Turkey Sausage, Apple + Sweet Potato Hash

Now listen, I love my job (oh wow, I just said that), but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t dreaming of a cozy Saturday morning in, especially by Thursday! Ya feel me?

Have no fear. We have the perfect breakfast to warm you up this weekend! We LOVE a good hash. There’s just something about being able to have so many different things in the same dish that is super satisfying. But, what makes this hash dreamy to me is the sweet + savory combo. The Granny Smith apple flavor with sweet potatoes, turkey, and yolk from an egg… all in one bite?! Okay, let me stop drooling…

Continuing with the [unofficial] theme of this week, this recipe packs the protein. What’s even cooler? This “sausage” is made with straight-up ground turkey, but you won’t be missing any of the sausage flavor. #healthyhack

Make this hash to discover that culinary magic for yourself, and let us know how you like it!

Turkey Sausage, Apple + Sweet Potato Hash


  • 1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil, divided
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 large eggs


  1. Place ground turkey in a mixing bowl with sage, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne. Using your hands, mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Heat 1 tsp coconut oil in a large cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Heat remaining 1 tbsp coconut oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add sweet potato, onion and thyme.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 10-12 minutes, until onions are translucent and sweet potatoes are soft.
  5. Add apple to skillet and continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add turkey sausage back to skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until incorporated.
  7. Reduce heat to medium-low. Using a wooden spoon, make four wide cavities in your skillet. Gently crack an egg into each cavity and season each with salt and pepper.
  8. Cover skillet and cook until eggs are done to your liking, about 5-7 minutes.
