An excellent way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or other holiday dinners, this hearty hash is both delicious and quick. It incorporates the cooked turkey with leftover diced potatoes and other vegetables to create a satisfying meal that ensures no food goes to waste.

A hash is any dish that includes chopped meat, potatoes, and onions. It's typically fried in a skillet, creating a one-dish meal that is infinitely customizable to whatever you have around at the moment. This turkey hash recipe follows that resourceful formula, featuring diced turkey, onion, and potatoes along with celery, bell pepper, and parsley. It's made even more delicious with turkey gravy and will quickly use up any leftovers from your big holiday meals.

In the true spirit of a hash, all sorts of things can be tossed into this savory dish. For instance, you can replace the red bell pepper with diced pimientos, add mushrooms, carrots, peas, or corn, or toss in chopped rutabaga if you like. If you have ham or bacon on hand, add those as well. All you really need to complete the meal is some bread; homemade bread is a fantastic option, though any rustic bread from the bakery will work out great, too.

Recipe Variations

  • The recipe is really quite versatile. Make it with or without the bell pepper or add sliced mushrooms, along with the celery and onion.
  • If you have lots of leftover vegetables along with the turkey, dice them and use some in the hash.
  • Carrots, rutabaga, peas, or corn would be great additions, or add some finely chopped ham or bacon for a smoky flavor.
