This is another easy way of using up some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. It's easy to do, and really tastes great.
Turkey Hash from Leftovers
It's sometimes difficult to re-purpose leftover protein. When you cook a turkey, there's usually quite a bit left over, and you've got to do something with it. As much as I love to eat leftover turkey, stuffing, and gravy, it can still get to me after a while. This is one of those ways to use it up, and not realize your eating leftovers.
Within the recipe, I mention onions and peppers. Both of these contain a lot of moisture, and the potatoes will get soggy if you cook onions and peppers along with them. I'll usually cook them in a separate pan, and add them to the potatoes after both are cooked.
I'm sure the amount in the pan looks like a lot for 2 people, and it was. The other neat thing about making these is the fact that you can keep them in your refrigerator for a few days, and have them for breakfast again.
- 4 Large Potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil, as needed, for frying
- 1 Tablespoon Butter, as needed for frying
- 3 Tablespoons All American Steakhouse Blend
- 1 Teaspoon Coarse Kosher Salt
- 1/2 Pound Sliced Turkey Breast
1. Slice the potatoes into 1/8" strips. You can do this with either a knife, like I did this time, or with a mandolin as I did in my recipe for Shoe String Potatoes as Home Fries.
2. As you cut them, place them in a bowl of cold water to remove the surface starch.
Soaking them will help them remain separate while cooking.
3. Melt 1 Tablespoon of the butter long with 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pot. Drain the potatoes, add them to the pot, and stir it up well. Add a little more vegetable oil if it's needed. Cook over medium heat.
4. It'll take 15 - 20 minutes to cook the potatoes, stirring them every 5 minutes or so. When they're done, place them in a bowl.
5. Slice the turkey into strips while the potatoes are cooking.
6. Set them in the same pan as the potatoes with 1 teaspoon of Steakhouse Blend, and cook over medium heat.
7. When they're done, add them to the bowl with the potatoes and mix them up.
If you like onions and/or peppers with your potatoes, cook them in a separate pan while the potatoes are cooking. Both hold a lot of moisture, which will be absorbed by the potatoes, and make them soft.
8. Serve them by themselves with eggs on the side, or use them as the starch for more leftover turkey with gravy on both the meat and the Hash.
