Holiday Turkey Hash


  • ½ cup Sliced Almonds
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted Butter
  • ½ cup Yellow Onion , chopped
  • 2 large Garlic Cloves , minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • ½ cup Red Pepper , finely chopped
  • 3 cups cold cooked Turkey , chopped
  • 1 cup cold Dressing/Stuffing
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper , ground
  • 2/3 cup Gravy or Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Garnish: chopped Italian Parsley
  • Optional: batch of Roasted Garlic Buttermilk Smashed Potatoes


In a large, heavy skillet (dry) over medium-high heat, place sliced almonds. Stir constantly (to avoid burning) until the almonds begin to turn light golden brown; 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and red pepper to the skillet and sauté, stirring constantly until the onions begin to become translucent.

Add the turkey, dressing, salt and pepper; stir to mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through; about 5 minutes.
Add the gravy/cream and almonds to the skillet. Cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently, scrapping the bottom of the skillet to incorporate the browned bits into the mixture. Allow mixture to sit a few minutes in between stirring to develop a light golden crust. Hash should still be moist when done; about 5-10 minutes.

Garnish with chopped Italian parsley and serve immediately. If desired serve turkey holiday hash over a heaping serving of Roasted Garlic Buttermilk Smashed Potatoes.
