If you love hotdogs, then you’ll flip for this fun and tasty alternative. I use a lean, nitrate-free, poultry sausage and stuff it inside a baked sweet potato “bun.” The end result is a tasty protein-rich dish you can serve at any cookout. Let’s get grilling!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving

  • • 1 poultry sausage, cooked
  • • Sauerkraut (optional)

Scoop out most, but not all, of the sweet potato insides, leaving about ½-1 inch off the skin. Fill sweet potato with cooked poultry sausage. Top with optional sauerkraut and spicy mustard.
