Morning everyone! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite breakfasts – my Hearty Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet. It has a mix of healthy fats, protein, and carbs, plus some greens to start your day out right. I like to make a batch of this on Sunday mornings and then pack the rest up for mornings during the work week. I’m pretty much always hungry, especially in the morning! But this dish does a really great job at keeping me full. It’s perfect for nurses who don’t know the next time they’ll get to eat during their shift! 😉
Healthy Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet
- 1/2 pound ground turkey
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 1/2 sweet onion
- 1 teaspoon real maple syrup
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 handful greens (I used arugula, but spinach and kale work too!)
Chop up the onion and sweet potatoes into small cubes.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Place sweet potatoes and onion into skillet. Cover, stirring occasionally, for about 7-8 minutes or until sweet potatoes begin to soften up.
Add ground turkey and garlic powder and cook until almost completely browned (about 4-5 minutes).
Scramble eggs and mozzarella in a bowl. Add to skillet and stir until eggs and turkey are cooked completely through (about another 1-2 minutes).
Mix in greens of your choice until wilted.
Turn off heat. Drizzle maple syrup on top and enjoy!
*This is a very versatile recipe. I sometimes like to add black beans for a little extra protein or instead of maple syrup, I'll add an apple to the skillet.
