Turkey (or Chicken) Hash

Do you still have some leftover turkey (does it seem to be multiplying in the refrigerator behind closed doors?!) Maybe some sweet potatoes too?

Here is a great recipe that makes a good hearty breakfast, but is equally delicious for lunch or dinner!   The sweet potatoes give this dish a slightly sweet flavor. BTW, you can use whatever leftover root vegetables and meat you may have and it tastes just as good.


Turkey (or Chicken) Hash

Makes 3-4 servingsTurkey-Hash


2 tbsp + 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

1 small red onion, chopped

½ cup carrot, chopped (about1 small carrot)

½ cup celery, chopped (about 1 small stalk)

2 cups cooked turkey or chicken, cubed

2 cups leftover sweet potatoes, cubed

1 cup green vegetable, chopped (try broccoli, brussels sprouts, green beans, peas)

¼ cup broth or water

3-4 eggs

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

garnish: chopped fresh parsley



  1. Heat oil in skillet, add onion, celery and carrot. Cook until vegetables are soft, 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add turkey, sweet potatoes, and vegetables. Cook until heated through, adding broth/water if necessary to moisten.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, in separate skillet, heat oil and add eggs. Cook to your liking: sunny side up, over easy, even scrambled!
  5. Serve the hash with a fried egg over each serving. Sprinkle with parsley.
