Turkey Breakfast Hash is full of good stuff!

Breakfast!  It’s probably the trickiest thing to get used to on the AIP.  Am I right?  I gotchu.

You need something that will get you through the morning – something with carbs to get you going, protein to sustain you, and vegetables to nourish you.  You want something to gently welcome you to the day.  Nothing too weird.  And maybe you’re just not ready to begin your day with a salad or soup.

I get it.  I’ve been right where you are.  I created this dish just for you.

Back in the day, I loved corned beef hash with a poached egg on top for breakfast.  Yeah, that’s not going to fly.  So I thought to myself, what if I could create a hash that would be just as satisfying, but more nourishing?

Freeze in batches for a quick breakfast!

Voilà!  Turkey Breakfast Hash!  It’s got carb-y sweet potatoes and zucchini, ground turkey for energy-sustaining protein, and apples and cinnamon for comfort.  It’s a one-dish meal that you can portion out for the week in glass containers like these for busy mornings.

BTW, if you do not yet own a cast iron skillet, consider getting one. There is a reason they have been around for ages. They go from the stove to the oven, if needed, and they are virtually indestructible! I find them to be pretty non-stick, too.

I like this hash with a serving of sauerkraut on top for probiotics.  It would also be good with a side of sautéed greens or fruit.  Good morning! ☀️

Wishing you great love and deep healing!

Turkey Breakfast Hash is a one-dish powerhouse of nutrients and energy to get you going for the day. It happens to be Paleo/AIP, but it’s good for anyone!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground turkey

  • 1 tsp ground sage

  • 1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt, divided

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 2 TBSP + 2 TBSP coconut oil, divided

  • 3 cups diced sweet potatoes (small cubes)

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup peeled, grated Fuji apple

  • 1 cup grated zucchini

  • 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar

  • 1 TBSP cinnamon

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix turkey, sage, ½ teaspoon salt, garlic powder and onion powder with a fork.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Crumble the ground turkey into the skillet, and brown until no pink remains. Drain the meat through a sieve, and set aside.
  • Return skillet to heat. Melt the other 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add sweet potatoes and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are soft, about 7-10 minutes. Add cooked turkey, apples, zucchini, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, vinegar and cinnamon. Stir and cook for another minute. Taste for salt, and adjust, if desired. Serve with a side of sauerkraut, sauteed greens, or fruit.

Notes

  • If you do not yet own a cast iron skillet, consider purchasing one. There is a reason they have been around for ages. They go from the stove to the oven, they’re virtually indestructible, and naturally resistant to sticking!
