Hey friends! Today I’ve got some beseeching to do because this is just one of those dishes that you can’t possibly imagine how delicious it is until you taste it.

It’s just one of those dishes where the flavors and textures come together to warm your insides and fill you with comfort. This is the ultimate after-Thanksgiving comfort food and will become a new tradition at your house! It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even supper, which is when we usually have it.

Pick up whatever ingredients you don’t have when you’re shopping this week and have them on hand when the turkey leftovers are waiting on ya! The instructions are as simple as adding the ingredients to a skillet and cooking until heated through.

Helpful Kitchen Tools

How to Make Your Turkey Hash Recipe

Cook hash browns and Season All in skillet until golden brown.

Place your oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Add potatoes and some Season All.

Cook, stirring often, until tender and golden brown.

Note: A nonstick skillet is best for this. 

Add remaining ingredients and cook for a few minutes until gravy thickens.

Add in chopped turkey, turkey gravy, and a little more Season All.

Continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture is heated through and thickens (about 3-4 minutes).

This is excellent on its own or served with your choice of bacon and some eggs.

Enjoy your plate of comfort! 


Store leftover turkey hash in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I recommend reheating on the stovetop until heated through.

Recipe Notes

  • This is also a great basic hash recipe that you can adapt to what you have on hand. To make a delicious beef hash, use leftover beef roast or ground beef and a can of beef gravy instead of turkey. You can also use ground turkey throughout the year with canned turkey gravy.
  • Instead of gravy, you can use chicken broth or something similar.
  • If you can’t find hash browns with onions and peppers, then you can chop some out and add them to your recipe separately.
  • For extra flavor, add a teaspoon of minced garlic.
  • Instead of cubed hash browns, you can use cubed potatoes if you have some leftovers as well. I just like to keep things quick, easy, and simple, ya know? If using actual potatoes, I’d boil them first for about 5 minutes before adding them to the skillet to make crispy potatoes.
  • Instead of Season All, use your preferred seasoning. I think this would also taste delicious with Italian seasoning or dried herbs like rosemary, oregano, and thyme. Season All is made of paprika, black pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and a hint of chili powder if you want to use a combination of those spices to make your own homemade version.
  • The true spirit of hash is that you can add anything to the skillet. So if you have extra vegetables or greens you want to use up, dice them up and toss them in. How about leftover dressing/stuffing? Add a cup or so to your turkey hash recipe as well.

Recipe FAQs

What is turkey hash made of?

Turkey hash was created to use up leftovers. It’s typically a combination of chopped meat, potatoes, and fried onions. It’s sometimes also called potato hash, which is the same dish, just a different name.

How do you serve turkey hash?

With potatoes, vegetables, and chopped meat, turkey hash is the perfect main meal as is. However, I love serving it for breakfast with crispy bacon strips and eggs (whether they’re poached, scrambled, or fried eggs). You can also add a garnish of chopped chives, green onion, or fresh parsley.

How do you make turkey cranberry hash?

Have some leftover cranberry sauce? Add 1/2 a cup of dried cranberries or cranberry sauce to your hash to make turkey cranberry hash.

    Yummy. TY. Even with just cooking a turkey breast we have lots of leftovers between just the two of us. this is gonna be great. I’m gonna put some of the breast in the freezer so I can make this a few weeks later too.

  2. Oh MY! Sounds delicious!!! I will try to get my sister to gift me with some leftover turkey next week so that I can try this the day after!!!

  3. I don’t add the gravy- I just pass it since some like a lot & some don’t like much ( or any). Friend’s son wraps it in a tortilla!

  4. I made has in much the same way but I had left over chuck steak and Ore Ida hash browns. I add catsup and Worcestershire, sautéed onion sometimes a little cheese. Then fried eggs on top. I will be trying your version and probably add a fried egg or two.
