Turkey Skillet Dinner
Life is busy isn’t it? I don’t even like that word, busy. We are all busy, I prefer to use the word “full”. Because I think busy almost has a negative connotation to it. In my life, busy doesn’t necessarily mean bad, or crazy. We have four kids, we homeschool, and we have extracurricular activities. It’s all good stuff friends, but it is full, and it’s a season. That’s one of the reasons I love this Turkey Skillet Dinner. On those days when I need dinner in a hurry, and not just take out or pizza, this is the answer. Plus, not only does it taste awesome, it’s really good for you. What more could you ask for?
Easy Does It
Just a few ingredients and you have a one pot wonder! Ground turkey, onion, sweet potato, kale (or spinach), and cheese. Only 5 ingredients, besides your salt and pepper, which I don’t usually count as an official ingredient because everyone has that. I guess 6, if you count the parsley. I used that to garnish it, but it does add some great flavor and it’s good for you too. Completely optional.
If you’re really short on time, take a few minutes on the weekend, or the night before and peel and cut the sweet potatoes. They will keep just fine in the fridge.
Here’s the basics– brown the ground turkey, add the sweet potato (and some water if there’s no liquid in the pan), cover it and cook until the potatoes are tender. That’ll take about 10-15 minutes max. Then add the kale or spinach, whichever you prefer, let it cook down and top with goat cheese. Garnish with parsley and serve it up. There ya go! Turkey skillet dinner, dinner is done, one pot meal!
Variation: If you’re really into cheese? Throw some fresh mozzarella in top, and toss it in the oven for a few minutes while it melts, then top with the goat cheese. You can never have enough cheese! Am I right or am I right?
