STUFFED SWEET POTATOES FOR BREAKFAST – WITH SAUSAGE AND EGGS

Who knew that sweet potatoes could make a great breakfast? My husband was skeptical. Well, after trying these stuffed sweet potatoes for breakfast, he is skeptical no more. I was myself surprised how well all flavors mixed in here: scrambled eggs and sausage mixed in with a little bit of cheese sauce and pureed sweet potatoes.

To make filling for stuffed potatoes:
