Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, yay! Don’t forget to wear your stretchy pants. In fact, maybe grab an extra pair or two if you’re planning on enjoying any leftovers. Is it weird that we’re already planning our week after Thanksgiving meals? If your house is anything like mine was growing, you will totally get this. Thanksgivings in my family meant great company and delicious food, but always way too much of it. Not a bad a problem to have i’ll admit, but turkey sandwiches for a week doesn’t cut it anymore. Bringing us to this genius recipe for Turkey Hash, which utilizes your thanksgiving leftovers.
So, obviously due to my childhood, it’s not weird that I am already thinking what to do with my leftovers, it’s just good planning. After all, you’ve got to be a good planner to run a food blog. Anyways, leftovers or not, this is stellar recipe to keep on hand. You could probably substitute turkey for chicken as needed, which is brilliant and I will be doing that.
But while you have it, use that turkey friends. Shred it up and add it to the skillet that’s filled with onions, celery, potatoes, rosemary, leftover gravy, and of course leftover turkey. Most of these ingredients I already have, and I’m betting that i’m not alone.
As we finish up this blog post, I want to take the time to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family/friends, delicious food, and lots of laughter. And don’t forget to share what and who you are grateful for. Personally, I am grateful for the usual….friends, family, my husband and fur baby, and last but not least all the incredible food of course!
