For this paleo stuffed sweet potatoes recipe, I’ll show you how to roast sweet potatoes and cook your filling on prep day. That way, you can just combine and reheat the components for an easy Whole30 breakfast in the morning when you’re ready to eat!
But, just know that this is only one of many Whole30 stuffed sweet potato possibilities. You could try breakfast stuffed sweet potatoes with scrambled eggs and sliced avocado, or almond butter and berries—really any ingredients that you like. Or, you could even switch up the vessel and try stuffed russet potatoes, or even stuffed acorn squash!
Roast Sweet Potatoes until Tender
First, roast sweet potatoes in the
oven at 400°F (200°C) for 45 minutes to
an hour. You want them nice and tender for stuffing, and roasting results on a
caramelized, natural sweeter potato!
To do this, I recommend poking holes
all around the outside of each sweet potato so steam can release in the oven.
Then, wrap each individual potato with foil and place them on a baking sheet.
And that’s it—they’re ready to roast!
Cook Whole30 Stuffed Sweet Potato
For Whole30 meal prep purposes, it’s
best to get your sweet potatoes roasting early, near the beginning of your prep
day. Just be sure to set a timer for 45 minutes and check on them to see how
they’re doing! This way, you can continue with your filling and any other prep
work while they’re in the oven.
Chop & Cook Bacon
To make your filling, start by chopping your bacon into small-ish pieces. Keep in mind that they’ll shrink a bit as they cook! Also, to keep this a true Whole30 stuffed sweet potato recipe, make sure to use a Whole30 compliant bacon. (No sugar, nitrates or nitrites!)
Then, add the chopped bacon into a
large pan and cook through. Once it’s cooked to your liking, scoop the bacon
out of the pan and set aside in the bowl.
Next, you can remove some of the fat
from the pan if you like, but leave enough to use as your cooking fat for the
rest of the filling!
Cook Veggies & Breakfast Sausage
Into the same pan that you cooked your bacon, add onions and saute for a few minutes, followed by bell pepper. Once those veggies are tender, add in the Whole30 breakfast sausage of your choice. Again, make sure to find a breakfast sausage that’s clean and Whole30 friendly, with no added sugars!
Break up the ground meat into larger
chunks and allow to sear, then gradually break up the meat until cooked
through. Once cooked, season to taste as desired. Be sure to check the
ingredients on your breakfast sausage—many come pre-seasoned with salt, pepper,
or other flavorings!
Last but not least, add a generous
helping of spinach to the pan and let that wilt down. Then, you can add back in
the cooked bacon, stir, and the filling for your paleo stuffed sweet potatoes
is ready to go.
Store Components Separately for
Whole30 Meal Prep
Once the sweet potatoes are roasted
and the filling has been cooked, allow your components to cool before storing.
For meal prep, it’s best to store the roasted sweet potatoes separately from
the filling, otherwise everything may get soggy.
Then, in the mornings when you’re
ready to eat, simply slice a roasted sweet potato lengthwise and stuff it with
your savory breakfast mixture. Reheat as desired—in the microwave or in the
Hard to beat a morning meal that you
can have ready in just minutes. A clean, savory, satisfying Whole30
breakfast that you’ll want to enjoy again and again!
