe ideas to try. Gives me an excuse to eat holiday food for a solid two months. 🙂

So S4B is all about the healthy balance. Especially during the holidays. I want my mashed potatoes made with butter the same way my mom made them when I was a kid. I want real gravy on my turkey. But I also like 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. I used organic chicken sausage in this dish, but you can also omit for a vegetarian option!
