Hi everyone! I'm Shannah from Just Us Four back again to share with you another recipe.  For us, once the weather gets nice, we try to make dinner as simply as possible with as few dishes to do.  We want to be spending our time outdoors and not slaving over the stove or washing countless dishes in the sink!  This one one pot turkey and sweet potato recipe is perfect for just those nights. It is full of flavor but cooks fast and uses very few dishes.

Delicious one pot meal made with turkey and sweet potatoes. So yummy! #recipes

I love cooking with sweet potatoes because they have a lot of nutritional value that you don't get from a regular spud.  Plus, they add such a nice color to any meal!  I, honestly, used to hate them because the only way I had ever had sweet potatoes was doused in sugar and syrup and then topped with marshmallows...way too sweet for me.  In this dish, the sweet potatoes add a little hint of sweet flavor but definitely don't overpower it.
