How To Make Turkey Hash


The heavenly aroma still hung in the house. But it was gone, all gone! No turkey! No turkey sandwiches! No turkey salad! No turkey gravy! Turkey Hash! Turkey a la King! Or gallons of turkey soup! Gone, ALL GONE!

Did someone say turkey hash?

For years I’ve been hearing that speech and thinking turkey hash would be a good idea. Now I can confirm: It’s a very good idea. Basically the same as corned beef hash, but with turkey instead.

Just dice up your leftover turkey, and a potato or two, and some onion if you like.

Melt some bacon fat in a pan and put the potatoes in, along with some salt and pepper.

Stir them around a bit over medium heat until cooked all the way through, then add the turkey (and onion, if you’re using it).

Toss everything together while the turkey re-heats.

And that’s it. A delicious breakfast in no time.


I could leave it at that, but that last shot really looks better as video.
