Ground Turkey Sweet Potato “Skillet”

I had to double up this recipe because I had guests over. Since I had such big quantities I had to put mine in two separate skillets then mix together at the end. I will be giving you the downgraded recipe for everyone convenience!

  • 1 lbs extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup onions, diced
  • ½ cup yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 ½ cup sweet potato, diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (Optional) I didn’t use since I am Dairy Free
