Leftover Turkey and Vegetable Hash – #Sunday Supper

Thanksgiving! A whole holiday devoted to eating delicious food. Every year Craig and I alternate spending Thanksgiving with each of our families. This year we’re heading to my mom’s house where I’ll be cooking and Craig will be grilling our turkey.

I tend to overcook even when it’s just the two of us, so I really go overboard for the holidays. The result is usually a TON of leftovers. So, it only seems fitting that this week’s Sunday Supper theme is Thanksgiving leftovers. There are so many things you can do with your leftovers. Our family tradition is that Craig uses leftover turkey to make hash. He usually uses bacon, potatoes and onions with the leftover turkey. This is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I decided this year to kick it up a bit by adding even more leftovers.

This is a pretty casual recipe. Basically, assess what you have for leftover veggies and make a hash by frying everything up and adding some chopped up turkey. It’s simple, tasty and a healthy way to prevent all those tasty leftover from going to waste.

Here are some ideas of what you can add:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Roasted potatoes
  • Squash
  • Green Beans
  • Asparagus
  • Cauliflower
  • Carrots
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Spinach/Kale/Chard

Since I started cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I tend to favor simple roast veggies. I do this for two reasons: 1) to keep everything as healthy as I can, and 2) because throwing things in the oven is easy when you’re cooking a dozen different dishes.

So, for this hash, I used what I plan to have on hand after Thanksgiving dinner this year. Squash, Brussels sprouts and Carrots. Feel free to substitute whatever else you have. In addition, this is a great way to use of leftover INGREDIENTS from your meal. In this case, onions, leeks and leafy greens.

You can top this with fried or poached eggs or some leftover gravy or cranberry sauce. Get some crusty bread and you have an incredible meal. We ate this for dinner for two straight nights this week and it was so filling and fantastic!

    Easy, quick and all the best of Thanksgiving dinner!

    I love turning leftoveres into hash, but a veggie hash sounds amazing. Mine usually consists of potatoes, onions and peppers along with whatever meat I have in the fridge. I love this recipe! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. claire @ the realistic nutritionist November 18, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    I LOVE hash!!! What a fabulous turkey leftover idea :)

    What a great hash. You can put just about anything in there – great idea!

  6. Jen @JuanitasCocina November 18, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

    YUM! That fried egg on top is what’s making me drool!

  7. Amanda @ MarocMama November 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

    Fantastic idea! I’m thinking a few days after when there’s still some left but could be made into something entirely new.

  8. Patti November 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    This would be great anytime! Breakfast for dinner – love it!

  9. Jenn and Seth November 18, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    Oh my, with that egg piled on top, I think my husband would LOVE this :)

    Looks tasty and what a great idea for the squash that I never know what to do with.

  16. Sandi McKenna November 18, 2012 at 11:52 pm #

    Going to make this for breakfast on black Friday!!!

  17. Sheila November 19, 2012 at 2:06 am #

    I love breakfast food! This is a great way to use leftovers! Thanks for sharing.

  18. Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) November 19, 2012 at 2:50 am #

    This looks pretty perfect. Can’t wait for this Friday!

  19. Carla November 19, 2012 at 3:35 am #

    I’m starting to experiment more with hash, so I’ll have to add this one to my list!

  20. Family Foodie November 19, 2012 at 4:27 am #

    I am just like you… I always make too much! This is a recipe that I would welcome the extra leftovers to use in!

  21. The Wimpy Vegetarian November 19, 2012 at 6:29 am #

    Perfect!!! I love hash with an egg on top!! And your photos, particularly the top one, are great!!

  22. Laura Hunter November 19, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    Something like this sounds like just what I would need after such a heavy meal. We always serve a large platter of roasted veggies for our Holiday meals. But I often struggle with ideas of what to do with it the next day since roasted veggies don’t tend to make the best leftovers. I will give this a try.

  23. diabeticFoodie November 19, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    You are speaking my husband’s language – he’s a hash fiend. Think I’ll surprise him on Black Friday!

  24. Jennie @themessybakerblog November 19, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    I always go overboard, too! I just can’t help it; I love me some food. This hash is a brilliant way to utilize leftovers. I love it! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving at your mom’s house.

  25. Sarah November 19, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

    Perfect Thanksgiving morning after breakfast. It looks absolutely amazing and healthy too. You are so making me hungry. I can hear my tummy growling.

  26. Anne @ Webicurean November 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    I could go for some of that right now! Of course adding the egg on top makes it irresistible to me!

  27. CCU November 19, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    What an incredible way to use leftovers my friend, it looks awesome :D

    Cheers

    This looks fantastic, Dara! Not heavy like so many casseroles made with turkey…I love this idea! Love having you in the #SundaySupper group!

  29. Susan November 19, 2012 at 10:47 pm #

    I love any type of hash! Top it with a fried egg and you have the perfect meal.
