Sweet Potato Skillet Dinner

Serving Size: 4 Time: 25min


2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 lb lean ground turkey or beef (if not using meat substitute 4 eggs for protein)

1 clove or 1 tsp minced garlic

½ cup yellow onion, diced

½ cup sweet pepper (any color), diced

1 ½ cup sweet potatoes, diced in to one-inch pieces (approximately one large potato)

Salt and pepper, to taste

Red chili flakes, to taste

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Serve with guacamole, if desired

1-4 T Water

Equipment and Guide:

Stove top burner

10-12” skillet (Cast iron works best) (You will need a cover if using eggs or cheese)

Cooking spoon

Colander and receptacle for grease

Tablespoon (T)

Teaspoon (tbsp)

2 cup measuring cup


Heat the olive oil in the skillet over medium high heat.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant [if not using meat, skip to cooking the onions and peppers step]

Add the ground turkey or beef to the skillet, break it apart while thoroughly cooking it. This will take about 5 mins.

Drain all but 1 tbsp of grease and return meat to pan

Add the onions and peppers to the skillet and cook until the onions are translucent

Add the diced sweet potato, red chili flakes, salt and pepper to the skillet

Cover the skillet and cook until potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally and add liquid 1 T at a time if they are sticking or you want them to cook faster

This should take about 10 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes

If you are using eggs, once sweet potatoes are tender, crack each egg into one “corner” of the skillet and cover until they are cooked to your liking.

If you are using cheese, when the sweet potatoes are tender, add the shredded mozzarella and put the lid back on to melt the cheese

Serve with guacamole, if desired.
