Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash

I love making a big thing of Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash on Sunday to eat throughout the week. It makes the mornings so much less hectic!

We’ve been making breakfast hash for quite a few years now and I’m telling you, it just never gets old! Alessandro LOVES it too! It not only makes the mornings so much less hectic, but it’s a nice and healthy start to the day. I used to do 6am workouts, come home, heat up some breakfast, get ready and head to work all before 8am. How on earth did I do that? I would love to get back into early morning classes, but ever since this babe, I feel like a permanent zombie.

What all goes in this Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Hash?

  • Olive oil (can also use Ghee, clarified butter)
  • Ground Turkey
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Peppers (bell peppers + jalapeños)
  • Spices (chili powder + cumin + paprika + cayenne + salt + pepper)
  • Chicken broth (can sub vegetable broth)

It is a super lean and healthy meal (did I mention it’s Gluten-free, Whole30 approved, and Paleo?), but besides that, it’s also loaded with flavor and is truly so satisfying. I like to store the hash in the fridge and simply re-heat in the morning. You could serve it with a fried egg, avocado, and salsa, or just eat as is! SO yummy either way.
