This turkey & sweet potato breakfast hash is an amazing egg free breakfast! It’s packed with veggies, protein, healthy fat, and is simple to make in one pan. It’s paleo, whole30 compliant, and AIP.
Egg free breakfasts can be hard! I get a ton of questions asking how in the world you can sustain a healthy diet without eggs for breakfast. Honestly, I thought that exact same thing for years. I love eggs, and I never wanted to live without them. However, after coming to terms with the reality that I was sensitive to them, I had to figure out what in the world I was going to do without eggs!
Eggs are actually one of the most common food allergies, so egg free breakfasts are far more necessary than I initially realized. Egg allergies are incredibly common, especially among young children, and many with autoimmune disease find them to be inflammatory. Regardless of whether or not you’re actually sensitive to eggs, mixing it up and taking a break from eggs every once is a while is always a good idea!
This breakfast hash egg free, and is a serious breakfast of champions! Move over cold cereal and skim milk, step aside oatmeal, and don’t even bother applying, breakfast pastries. This breakfast hash is loaded with everything you need for a healthy breakfast, and to start your day off with a bang.
Paleo Sweet Potato & Turkey Breakfast Hash
This sweet potato & turkey breakfast hash is made with three different kinds of vegetables, and protein-packed ground turkey to start the day off right! No sugar bombs, no processed carbs, and no nutrient poor breakfasts here.
Along with sweet potato, the hash is also made with apple, which adds a bit of natural sweetness and really ties the flavors together. If you’re trying to transition away from sweeter breakfasts to more savory, nutrient dense dishes, this is an awesome stepping stone.
Plus, it’s easily made in one pan, which makes for easy cleanup and much less fuss. Yes, please! It’s great for batch cooking at the start of the week for easy breakfasts in a pinch, or make on a lazy weekend.
The Ingredients You’ll Need For This Paleo Turkey & Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash
Turkey makes for a great breakfast protein. It’s really neutral, and filling! However, you can use other proteins like ground chicken or ground pork in this recipe.
I used orange sweet potato, but you can use other varieties as well.
Apple adds just a bit of sweetness to the hash without being overwhelming. I used pink lady apples, but granny smith or gala would work here as well.
They may be an acquired taste for some, but they’re super nutrient dense!
You can swap the kale for spinach if that’s more your scene.
Rosemary, sage, and salt
