Very tasty! A little time consuming though. My potatoes took closer to 18 min to get tender in the microwave.
My family really liked these. They took too much time for a weeknight meal. Next time I make them I would add butter to the potato mixture.
I didn't love this. The potato filling could have been creamier, more flavourful. I'd use more sour cream + butter next time
I cooked the sweet potatoes and the broccoli in the microwave while the Burssels sprouts were steaming, and also slightly extended the steam time after reading some comments that the meal took a while to cook. Could be I had smaller Brussels sprouts, but our meal came together in about 30 mins--that's a big win for a busy weeknight. I would also try subbing the sausage for black beans, or omitting altogether for some variations of this meal.
I didn’t stuff the potatoes. I scooped out the inners and mixed in the other stuff and put in a dish and baked it. Much less effort.
I loved this- agree that it took a very long time though. The sweet potato and sausage was a good mix!
