Sweet Potato-Turkey Hash

WebMD Recipe from

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.
