Primal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffed Sweet Potato


  • 3-5 sweet potatoes (washed thoroughly, cut in half)
  • 1 pack ground Italian sausage
  • 1 pack ground chicken/turkey
  • 2 bell peppers (diced)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 2 cups mushrooms (sliced)
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese (omit this if going for a Paleo recipe)
  • Olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 350° and bake sweet potato halves skin side down for about 40 minutes or until tender.
  • In a large fry pan or wok, sauté on medium-high heat, the bell peppers, onion, and mushrooms with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and 2 tbsp olive oil.
  • In a separate sauté pan, brown the ground meat on medium-high heat.  Once meat is cooked all the way, add the meat to the vegetable mixture.
  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and use a large metal spoon to scoop out the middle of the potatoes so that you have a “boat” for the filling.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sweet potato that you removed with the meat and vegetable mixture.  Add 1/3 cup of shredded cheese and combine all ingredients.
  • Once combined, fill the sweet potato “boats” with the filling.  Top with shredded cheese and cracked black pepper.  Place back in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve and enjoy!
