Turkey Hash

When I was a kid I fondly remember the nights or evenings that my mom had to work and left dad with the big task of cooking dinner. I fondly remember these nights because my dad always took great pride in the concoctions he came up with.

My dad grew up in a massive family of ten children. So he always remembered his mom making big pots of soups or stews with fresh veggies from the garden and whatever canned goods were in the cupboards. No recipes involved. 

Nine out of ten times he cooked for us some form of chilli which was always delicious (besides the time he cut up hot dogs and put them in there lmao). But he had another trick up his sleeve too. He called this concoction “who hash” as it was just after Christmas and we had been watching the grinch!

This dish is inspired by my dads who hash. It resembles just getting creative and throwing what you have in a big skillet or pot. It’s an easy and healthy recipe with chopped veggies (which could be straight from the garden). I use ground turkey here but you could very well use chopped leftover turkey from thanksgiving or Christmas. 

You can get creative as you want with this one as my recipe is just the base idea!
