Leftover Turkey Hash with Kale

Leftover Turkey Hash with Kale

I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about how much I love kale.  It’s my new favorite veg.  I’m surprised I haven’t actually done a post on it.  I love it as a salad, a sautéed side, in pastas and on pizzas.  This was something I dreamed up before we had even cooked our turkey, and it did not disappoint.

Peel and wash four potatoes.


Chop them into very small pieces.


Place in a bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes.


Saute in a large skillet on medium high with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil.


Meanwhile, chop 1 cup of turkey.  I used dark meat for this.


Turn the potatoes as they start to brown in the skillet.  Add more oil if necessary and salt well.


Chop 2 cups of washed kale.


I had some leftover thyme from Thanksgiving, but you could use any herb you have – rosemary, sage or parsley.


See the pretty green color?  The potatoes are browning nicely.


Add turkey and kale to the skillet.


Stir until kale cooks down a little and starts to wilt.  Add some salt and cracked pepper.  You could also add a little crushed red pepper flakes.  I’ll be trying that next time.


Top with a fried egg and serve with a little cracked pepper on the egg.
