1 large organic sweet potato
1 hormone/nitrate/sugar-free sausage (I used pork chorizo from @hudson_charles ), cooked and chopped
1/2 organic white onion, diced
3 cloves organic garlic, minced
1/2 small organic fuji apple, diced
1 tsp ghee
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp cumin
Heat oven to 400. Wash and dry sweet potato. With a fork, stab your sweet potato ferociously like it was Joseph Kony. Using your questionably clean hands, finger a dollop of coconut oil and coat potato. Use extra coconut oil to rub all over your face. Unless you have makeup on because then you’ll look like a hot mess. But really, put it on your face. I did. It’s awesome for your skin and your youth and your popularity. On a foil-lined baking sheet, bake potato for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and set aside.
In a frying pan, cook sausage thoroughly, leaving any sausage juices (I’m not gonna go there). Remove from pan and set aside. Play hard to get with the sausage. Don’t look at it, don’t poke it, don’t text it, don’t text your friends and ask what the sausage is probably thinking. Add ghee to pan, followed by onion, garlic, apple, and mushroom. Add spices. Sauté mixture for 6 minutes on medium heat. Ok, it’s been long enough. Grab the sausage and chop it into pieces. Take your power back. Add sausage to the mixture because you are in control. Saute for another minute. Remove from heat.
Set oven to broil. Slice sweet potato lengthwise. Take a knife and trace along the inside, leaving about a tic-tac’s length of "potato-meat” and scooping out excess. I’m not about to pretend I know what 1/2 an inch looks like. This is America. Set extra potato aside to be used in whatever way you choose. Maybe when your neighbor from the 1920’s comes over for a cup of sugar, you can tell her that she shouldn’t be eating refined sugar but you can give her a cup of sweet potato meat. Spoon sausage mixture into potato boats and place on a foil lined sheet. Broil for 5 minutes. I don’t know if this does anything whatsoever worthwhile, but it felt right. When it cools, snapchat a photo to all the people you want to impress but would never actually invite over for dinner. Eat it with your hands. Pretend that it’s a taco. Not the first time you’ve done that.
