Top your hash with toasted pecans, over a bed of arugula or with your favorite hot sauce for some extra flavor. Another favorite topping of mine is to add raisins directly to the turkey sweet potato hash.

How to make this turkey sweet potato hash

Step 1

Wash and dry the sweet potatoes and chop into bite sized pieces leaving the skin on. The larger the pieces the longer this will take to cook. I like to cut the potato into 1/2″ rounds and into approximately 8 bite size pieces from each round. This will vary based on the size and shape. 

Step 2

Finely dice your yellow onion and mince garlic. In a pan or cast iron over medium heat add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, garlic and onion. Cook until fragrant. 

Step 3

Add sweet potatoes to the pan with the garlic and onion, 1/4 cup of water and season with salt and pepper. Stir together well, cover and simmer at medium for 5-7 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Stir the potatoes frequently as they will burn. This however is the best added flavor. 

Step 4

While the potatoes cook, cook the turkey until cooked through in a separate pan over medium heat. 

Step 5

Mix seasonings in a small dish with 1 Tbsp. of water and add to the turkey once fully cooked. Mix to evenly coat the turkey. 

Step 6

Add the turkey to the skillet of potatoes and stir together well to combine. 

Step 7

Serve by itself, with eggs or in a salad.

    This recipe surprised me. I have never liked sweet potatoes with cinnamon, nutmeg, and all that “candied” spice. I took a gamble, made the recipe strictly as dictated, and served with two over easy fried eggs. This was fantastic with the fatty yolk of the egg to cut the sweetness of the potatoes. Super easy to make. I will say the time to cook the potatoes was off mine needed closer to 15 mins to reach tenderness. Since the cut of the potato is subjective ill chalk that up to mine being bigger cuts than used in their test kitchen……no biggie. This reheated wonderfully, as I made this for meal prep Sunday. I will keep this on the menu rotation going forward.

    10/10 incredible!

    Seasonings make this the perfect dish for fall. I eat it as a quick lunch or put it with eggs for a savory breakfast.

    1. You’d need to make the recipe in your tracking app as these are specific to turkey but they would be similar!
