How is it that you can take the same three basic ingredients from Thursday and turn them into something that tastes different? Even though I didn’t cook the turkey this year, my sister generously sent me home with some leftover turkey and gravy. Dinner last night was my youngest’s favorite: turkey hash. I used frozen diced potatoes last night but usually just peel, dice, and cook the potatoes from scratch, or use leftover baked potatoes. The measurements aren’t exact by any means. I make beef hash with leftover roast beef pretty much the same way.
3 Tbs butter, oil, or a mixture of both
1/2 an onion, diced
a bit of rosemary
2 cups chopped turkey
2 cups diced cooked potatoes
1 cup or so of gravy
Heat the oil and butter over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, then stir in the rosemary. Add the turkey and potatoes and stir, then let sit until the potatoes are a bit crispy. Stir again and get the other sides of the potatoes crispy. This is where my impatience kills me. You have to let the potatoes sit a bit. They won’t get crispy if you keep stirring them. Once they’re done to your liking, mix the gravy in and heat, then serve.0
