Turkey and Sweet Potato Skillet Recipe

tukey sweet potato skillet recipe

Turkey and Sweet Potato Skillet Ingredients:

  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. bulk turkey sausage
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes
  • 1 12-oz. bag frozen broccoli florets
  • ¾ c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded

 

You’ll find these kitchen tools useful (I've included affiliate links to the products I use at home):

  • Cast Iron Pan – obviously. I have this Lodge pan with the removable silicone handle cover.  I also keep a scraper in the kitchen to easily clean it because you should never submerge your cast iron pan in water, it takes away from all the wonderful seasoning the pan offers.
  • Silicone spatula, I love using my silicone cooking utensils because I don't have to worry about damaging my pots and pans.

Turkey and Sweet Potato Skillet Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is lightly browned and no longer pink, around 6-8 minutes. While cooking, break up the sausage into small chunks with a spatula.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes to the skillet and continue cooking until they become soft and slightly crisp around the edges, approximately 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add the broccoli and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired. Stir to combine. Cover and allow the broccoli to steam for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and sprinkle the shredded Mozzarella on top. Cover for another 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Quick and easy meals are a must for us.  This recipe is easy to change the flavor by purchasing pre-seasoned turkey sausage, we love spicy Italian.  We hope you enjoy this five-ingredient skillet meal as much as we do!

Meal prep tips:

  • I like to cube my sweet potatoes and boil them until almost ready, you can be stored in the fridge to use later that week or in the freezer.
  • Pre-grate mozzarella cheese
