- 1lb organic ground turkey (extra-lean)
- 5 slices pastured bacon
- ½ tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 medium white onion
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 cups lacinato kale, destemmed
- 2 cups brussel sprouts
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
- ½ cup bone broth
Prepare and chop vegetables.
Place bacon onto room temperature cast-iron skillet and place on the stovetop. Cook over medium heat until crisp, flipping once to allow it to cook evenly.
Transfer bacon to a paper-towel lined plate and set aside.
Leave bacon grease in the skillet and turn heat up to medium-high.
Season ground turkey with dried thyme and ½ tsp of salt. Add to skillet and saute until cooked through, breaking up gently with a spatula.
Remove ground turkey from the skillet and transfer to a bowl. Set aside.
Grease the skillet with avocado oil and turn heat back down to medium.
Add onion and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add in sweet potato, brussel sprouts and garlic. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until veggies are softened.
Stir in lacinato kale, bone broth and remaining spices. Cook for a minute or two, until kale has wilted and broth has evaporated slightly.
Chop bacon into small pieces and add to skillet along with ground turkey. Turn off heat, salt to taste and serve.
