Breakfast! It’s probably the trickiest thing to get used to on the AIP. Am I right? I gotchu.
You need something that will get you through the morning – something with carbs to get you going, protein to sustain you, and vegetables to nourish you. You want something to gently welcome you to the day. Nothing too weird. And maybe you’re just not ready to begin your day with a salad or soup.
I get it. I’ve been right where you are. I created this dish just for you.
Back in the day, I loved corned beef hash with a poached egg on top for breakfast. Yeah, that’s not going to fly. So I thought to myself, what if I could create a hash that would be just as satisfying, but more nourishing?
Voilà! Turkey Breakfast Hash! It’s got carb-y sweet potatoes and zucchini, ground turkey for energy-sustaining protein, and apples and cinnamon for comfort. It’s a one-dish meal that you can portion out for the week in glass containers for busy mornings.
I like this hash with a serving of sauerkraut on top for probiotics. It would also be good with a side of sautéed greens or fruit. Good morning!
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- ½ teaspoon + ½ teaspoon sea salt, divided
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 2 tablespoons + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
- 3 cups diced sweet potatoes (small cubes)
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup peeled, grated Fuji apple
- 1 cup grated zucchini
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- In a large bowl, mix turkey, sage, ½ teaspoon salt, garlic powder and onion powder with a fork.
- Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Crumble the ground turkey into the skillet, and brown until no pink remains. Drain the meat through a sieve, and set aside.
- Return skillet to heat. Melt the other 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add sweet potatoes and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are soft, about 7-10 minutes. Add cooked turkey, apples, zucchini, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, vinegar and cinnamon. Stir and cook for another minute. Taste for salt, and adjust, if desired. Serve with a side of sauerkraut, sauteed greens, or fruit.
