Using leftover turkey, gravy and herbs, this turkey hash is the perfect leftover Thanksgiving recipe that is quick and easy to prepare.
Thanksgiving is officially over, which means everywhere you look now will be about Christmas. But part of the appeal of Thanksgiving for me is not just the day of, but the following days. You know what I’m talking about here… it’s all about the leftovers. And today I’m sharing this turkey hash that is easy to put together and can really be customized based off what you have after the holiday.
You may be asking, how did you get this post up and running so quickly after Thanksgiving? You may also be asking, did you make turkey before Thanksgiving? Why yes I did! As you might recall if you follow this blog, I shared an Instant Pot turkey breast recipe last week. Hey I know Thanksgiving is known as Turkey Day, but I mean that doesn’t have to be the ONLY DAY we enjoy turkey! So to answer a dirty little secret, yes this hash wash made before Thanksgiving even happened! Just means Lauren and I have turkey multiple times this year.
To me, making dishes with leftovers for Thanksgiving is about capitalizing on what you enjoy most. And with this Thanksgiving hash, the turkey and gravy are really the stars. Speaking of gravy, if you don’t have a great recipe, try this easy turkey gravy recipe out! While I used fresh potatoes, you could use leftover mashed potatoes to make a version of this. There really isn’t much better than this simple hash.
