Say hello to the ultimate stuffed baked sweet potatoes!

I’m in love with these stuffed sweet potatoes because they are filled with some of Fall’s best flavors and ingredients… crispy brussels sprouts, bacon, maple syrup, and dried cranberries. NOM. 

These Primal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts & Cranberries are really quite a dream come true.

I love baked sweet potatoes in the Fall and for Thanksgiving, but I always want to them to have a little extra something, something.

And I’m not talking about butter or marshmallows…which, can I just say… kind of sounds gross to me?

I can’t knock it because I haven’t tried it though.

Ingredients needed to make these stuffed sweet potatoes:

  • sweet potatoes
  • bacon
  • brussels sprouts
  • olive oil
  • maple syrup
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • water
  • dried cranberries
  • goat cheese crumbles

Note about the goat cheese: You van omit it to easily and quickly keep the recipe dairy-free and Paleo.

I added goat cheese to mine to really kick it up a notch. The way the goat cheese melts onto the crispy maple bacon brussels sprouts is divine.

Plus it tastes so good with the tart dried cranberries and the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.

How to make them:

Step 1: bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for an hour.

Step 2: cook the bacon until crispy ( I like to do this in the microwave).

Step 3:  make the maple bacon brussels sprouts and cranberries filling

I like getting the brussels sprouts nice and crispy… you can make them as crispy or not crispy as you like πŸ™‚

Step 4: fill your baked sweet potatoes with the maple bacon brussels sprouts and cranberry filling and top with goat cheese.

Primal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries

Servings: 4 people
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 5 strips of nitrate-free bacon
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, , cut into fourths
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 Tbs water
  • ΒΌ cup dried cranberries
  • goat cheese crumbles, (optional: keep for Primal, omit for Paleo)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large cookie sheet with tin foil.
  • Wash sweet potatoes and dry well. Poke sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Bake for one hour, flipping the sweet potatoes half way through. You’ll know they are done because you can easily stab them with a knife.
  • After flipping the sweet potatoes over, start cooking the maple bacon brussels sprouts and cranberries filling.
  • Place a paper towel on a microwave safe plate. Place the bacon strips on the paper towel and then cover in another paper towel.Heat in the microwave for 3 minutes. Check on the bacon and cook for 2 more minutes, until crispy. Once the bacon cools, cut into bite sized pieces and set aside.
  • Put 2 tsp of olive oil into a large frying pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add the brussels sprouts to the pan. Cover them with 2 Tbs maple syrup, salt, pepper and 2 Tbs of water. Mix. Once the liquid boils, reduce the heat to medium. Let the brussels sprouts cook, stirring every now and again, until the liquid thickens and evaporates, about 7 minutes.
  • Then, add the bacon, 2 Tbs of maple, and 2 Tbs of water and let them cook, stirring every so often, for 4-5 minutes.
  • Increase stovetop heat to medium-high, and cook for 6-8 more minutes. Mix every so often; you want the Brussels sprouts to get crispy at this point. Once they get crispy, mix more often; stop when desired crispiness is reached. Turn the stovetop heat off, and add dried cranberries. Mix.
  • Cut open the sweet potatoes, fill with the maple bacon brussels sprouts and cranberries filling. Optional- Top with goat cheese.
