Sweet Potato Turkey Hash


Back at the beginning of the month when I did the cleanse that shall not be named, I needed to find something I could eat for breakfast on the weekends that didn't include eggs, but still met the rest of the qualifications.

I could have eggs, but I knew after eating them in muffin form during the week, I was not going to be able to stomach the sight of another egg. I randomly though of the recipe and decided to wing it one morning and see how it turned out.

    • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and grated
    • 1/2 lb. lean ground turkey breast
    • 1 small bell pepper, chopped
    • 1 small onion, diced
    • 1 tsp. chili powder
    • salt and pepper, to taste
1. Place the grated sweet potato in a clean kitchen towel or paper towel and squeeze out excess moisture.
2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Brown the ground turkey, then remove it from the skillet.
3. Spray the skillet with the cooking spray and add the bell pepper and onion. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until they are softened.
4. Return the ground turkey to the skillet, along with the shredded sweet potato. Add the chili powder, salt and pepper and stir until combined.
5. Press the mixture into the skillet, allowing it to form a golden crust on the bottom before flipping over and repeating on the other side.

An egg or some cheese would have really binded these ingredients together but I worked with what was available. The sweet potato almost took on a hashbrown-like texture when it got crispy and the flavors went surprisingly well together. I wasn't certain I was going to like this, but I really enjoyed it and opted to eat the leftovers for dinner one night.
