Slim Down & Fill Up: Breakfast Recipe

Turkey and sweet potato hash browns with eggs

Breakfast can get monotonous.

Eggs all the time is boring. Or maybe you can’t eat eggs and have a hard time finding good breakfast options. Either way, it’s easy to get in a rut with your morning meals.

Try mixing it up with this hearty recipe.

Why It Works For Fat Loss

This recipe has a good balance of everything you need as part of your fat loss diet. (It’s also easily adaptable for any diet.)

It’s loaded with protein, veggies, and healthy fat. It also has healthy carbs, and the turnips (one of my favorite parts) are delicious, filling, and lower calorie than just filling your plate with potatoes.

This is my favorite non-egg breakfast I’ve adapted from Precision Nutrition’s Gourmet Nutrition Cookbook. But if you can’t handle not having eggs, I’ve found covering this meal with an over easy egg is delicious!

PRO TIP: Double the recipe and refrigerate the leftovers for a quick breakfast another day. I also use frozen, chopped sweet potatoes to save a bit of time in the morning.

Turkey Sausage and Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Serving: 4 small servings


  • 16 oz turkey sausage

  • 1 cup water

  • 1⁄2 cup turnip, medium diced

  • 1 cup sweet potatoes, medium diced

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, minced

  • 1⁄8 tsp cinnamon

  • 1⁄8 tsp salt

  • 1 pinch pepper

  • 1 pinch paprika


Chop, then saute turkey sausage. While the sausage is cooking, preheat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add water, turnip and yams. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain water and return to heat. Add butter and sauté until nicely browned. Add garlic, cinnamon, salt, pepper, and paprika and cook for 1 minute more. Serve turkey sausage and hash browns together on a plate.
