Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet

Making a meal in under 30 minutes is a must when you have a family clamoring for dinner.  If you prep ahead and dice or slice the vegetables early, you can make this in even less time!

I use a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet, but you may find you already have a favorite well worn cast iron skillet on hand.  It truly is one of the best kitchen tools you can invest in buying.  They are heavy duty, can be a nonstick surface when cured properly, and are usually large enough to cook a full meal in like this easy sweet potato skillet recipe.
