    Sweet Potato-Turkey Hash

    Hash is a flexible and easy way to transform leftover cooked meat into a distinctively different dish. This version brings together healthy sweet potatoes, apples and onions along with lean turkey or chicken.

    This Recipe Is:
    Prep: 45 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes
    • 2   medium
      sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1   medium
      apple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1/2   cup
      reduced-fat sour cream
    • 1   teaspoon
      lemon juice
    • 1   tablespoon
      canola oil
    • 1   medium
      onion, chopped
    • 3   cups
      diced, cooked, skinless turkey, or chicken
    • 1   tablespoon
      chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried
    • 1/2   teaspoon
      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 sour cream 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 minutes. Cut the hash into several rough sections; flip and cook until the undersides are browned, about 3 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
