Vegetables, potatoes and leftover turkey make this turkey hash a hearty and satisfying meal! This is an easy dish that works well with leftovers!
I’m proud to have partnered with The Ohio Poultry Association to bring you this original recipe!
Whenever I have those days where the pantry and fridge look a little bare but I still need to get dinner served; I go to my favorite dish; hash. To me, hash means “throw whatever you have into the skillet”. This is such an easy dinner that works well with almost anything you have in the fridge!
This recipe could be made entirely from scratch or with leftover ingredients. I started this dish off with a little bacon (because everything should start with bacon) . I wanted to use the bacon grease to give flavor to my Brussels sprouts. I used fresh sprouts, I’ll talk about how to use leftover vegetables later in this post.
The potatoes will take some time to cook. I found that covering them really helped with the cook process and not stirring them gave them the crispy exterior that I was looking for in my potatoes. Once the potatoes were ready I added back my vegetables and my leftover turkey meat.
In a seperate skillet I cooked up eggs. Since I love a runny yolk with my potatoes I didn’t cook my eggs as long. You cook your eggs to your desired degree of doness and then place them over the hash just before serving. There you go; a simple and hearty turkey hash that will add a little breakfast to your dinner!
Turkey Hash With Leftovers:
Reheat leftover turkey to 165°F before serving, and enjoy leftovers within 3-4 days.
If you are using leftover vegetables (creamed vegetables will not work with this recipe), add them AFTER you cook the potatoes. Chances are those vegetables have already been seasoned; you simple need to warm them up before serving. Almost any vegetable will work; green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, asparagus, etc.
Believe it or not you could also use leftover mashed potatoes! Warm your vegetables in the bacon grease, add your turkey and spread leftover mashed potatoes over the top. Place skillet (oven proof) under the broiler for just a minute or two. Serve your eggs on the side.
The turkey hash is hearty and filling! It is a great way to use up leftovers!
