Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash
From skillet to plate in 30 minutes, this easy ground turkey and sweet potato hash is the ideal dish for a weeknight dinner or a weekend breakfast.
I’m thinking ahead to Thanksgiving and thinking this would make a great meal using leftover turkey. After all, all the ingredients for this recipe are on the Thanksgiving dinner shopping list.
I've been loving my cast-iron skillet lately. I love how I can cook an entire meal in one pan. It can go from stove top to oven safely. It's easy to clean and is a workhorse in the kitchen.
I rely on it for easy meals because it heats up quickly and cooks evenly.
This dish uses a cast-iron skillet and bonus - it is so versatile. You can make this recipe for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Sweet potatoes are key to this recipe. I always have a few in the pantry as well as Vidalia sweet onions. Chop up a sweet yellow or orange pepper to add to the hash.
It's easy to chop up all the vegetables ahead of time to minimize your prep work. This comes in handy on busy weeknights after a busy day or weekend mornings when you're just getting out of bed. Everything is in the fridge and ready to go.
I used fresh ground turkey for this recipe because it's a healthy alternative to sausage. I added cayenne pepper for a little heat and spice. A sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a dash of parsley make for a pretty garnish.
To turn this into a power breakfast, crack a few eggs on top of the hash skillet before baking in the oven. The eggs, like the potatoes, will need about 20 minutes before this dish is ready to serve.
