I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving?
Now that we’ve gotten through our first big holiday, let the shopping begin!
Yes, my mind always goes to shopping first. But before we start shopping, we must eat.
My Leftover Turkey Hash is the perfect dish to make with all that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!
I smoked two turkeys because we knew one would not be enough.
I say if you’re going to cook for the holidays then go big!
The more food you cook, the more different leftover dishes you can invent.
My family loves meat and potatoes and they also love hash.
I decided to take my smoked turkey, dice that baby up and make a big pot of cheesy potato goodness!
The key to this dish is to pre-boil the potatoes for about 5 minute so they’re tender and ready to crisp up in the olive oil.
After I boiled the potatoes, I sauteed up a bunch of white onions and garlic then added the precooked potatoes and lots of spices to the pan.
After about 5 minutes, add the diced turkey and cook 5 more minutes.
Now for the best part, top the hash with a whole bunch of cheese, I mean as much cheese as you like!
Lastly, place the hash under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
Garnish with green onions.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and hot buttered toast with lots of jam!
BTW: A sneak peek.
I receive numerous emails daily about what’s my favorite things in the cooking world so I am creating a 21 Days Until Christmas Gift Guide/Favorite Things list.
I decided to give you a sneak peek of my favorite gumbo bowls.
These white Luminous Pasta bowls are from Pier-1 Imports and I am telling ya’ they’re the perfect gumbo eating bowls.
Grant it, their pasta bowls, I think pasta serving bowls, but don’t judge folks, gumbo is meant to be enjoyed in large quantities, lol!
Don’t forget to check back in the next couple of days when we kick off 21 Days Until Christmas Gift Guide/Favorite Things list!

I love hash. Smoked turkey would be a plus in this dish. I like the spices you chose to highlight the dish.
I’m also a big fan of hash is this looks like a perfect way to start the day….especially if it was a long night of catching the brown bottle flu lol 🙂 Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe. Cheers!
