Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Sweet potato 300-350g
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Chile powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Avocado mashed (about 1 small avocado, or 120g)
  • 2 tsp Fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp Fresh garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp Cilantro minced
  • 1/4 Cup Salsa of choice
  • 1/2 inch a Butterball Every Day Smoked Turkey Dinner Sausage sliced into 3/4 rounds *

Instructions

  1. Preheat yourgrill to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. While the grill heats, cut the sweet potato into 1/2 inch thick rounds and rub the tops with half of the olive oil.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the cumin, paprika and chile powder. Sprinkle half the spice mixture over top of the oiled-side of the potatoes and rub into each slice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the potato rounds, oiled-side down onto the pre-heated grill and cook for 4 minutes.
  5. While the potatoes cook, place the avocado, lime juice, garlic, cilantro and salsa into a medium bowl and mash until well combined. Leave a little bit of the avocado chunky for some texture. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Once the potatoes have cooked on one side, brush the tops with the remaining oil and sprinkle with the remaining seasoning, rubbing it in quickly so you don't burn yourself. Flip the potatoes and cook for an additional 4 minutes, or until fork tender. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  7. Place the sliced Turkey Sausage on the grill and cook for 2 minutes per side, flipping once.
  8. Divide the avocado mixture onto the center of each grilled potato round and top with a slice of sausage.
  9. DEVOUR.

Recipe Notes

* You will not use all the sausage, but I recommend grilling it all and then eating it throughout the week, as it's super tasty!
