Sweet Potato Hash

I never really thought of savory breakfast until recently. I primarily always thought of breakfast as sweet to some degree. Whether it was pancakes, french toast, sausage, oatmeal, these all have some sort of sweet component. The maple syrup for the pancakes and sausage, fruit topping for oatmeal, but when I was looking to see what I could make savory for breakfast when trying to diversify, the thought of savory oatmeal just didn't sound right, but I changed my thinking to think about what lunches or dinners had I had as leftovers in the morning and I came up with Sweet Potato hash. Sweet potato has sweet in the name but it's not cheating...

 The sweet potato is good in both sweet and savory dishes. With the addition of different ingredients, herbs and spices you can turn sweet poatoes into a savory dish in 5 mintues. Turkey adds protein and then there is the addition of the veggies to balance out the carbs. This meal is realtivley quick to make, though it's not a grab and go meal it can be prepped in advance to take on the go. Add the turkey to a skillet and cook until brown about 10 minutes. Set aside and then cook the sweet potato. To make this a quick meal use frozen sweet potato which you can add to a pan right along with the veggies to cook for about 15 minutes.  Once that's done then it's time to assemble. 

In a bowl add the sweet potato. I wanted to make this versatile so this is the point where you add your own herbs/ spices to your dish. Get creative and make it your own.  Top with the turkey and the veggies.  This is a meal that yields two servings so it's either good for two or good for you, you'll have this meal all to yourself.
