It’s hard coming up with new ways to cook ground turkey.
There’s only so much you can do. Burgers, meatballs, spaghetti…after a while, it all starts to bleed together.
I really racked my brain this past weekend trying to figure out what to do with my last pound of ground turkey. As it defrosted in my fridge, I went through all of the recipes I could think of to try and find a dinner that was suitable and unique.
I finally turned to the internet for help and was greeted with this recipe. It’s brilliant, simple and absolutely delectable.
It’s like a hash, but more saucy. You could call it hash and gravy, I suppose. Gravy hash. Something like that.
I packed this up for my husband’s lunches last week and he seemed to enjoy it. The few bites I had of the hash were really delicious.
Turkey & Potato Skillet Dinner
A simple skillet dinner with ground turkey, potatoes and tomato sauce.
- Heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet or pot. Add turkey, salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano and Italian seasoning.
- Cook turkey until browned, breaking up with a wooden spoon, about 7-8 minutes. Remove turkey to a bowl.
- Heat remaining tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in the same skillet/pot. Add cubed potatoes, salt and pepper. Let potatoes cook for 4-5 minutes and then flip. Potatoes should be golden on one side.
- Continue cooking potatoes, flipping sparingly, for 8-10 minutes. Add turkey back to pan and pour in tomato sauce.
