Turkey Hash
Submitted By: Taz


1 lb Cooked Turkey* - cut into small pieces
1 lb Red or Russet Potatoes - can substitute sweet potatoes if desired
2 cloves Fresh Garlic - minced
1 medium Onion - small chopped
1 Large Red Bell Pepper - cored and cut into ¼ inch pieces
3 Tbs Unsalted Butter - divided
Kosher Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper to taste
½ tsp Fresh Oregano - chopped
⅓ tsp Fresh Thyme - chopped
1 Cup Leftover Stuffing from Turkey Dinner
¼ Cup Chicken/Turkey Stock
Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley - for garnish

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF - Use a fork to poke 8-12 sets of holes all over your potatoes - Rub potatoes with a little olive oil and place on a baking sheet - Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and place in the top third of the oven - Bake for 1 - 1 ¼ hours or until cooked through - Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature - Cut potatoes into ¼ - ½ in cubes and set aside
  2. Preheat a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat - Melt 2 Tbs of the butter and add the onion, bell pepper, and salt and pepper to taste (apx ¼ tsp each) - Sauté until onions are tender and slightly browned (apx 10 minutes) - Add garlic and continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes
  3. Add the turkey and continue to sauté until slightly browned (apx 5 minutes)
  4. Add the remaining Tbs of butter along with the potatoes and oregano and thyme (if using) - mix well to ensure that all of the potatoes are coated in the butter
  5. OPTIONAL - Add leftover stuffing and give it a good mix - Add the turkey/chicken stock and allow to cook (stirring frequently) until all of the liquid is absorbed
  6. Use a spatula to press everything into a 'pancake' - Place a heatproof plate or second skillet on top of 'pancake and allow to cook undisturbed for 6-10 minutes until browned and crispy
  7. Turn hash as best you can (DO NOT stir - flip in sections) - Press everything down into a 'pancake' again - return heatproof plate or skillet to the top of the hash and allow to cook undisturbed for another 5-8 minutes
  8. Serve hot (garnished if desired) on its own, with 1-2 fried eggs per person on top, or along with toast, bacon, and/or hot sauce/ketchup (or some leftover gravy for that true holiday flavor!)
* Leftover turkey from Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner works great for this!
