As you may have noticed by the recipes I’ve been sharing lately, I’m on a bit of a skillet hash kick. Skillet hashes are just so easy and they save so well! I can make breakfast ONCE and eat it ALL WEEK.

Ain’t nobody got time to cook breakfast every single day, y’know?

Especially not those of us with busy lives jam-packed full of work, long commutes, families, extra-curricular activities, and chronic fatigue (thanks but no thanks, autoimmune disease).

What ingredients are in this Turkey Apple Breakfast Hash?

This Turkey Apple Breakfast Hash is the flavor of a crisp fall morning, jumping into a pile of freshly raked leaves and sipping a hot beverage by the fire, all rolled into one! I mean, what says autumn more than savory turkey, nutty acorn squash and juicy apples combined with the sweet, yet savory warmth of sage and cinnamon? Answer: nothing.

I don’t know about you, but I think I’m just about ready for summer to be over and fall to start working its way in. Especially if it means I get to eat more of this breakfast hash. ?

So, what ingredients do you need to make this Turkey Apple Breakfast Hash?

  • Ground turkey.
    • You could use another ground or sliced meat here, but the flavor of turkey just combines so beautifully with autumn fruits and vegetables.
    • If you have leftover shredded turkey, that could also be delicious!
  • Carrots.
  • Onions.
  • Acorn squash.
    • Butternut squash would also work well here.
  • Apples.
    • Fuji and Gala are my favorites, but you could use almost any apple here.
  • Rainbow chard.
    • Or another hearty green, like Swiss chard, kale, beet greens, or even spinach would work well here, as well.
  • Ground sage and cinnamon.
    • Spices can either make or break a dish, and these babies right here are really the icing on the autumnal cake.
