turkey and sweet potato hash
  • 3 ounces turkey breast, boneless and skinless, diced
  • 2 ounces cooked sweet potatoes, diced (drained if from can)
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons turkey gravy (or a couple tablespoons chicken broth)
  • 1 whole egg
  • herbage of your choice, salt and pepper to taste
  • non-stick cooking spray
  1. Ellie's recipe called for poached eggs which I do not like, so I made mine over easy.
  2. Okay, on to the complicated instructions. Saute onions over medium heat until starting to soften, add diced turkey, sprinkle with herbs or spices of your choice. When turkey is about warmed through, add diced sweet potatoes and mix it all together. Add a little gravy or chicken broth to moisten the hash. Cook the egg in the style of your choice and serve on top of hash.

I expect to be cooking a lot of recipes from Ellie Krieger's cookbook, The Food You Crave. I put it on my list as interesting and a possibility to buy several months ago and my brother sent it to me for Christmas. Good timing! This is probably the most realistic healthy eating cookbook that I have ever seen. It's full of recipes that I would want to make on a weeknight - they don't take too much time, they have ingredients that I can find, for the most part, locally, plus they truly sound good and just enough different that it's not just one more chicken breast with some veggies on the side. So far they seem easily scalable - I may cut back the turkey just a bit the next time I make this as it may have been just a tiny bit too much for just me.
