Ingredients

Directions

  • Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Add apple and cook until everything is just tender, but not mushy, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Drain.

  • Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a large bowl; mash. Stir in sour cream and lemon juice. Add the remaining unmashed mixture and stir gently to mix. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add turkey (or chicken), thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  • Add the reserved sweet potato mixture to the pan; stir to mix. Press on the hash with a wide metal spatula; cook until the bottom is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Cut the hash into several rough sections; flip and cook until the undersides are browned, about 3 minutes longer. Serve immediately.

Won't make it again. Too much work for something vaguely sweet but mostly bland. It's also a carbohydrate which I'm cutting back on. Read More

Fantastic I am diabetic and I was looking for something new to do with sweet potatoes. Found this and made it. I used a storebought roasted chicken. Husband and I loved it. Very filling. Cons: Could not get it to brown. Read More

This is an excellent easy-to-make recipe. The flavor is wonderful the texture is superb the colors are beautiful. If there's any leftover it's great the next morning with a fried egg on top. We substituted lowfat yogurt for the sour cream. Read More

Followed the recipe exactly. Note that this recipe calls for "sweet potatoes " however it appears that they are using yams (so I did too). Sweet potatoes are white-ish yellow. Yams are more orange & colorful. Anyhow it was good. I'd make it again. I topped it with scrambled eggs (using chardonnay as my liquid). Pretty tasty. I'd love to try the recipe again with chicken.

We really love this recipe. It's delicious and healthy and something different when we're in a dinner rut. We use chicken because it's easier to buy chicken breasts at the store but it would probably be even better with turkey. My only complaint is that my husband and I can NOT get this to "brown" at all no matter what we do to it. We've tried more oil higher temperature using a cast-iron pan... it just doesn't happen the way it says in the recipe. We've made it 5-6 times and no luck. I really wish it would work because it sounds like it would be fantastic but I'm not sure it's actually possible despite the photo of crispy browned hash above. Read More

Delicious! Made this for a Christmas brunch get-together and it went over really well! Next time I would dice everything smaller (I think I cut everything too big) I think it would hold together better that way. The flavors were wonderful and it was such a satisfying portion. I only wish it would have browned up more I jacked the heat way up and left it in the pan for what seemed like forever and it just wouldn't cooperate - any suggestions? Pros: Tastes great healthy satisfying Cons: Didn't brown up time consuming Read More
