Sweet Potato & Turkey Hash

I love creating entirely new recipes using leftovers!  It makes the leftovers not seem too much like leftovers.  I made this Sweet Potato & Turkey Hash using up our Thanksgiving leftovers (but it would also work with Christmas leftovers too).  A bonus is that this recipe also works as a breakfast, lunch, or supper!  Oh that’s right….turkey day leftovers that will blow your socks off!

We love hash over here…pretty much every meat has been turned into some form of hash over the last couple years.  I think it could quite possibly be one of the world’s best meals.

Sweet Potato & Turkey Hash #15MinuteSuppers
  • ~ 2 leftover sweet potatoes, diced
  • ~2 cups leftover turkey, diced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ½ jalapeno, finely minced
  • 4 fried eggs (1 per person)
  • ½ tsp ground sage
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • olive oil or garlic olive oil for cooking
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • avocado and bacon crumbles, optional
  1. Heat about 1 tbl of garlic olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add cubed sweet potatoes and let cook for 1-2 minutes without turning so that the outsides edges crisp up. Stir and repeat until potatoes are crisp on all sides. Remove from pan.
  2. Add another 1 tbl of garlic olive oil to pan and add pepper, onion, and jalapeno, cooking until translucent (about 3-4 minutes), then add garlic. Cook for one minute and push onion/peppers aside and add turkey. Heat for 1-2 minutes then add sage and thyme.
  3. Spray a small pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat for a minute before gently cracking over pan. Cook gently over medium heat for 2 minutes and then flip to cook other side 1 minute if desired.

  1. This does sound delicious! I’ve got a lot of leftovers sitting in my freezer and I like finding new recipes to use them up in. This would be a nice break from turkey casserole and soup!

    • I wanted something totally different from the normal turkey day leftovers! I’ve done all the soups, casseroles, etc and wanted something different this year. Hope you like it!
