5 tips to make the best Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet recipe:

  1. Don’t overload your skillet with sweet potatoes because this veggie takes forever to cook, and you may burn your food. If your cast iron skillet is 9-10 inches, the ideal amount of diced sweet potato is between 2-3 cups.
  2. Cover the skillet with a lid and reduce the heat to medium to cook the sweet potato faster.
  3. Or, you can first cook the sweet potato and add it into the pan when the ground turkey is cooked.
  4. You can also add another spice that you have in your kitchen to make this recipe even more flavourful. According to some readers’ reviews, this recipe is also good with cumin, curry, paprika, sage, chili powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, and hot sauce.
  5. And, some readers said that they added kale, spinach, and mushroom as well, which make this recipe even more delicious and nutritious. I’ve already made this recipe with broccoli and green beans, and it worked very well, too. So, be open to adding more veggies if you wish.
