  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter

Tips & Notes

You can also try this recipe with leftover chicken instead of turkey.



  1. Put potatoes in large pot and cover with cold water. Simmer, partially covered, until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. While potatoes are cooling, melt 6 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the onions and peppers until soft and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add potatoes, turkey, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 15 minutes.
  4. Optional: Fry eggs in remaining tablespoon of butter and serve on top of hash.

    Thanks for the recipe. I’ve actually tried this once before and it is a little unusual, but still very good. The person who gave this to me soaked the turkey in a bit of water before sauteing it in butter. It plumped up the turkey a bit and made it a little more moist.
