Sausage and Baked Potato Bites

How does mini broccoli and cheddar baked potatoes with chicken sausage sound to you? 

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 raw Yukon Gold potato, scrubbed clean and dried ( any gold potato variety will work)
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12oz fully cooked chicken sausage

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Poke the potatoes a few times ( I do 5 times) with a fork. Microwave potatoes on a microwave-safe plate for 5 minutes. Flip using tongs ( they will be hot) and microwave for another 5 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool while you cook the broccoli. 
  3. Microvan broccoli as directed on the packaging 
  4. When the potatoes have cooled enough to handle (about 10 minutes), slice them in half. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the insides of each potato, leaving a ¼” border around the outside. Place the scooped-out potato into a medium mixing blow. Place the potato shells on the large baking sheet. **If the potatoes are too warm to hold use a paper towel to hold them.**
  5. Add sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, and 1/3 cup of cheddar cheese to the mixing bowl. Use a potato masher or a fork to mash everything together. Once the mixture is smooth, stir in broccoli. 
  6. Fill each potato with the mixture, top with the remaining cheese (about 2 tablespoons), and place chicken sausage onto the sheet pan. 
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the sausage is warm
