Recipe Ingredients

  • Unsalted butter – turkey and butter just go together.
  • Sweet onion, green bell pepper, russet potatoes, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage – all ingredients that add flavor and texture.
  • Turkey – this dish is best with leftover turkey.
  • Salt and black pepper – enhances the flavor.
  • Turkey gravy – use your leftover gravy.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and pepper and cook for 3 minutes or until onion starts to get translucent.
  2. Add the potatoes and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add turkey, garlic, herbs, salt and black pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until potatoes are starting to char.
  4. Check for seasoning and serve with leftover gravy.

Side Dish Options

Turkey hash is pretty much a complete dish. The only thing you could do is add more vegetables or mix up the type of potatoes you use.

Can I Use Mashed Potatoes?

Yes, but the consistency will be different. Also you only need to heat the potatoes through and get a crust since they are already cooked.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Be consistent when cutting the potatoes so they will cook evenly.
  • Add cold butter to a cold skillet and let heat up to proper temperature before adding the onion and pepper. You’ll know it is ready when the oil starts to shimmer.
  • When cooking the hash, do not move around with the spoon constantly so you can form a nice charred crust.
  • Leftovers will store well in the fridge for 2-3 days in an air-tight container or be frozen for 3 months.
