This easy Turkey Breakfast Hash with Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes is a beautiful canvas home cooks can modify to their heart’s desire! This easy breakfast actually comes together in about 20 minutes, and yields enough for 4-6 servings, making it a great option for make-ahead breakfast meal prep.
The number one thing my clients (and maybe all Americans?) seem to need is a way to make hearty, nutrient-dense breakfasts. It’s hard to get enough protein from oatmeal day after day, and we don’t really set up our workdays to allow for a hot breakfast with filling fat, fiber, and protein.
That’s exactly why I am sharing this seemingly too-easy recipe: because we all need it!
All you need are a few simple ingredients, and 20-25 minutes.
I like to make this on the weekends and heat it up throughout the week with a fresh egg the day-of.
To make this Turkey Breakfast Hash faster/easier:
- use pre-shredded brussels sprouts
- use pre-cubed sweet potatoes
- swap out Japanese sweet potatoes for orange sweet potatoes (they cook faster)
- cook the turkey in a separate skillet to save 5-8 minutes
- make a batch of soft-boiled eggs ahead of time to use day-of!
You can also change up the seasonings in this recipe. I have made it with rosemary, sage, and maple syrup (like starting with these maple breakfast sausages), or you can even add a little shredded or cubed apple if you’d like it a little sweeter.
And as always, skip things that don’t work for you! I love adding an egg (poached or soft boiled when I have the time), but weekdays usually call for something quick and easy with a runny yolk.
I made (and priced) this with Japanese sweet potatoes, but you can use your favorite spuds here – this is also great with orange garnet sweet potatoes or Yukon gold potatoes.

Low FODMAP: Not really, but can be modified – if you tolerate this small serving of brussels sprouts, replace the sweet potato with rutabaga or white potato and skip the onion.

Make this EASY Turkey Breakfast Hash for healthy breakfasts all week long! I love this topped with a perfect poached egg and fruit on the side.
- 1–2 Tablespoons cooking fat, as needed (coconut oil, ghee, avocado oil work great here)
- 2 Tablespoons minced onion
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
- can sub with your favorite herbs and seasonings instead
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 medium Japanese sweet potato (or regular sweet potato, about 12 ounces)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 ounces shredded brussels sprouts
- more salt to taste
- optional: 4-8 eggs (1-2 per serving)
- optional: 4 servings of fruit
- In a large skillet (one that has a lid), warm up the oil or cooking fat, then sauté the minced onions about 2-3 minutes, or until just starting to brown.
- Add the ground turkey and seasonings and cook until browned and fully cooked. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
- Chop the sweet potato into small cubes, about 1/4-inch. You want them small so they cook quickly and evenly. Add a little more cooking fat to the pan, set to medium-high heat, and add the sweet potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Toss to cover in the fat and then add 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook about 5 minutes to steam. Remove lid and stir potatoes, and check for doneness. If needed, add a little more water and steam 1-2 minutes longer. Otherwise, sauté until any remaining water has cooked off.
- Stir in the shredded brussels sprouts and a dash of salt and cook another 5-7 minutes. You can cover them to steam and cook faster if you’d prefer.
- Stir in the turkey and continue cooking until warmed through. Taste and adjust salt, pepper, etc. for your own preferences.
- Serve with a gooey 6-minute egg, poached egg, or fried egg if desired.
Oven: Alternatively, if you have time, or you’re making this ahead, I recommend roasting the sweet potatoes in the oven. on 425ºF for about 20-25 minutes. This provides and GREAT texture, and if using Japanese sweet potatoes, they taste even better when baked on high heat. You can cook the turkey as instructed, skip the sweet potato step, and just add the Brussels sprouts to the cooked turkey to sauté for about 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you could roast the shredded Brussels sprouts as well, but they should only take about 10-12 minutes.
