sweet potatoes with feta, grapes, and spicy sausage

Opposites attract. Even in the food world. I mean, this literally sounds like an episode of Chopped where you open your basket and there's (gasp!) a sweet potato, a bunch of red grapes, some spicy pork sausage, and feta cheese. Uh - what would you possibly make? This. And it will be real, real good. Trust.

There's something about the tangy, salty feta mixed with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and the grapes. And then spicy sausage for that heartiness and protein that dinner time calls for. I threw on a drizzle of honey for good nature. Feta and honey? You haven't lived until you've tried this.

This dinner is incredibly fulfilling. I downed it after a few mile run and it was ever so satisfying. I could also see this with 1 (maybe 2?) glasses of red wine being the ultimate Wednesday night. Especially if you have an episode of The Voice on your DVR. You know you love it....

roasted sweet potatoes with feta, grapes, and spicy sausage
makes 1

1 lb. sweet potato
1 link of spicy pork sausage
2 tablespoons feta
1 bunch of red grapes, rinse and sliced in half
1 teaspoon honey
Salt, pepper, and red chili flakes to taste

Set oven to 375 degrees. Wash sweet potato and prick several times with a fork. Roast until fork tender, 45 minutes to an hour. Meanwhile, remove the sausage from its casing and cook in a skillet over medium heat until cooked through.

When potato is done, remove and let cool for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Slice open and create a pocket for stuffing. Add in sausage, feta, grapes, drizzle with honey, and season with salt, pepper, and red chili flakes.
