Turkey Hash

Got tons of leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Put it to use with this great breakfast hash.

Chicken hash was one of Thomas Jefferson’s favorite breakfast dishes. This version has been adapted so you can use leftover turkey. If you have 2 cups of leftover potatoes, too, chop them and use them in place of the 2 medium potatoes.
