Recipe: Turkey Hash

Turkey Hash

Chicken hash was one of thomas Jefferson's favorite breakfast dishes. This version has been adapted so you can use leftover turkey. If you have 2 cups of leftover potatoes, too, chop them and use them in place of the 2 medium potatoes.

Preparation time: 20 minutes.
Cooking time: 33 minutes.
Makes 3 servings.

2 medium-sized potatoes (peeled and choopped)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium-size yellow onion (chopped)
1 small sweet green or red pepper (chopped)
2 cups chopped cooked turkey
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lower-sodium chicken broth

Cooking Directions:
Step 1: In a small saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain.

Step 2: In a 10-inch skillet, melt butter over moderate heat. Add the onion and green pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in potatoes, turkey, rosemary, black pepper, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Stir in chicken broth. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more or until it has a desired consistency.

For Chicken Hash: Prepare for Turkey Hash by substituting 2 cups chopped cooked chicken for the turkey and 1/4 cup leftover or canned chicken gravy for the chicken broth.
