Turkey Sweet Potato Hash


By Chef Michael Ferraro

6 servings, 1 1⁄4 cups each


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium apple, cored and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces (Honeycrisp or Braeburn work wonderfully, although any apple can suit this recipe)
  • 1⁄2 cup reduced-fat sour cream (may also substitute reduced-fat yogurt)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot, chopped
  • 3 cups diced, cooked, skinless turkey breast (or chicken)
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary (1 Tbsp. fresh, chopped)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. 1. Place sweet potatoes in a steamer basket and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Add apple and cook until everything is just tender, about 3 minutes longer.
  2. Be sure that they are not overly mushy. Drain and set aside.
  3. Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a large bowl; mash. Stir in sour cream and lemon juice. Add the remaining sweet potato/apple mixture and stir gently to mix.
  4.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add turkey (or chicken), rosemary, salt and pepper.
  5. Stir mixture occasionally and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the reserved sweet potato apple mixture to the pan. Press on the hash with a wide
  7. metal spoon or spatula. Cook hash until the bottom is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. 6. Divide into multiple sections with spatula; flip and cook until the bottom sides are browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Serve promptly
