Friday night I called 911 for the first time, to get an ambulance for my younger sister (20), Caroline. We’ve all had a lot of newer health problems emerging, but Caroline’s has been the most extreme as of late. She’s developing new allergies and just smelling something, such as sesame, can cause her to pass out. On Friday she was drinking apple juice, the brand she always drinks, when she had a bad attack. Thankfully she was taken to the ER. However there she had an allergic reaction to the medicine that was supposed to help her and ended up being admitted. Thankfully on Saturday they were able to find something to help lessen the reaction and after being observed for twenty-four additional hours was released on Sunday.
While Caroline and my mom were at the hospital Hannah and I held down the house, taking care of Sarah, cleaning, cooking, getting supplies together to take to the hospital. It was hectic, but thankfully neither of us were very stressed knowing Caroline was getting help and we could handle things at home.
During those busy days of seemingly never having a break I needed meals just like these stuffed sweet potatoes. Not only do they keep you full for a long time, they also have healthy sources of carbs, fat, and so many nutrients from each ingredient!
It doesn’t take long to make this hash, the most time-consuming aspect is roasting the sweet potatoes, but thankfully you can do other activities while they are in the oven. I’ll often make a batch of this and keep it in the fridge through the week, for whenever I need a quick meal. It’s great to get for a fueling breakfast, or a quick lunch before going out shopping.
I would love to hear from you in the comments below! What dish reminds you of autumn? I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I have!
- 5 Large sweet potatoes
- 2 Medium onions, purple or yellow
- 3 Medium sweet apples
- 1lb Ground turkey
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp poultry seasoning
- Olive oil
- Roast sweet potatoes in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until fork tender, about an hour and a half.
- Peel and dice apples and onions in bite-sized pieces, about ⅓ inch cubes.
- In a large skillet over medium-low heat drizzle a little olive oil, add onions. Cook until onions are tender and semi-translucent, about eight minutes.
- Add apples, turn the heat up to medium-high, and cover skillet with a lid. Sauté until apples are soft, about 20-25 minutes depending on the type of apple.
- While the apples cook in a smaller skillet cook the ground turkey over medium-high heat until fully cooked and showing no pink.
- Once the apples are done add the meat, salt, and poultry seasoning and stir until fully combined. Remove from heat.
- Slice a sweet potato in half, top with ⅕ of the hash and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
