Turkey (Or Chicken) and Sweet Potato Hash

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Another addition to the dozen variations on turkey hash available here. The original recipe is courtesy of *Eating Well* magazine and presented here includes my modifications. A wonderful way to create a fresh take on your holiday leftovers. Serve at brunch or a light supper with poached eggs or just simply enjoy it as a one dish meal. If served along with lots of other items, this will serve six, otherwise 4 adults.

A good supper, toni. I bit of work but I liked the flavor and it was a change from our usual fare. Perhaps it was the expectation the word "hash" holds for me that I got something else. I used turkey leg and it just became strngy when I attempted to dice it. I think I would prefer this made with turkey breast so that the meat could be cubed more easily. Beautiful color.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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 yogurt and lemon juice. Add the remaining potatoes and apples to the mash and stir to mix. Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add turkey, thyme, and garlic and cook for 2 minutes until the poultry is heated through.
  4. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and stir. Next add the reserved sweet potato mixture to the skillet and stir to mix. Press on the hash with a spatula and cook for 5 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned. Cut the hash into several rough sections. Flip and cook until the undersides are browned, about 3 minutes longer. (I have never successfully flipped any hash, but I am impatient and enjoy messy comfort food.).
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. If prepared with yogurt, this recipe is WW Core.
