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.

What kind of pan should I use for this Sweet Potato Hash?

This dish uses a cast-iron skillet and bonus – it is so versatile. But any oven-safe pan will do. 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.

Are sweet potatoes good for you?

Yes they are. But don’t be deceived. Sweet potatoes are not yams. They are known for their many health benefits and are considered a superfood. They’re loaded with beta carotene, are high in antioxidants and are a rich source of vitamin A.

Variations to this Sweet Potato Hash:

There are so many ways to change this recipe to suite your appetite.

Change the meat: Use ground chicken, ground beef, fresh turkey, chorizo or hot Italian sausage.

Turn it into breakfast: Add ham, bacon and eggs to this hash.

Switch up the veggies: Switch out the sweet potatoes for regular Idaho potatoes, add sweet bell peppers, mushrooms, kale, avocado, brussel sprouts or corn.

Love cheese: Try mozzarella, cheddar or spicy blend of cheeses to heat up this dish.

        Made this tonight for dinner, amazing. Simple to make, delicious, easy clean up. I love a one pot meal. I added mushrooms and topped with a little mozorella cheese along with the parm. I’m a Louisiana girl, so I added some extra spice with a little white pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Adding this recipe to my go to dinner folder. Thanks
