Smothered Sweet Potatoes

Sometimes I crave comfort through food and potatoes is always the perfect avenue. I know I’ve made many versions of potato dishes over the years, and particularly smothered potatoes. It is a dish that always delivers and brings contentment. It’s great both as a main dish or side dish, though in this case, I went for a complete meal. While the base dish doesn’t include a leafy green, I intentionally added a few handfuls of kale to round out the nutrition in this comforting favorite. Check out the recipe below.


2 cups died sweet potatoes 

1 cup diced onion

1 cup diced bell pepper

14 oz sliced turkey sausage

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tbsp dried rosemary

1 tbsp onion powder

1 tbsp garlic powder

1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 cup water


  1. Peel and diced onion and add it to a medium pan. Rinse and scrub sweet potatoes before dicing and add to the pan. (Peel if preferred)
  2. Start cooking over medium heat and add a splash of water to prevent sticking. 
  3. Peel and minced garlic and dice bell pepper and add to the pan. Let cook for 10 minutes. 
  4. Slice sausage while cooking potatoes. Add sausage, herbs and seasonings and stir well. 
  5. Add balsamic vinegar over pan cook for ten to fifteen minutes. 
  6. Enjoy.
