How to Make Hearty Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash 

  1. Wash sweet potatoes and yellow onion with water. Using a cutting board and knife, chop sweet potatoes into small cubes. Chop onion and finely mince one clove of garlic.
  2. Start cooking the sweet potatoes first because they take the longest. Set a large skillet on your stovetop and turn to medium-high heat. Add olive oil to the skillet, then add cubed sweet potatoes. Cook for 20 minutes. Your cooked sweet potatoes should be soft but not mushy. 
  3. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, set a medium skillet on a separate stove top burner and turn to medium-high heat. Add olive oil to the skillet, and then add the minced garlic and chopped onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent and fragrant. Add lean ground turkey to the skillet and cook for 8-10 minutes until thoroughly cooked. 
  4. Once the sweet potatoes and ground turkey are cooked, combine them in the larger skillet. Add the chili powder, salt, and pepper. 
  5. Cook large eggs over easy and cut avocado into thin slices. Top each serving of turkey sweet potato hash with a fried egg and avocado slices.

Swaps or Alternatives

Consider swapping the avocado with other flavorful topping options like chopped bell pepper and green onions.

Italian turkey or chicken sausage makes for a zesty and equally lean alternative to regular ground turkey. 

If you only have white potatoes on hand, you can use them instead of sweet potatoes. White potatoes are a great source of fiber and potassium. 

Quick Tip(s)

To save time, cook the sweet potatoes and turkey simultaneously, using two separate skillets. 

Don’t worry about peeling the skin off the sweet potatoes. Most nutrients in sweet potatoes, including fiber and vitamin A, are in the skin. Reduce prep time and increase your nutrient intake by leaving the skin on.
