This Whole30 turkey breakfast skillet is a quick and easy, family friendly egg free breakfast. It’s perfect for meal prep, and you can always add an egg to it! It’s filling and hearty, and full of flavorful veggies and spices. One pan meals are the way to go for fast meal prepping, and this Whole30 breakfast skillet is the ticket to an easy morning!
One Pan Wonders
One pan meals have always been my favorite. When I started my first Whole30, I learned fairly quickly that I just didn’t have the time to make recipes that required a ton of work (and dishes!). When I started throwing everything into one pan or skillet, life got a lot better and healthy eating got a lot easier. So, even now, I still love to make everything in one skillet when possible or when I’m in a hurry!
Especially for meal prepping purposes, doing a skillet meal while another recipe cooks in the slow cooker and in the oven dramatically reduces the time I spend prepping and the dishes that I have to do at the end. I come out of it with 3 recipes that divide out into quite a few meals for the week! This Whole30 turkey breakfast skillet is a perfect example of how I knock out breakfast for the first few days of my week with little effort.
Make it Your Own
Another reason breakfast skillets work so well for me, and why you’ll find so many of them on my website, is because they’re easy to customize for everyone. This is helpful for a few reasons for my family. The first being that I’m not a fan of re-heated eggs, so by making an egg-free Whole30 breakfast, I’m able to eat it without. Or, the morning I’m going to eat the meal prepped meal, I can quickly scramble a few eggs and add it. My boyfriend can pack these with hardboiled eggs and be just fine eating them later!
Breakfast skillets are also great because you can substitute any veggie you have on hand, or any veggie you prefer. While this recipe uses green pepper, you could easily swap it for zucchini! There’s also no shortage of ways you can change the flavors either. My boyfriend loves spicy, and loves sauces, so he always adds hot sauce. While I enjoy them plain with the spices I used in the recipe, or with some Primal Kitchen ranch.
You can also use a different protein if you don’t have turkey, or want to use pork or chicken instead. Any ground meat would work!

Whole30 Turkey Breakfast Skillet: Paleo Egg Free Breakfast
- Prep Time: 10
- Cook Time: 20
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: Serves 3-4 1x
- Category: Breakfast
- Method: Skillet
- Cuisine: American
- 1 pound ground turkey (can sub for ground pork or chicken)
- 2 cups diced sweet potato (with or without skin)
- 1/2 green pepper, diced
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Heat oil in a large cast iron pan. Add minced garlic and diced sweet potato once hot. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to brown but not cook through
- Add the ground turkey and all spices and brown turkey for about 5 minutes
- When turkey is cooked halfway through, add in green pepper and onion. Stir to combine and cook an additional 5-7 minutes until green pepper and onion are fork tender (or done to your liking)

Turkey can release a lot of liquid when cooked. If this happens, simply move pan over to the sink and drain excess water from the pan and return to the stove before adding the green pepper and onion in step 3.

Another hit from Bailey!!
Woohoo! Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed!! <3 - B
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I relate so much to so many of your posts and your progress is very inspirational
I have been doing a combination of paleo, keto and whole30. Your recipes look so good but I probably wont end up making any of them because I don’t want to figure out the macros. If I could make a suggestion? You would get a much better following if you post macro and nutritional information with your recipes. I know that would really help me!!!!
Thanks and best of luck on your continued journey!
Over half of our recipes have macros added. It’s a manual process for us to do, too, so you can imagine how long it takes to do every recipe on this website. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Quite delicious!!! Doing my first whole30 round and will certainly be making this recipe again!
I’m so glad you liked it! Thank you so much for coming back and letting me know. And good luck with your round! You can do it! <3 - B
Loved this! I made this for dinner, but an egg would be a perfect addition. I used sweet potatoes, zucchini, red onions and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Delish????
Sounds so good!! Thank you so much!
Absolutely AMAZING; I will definitely be making this a staple / “go-to” item in my meal plans! Thank you!
Thank you, Cindy! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! 🙂
