Sweet Potato Turkey Hash


How are you supposed to take a decent looking picture of hash? It's HASH! That means its just a combined pile of different things all shoved together. How in the world can you make that pretty?

Alright, not that I've gotten that little vent out of the way, lets move onto the ugly picture but incredibly tasty dish, yes?

    • 1 package steam-in-the-bag sweet potatoes
    • 1 apple, peeled and diced
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
    • 1 tsp. lemon juice
    • 1 lb. ground turkey 
    • 1 tsp. thyme
    • salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook sweet potatoes according to package directions. Let cool slightly.
2. Meanwhile add canola oil to a skillet over medium heat and cook apples and onion for 5-7 minutes or until soft.
3. Once potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the insides of the potatoes and place them into a bowl. Discard the skins. Add the apple and onion to the bowl and stir to combine. Then stir in the sour cream and lemon juice.
4. Add the turkey to the skillet and cook for 7-8 minutes or until browned. Transfer to the bowl and stir until combined. Add in the thyme, salt and pepper.
5. Spray the skillet with non-stick cooking spray and return the mixture to the skillet, pressing down to brown it. Flip over the mixture in sections to brown on both sides. Serve hot.

I think I'm missing something about being able to get this to brown nicely on both sides. I think I would have had much better luck sticking it in the oven and just getting it browned on the top. Either way, while the looks  of this dish are far from appealing, the taste is incredible. It's kind of like Thanksgiving in a bowl, but much tastier. And would you believe its just over 200 calories? Yeah, I couldn't believe it either!
