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.
- Tbs butter, oil, or a mixture of both
- 1/2 an onion, diced
- a bit of rosemary
- 2 cups chopped cooked 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.
