Plate of Sweet Potato and Turkey Skillet

Sweet Potato and Turkey Skillet




Yield 4 servings

Sweet Potato and Turkey Skillet is a quick, soul-warming one-pot meal spiced with rosemary, allspice, and white pepper. With its simple ingredient list, it's also Paleo and Whole30!  



Heat a skillet over medium-high and warm the oil.

Add the sweet potatoes and cook until the cubes start to carmelize a bit. Let them sit for 30-seconds to a minute before tossing. This will get you that nice brown color and pull out the flavor!

Once the potatoes start to soften, about 5-minutes or so, add the onion, garlic, ground turkey and spices. Continue to cook until there you see no more pink on the turkey, about 10-minutes.

Let sit for a minute, then serve!


  • I cook the sweet potatoes first to give them time to soften without over-cooking the turkey and drying it out. 
  • You could, of course, add any other veggies in here like spinach, kale or even broccoli or cauliflower. I just kept it simple.
