Sweet Potato Turkey Hash



2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 medium apple, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 Tbsp. grape seed oil

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cups diced, cooked, skinless turkey or chicken

1 tsp. dried thyme or 1 tbsp. fresh chopped thyme

1/2 tsp. salt

freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Add apple and cook until everything is just tender, but not mushy, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Drain.
  2. Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a large bowl; mash. Stir in greek yogurt and lemon juice. Add the remaining unmashed mixture and stir gently to mix. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add turkey (or chicken), thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the reserved sweet potato mixture to the pan; stir to mix. Press on the hash with a wide metal spatula; cook until the bottom is lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes. Cut the hash into several rough sections; flip and cook until the undersides are browned, about 3-5 minutes longer (after the bottom gets nice and brown I like to stick mine under the broiler to get the top nice and crispy instead of cutting it up and flipping it). Serve immediately.

    I am declaring today Turkey Tuesday (instead of Tilapia Tuesday) for all you folks that are still looking for different and delicious ways to use up that leftover turkey you probably still have! This is one of my favorite recipes. I like to get the top nice and crispy so I usually stick it under the broiler for a little bit. If you’re on the lookout for more turkey recipes, keep checking here, I have a feeling we might be taking a little break from Tilapia Tuesdays for a little while to get a little more variety in our recipes here!
