Turkey Medallions with Sweet Potato-Walnut Mash - Delicious Decisions



  1. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper over both sides of the turkey.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the turkey for 2 minutes on each side, or until browned. (The turkey won't be done at this point.) Transfer to a large plate.
  3. In the same skillet, stir together the sweet potatoes and onion. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 7 minutes, or until the onion is golden, stirring frequently.
  4. Stir in the apple, cinnamon, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Place the turkey medallions among the sweet potato and apple slices. Pour in 2/3 cup cider. Bring to a boil, still over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the turkey is no longer pink in the center and the sweet potatoes are tender. Remove from the heat. Transfer the turkey to a separate large plate, leaving the sweet potato mixture in the skillet. Cover the turkey loosely to keep warm.
  6. Using a potato masher, mash the sweet potato mixture. Stir in the walnuts. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to plates.
  7. Quickly pour the remaining 1/4 cup cider into the skillet, scraping to dislodge any browned bits. Stir in the mustard, green onions, and final pinch of pepper. Remove from the heat.
  8. Serve the turkey on the sweet potato mixture. Drizzle the sauce over the turkey.
