We are al fresco Chicken Sausage Ambassadors. All delicious views expressed are that of our own.
When it comes to dinners I love to be super creative most of the time and wing things. Another specialty of mine is to turn meals or even appetizers my family loves to make meals out of them. Some days we have nachos for dinner, but regardless of my creations, I try to push the health aspect. My goal for this year is to make yummy meals that are not only creative but better for my family. The more simple swaps, the better!
So many of us are trying to eat fewer fats, fewer calories, and more veggies. Today’s recipe is inspired by just that. Have you ever tried a Sweet Potato with Buffalo Chicken Sausage? I admit this recipe was inspired by the heavily caloric buffalo chicken dip and meal prep. My husband and I use to eat chicken and sweet potatoes seasoned with hot sauce after the gym religiously. However, like most things in life, we got sick of the combination.
I thought to myself…how could I make this tastier without a TON of calories and junk? I wanted the meal to be healthy, fun, and of course delicious. The final creation was only The Best Baked Sweet Potato with Buffalo Chicken Sausage.
Seriously, this meal was easy, delicious, and still post workout friendly.
Since protein is a high commodity after a good workout, I wanted to make sure these Buffalo Chicken stuffed sweet potatoes were well-balanced. Just a sprinkle of cheese on each, a swizzle of non-fat Greek yogurt and a serving of al fresco Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage would make these potatoes POP.
al fresco does make a Buffalo Style with Blue Cheese Chicken Sausage, but my store was all out so I improvised with the Roasted Garlic flavor. I love all their flavors which are available in your grocer’s refrigerated sausage section.
These mealy Baked Sweet Potatoes with Buffalo Chicken Sausage were amazing!!
They had some of the same flavors of buffalo chicken dip or wings but much less fat!!! These sausages are made with lean, skinless chicken meat and contain 70% less fat than pork sausage (USDA). They are not salt-laden, and have 30% less sodium than pork sausage. Plus, they are fully cooked so you really can heat them up quickly!!
Don’t these stuffed sweet potatoes look awesome? They were so good! I cannot wait to make them again!!!
