Simple Turkey Hash

I made a really easy dinner last night that was more of a refrigerator raid than anything else.  I had in my possession leftover smoked turkey, scraps from about 1 yellow onion, 1 russet potato, eggs,  worchestershire sauce, and Frank’s hot sauce.  For those readers who like corned beef hash, I think you know where I’m going with this.  I made turkey hash and it was really good.  I liked the smokiness in the turkey as it paired nicely with the meaty flavor of the worchestershire sauce.  Not to mention that hash is just one of the great pleasures in life.  After topping the hash with some over-easy eggs and some more hot sauce, it was pretty much heaven on a plate.  Here’s a really rough recipe but hey, it’s hash, just throw it together already:

Simple Turkey Hash

1 onion, chopped

3 T butter

1 russet potato, cut into 1/4 inch cubes and boiled till just about tender

1 green or red bell pepper (optional), chopped

2 cups leftover smoked turkey

Worchestershire sauce, to taste,

Hot sauce, to taste,

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Over-easy eggs, as many as you want to eat

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet, preferably cast-iron, over medium heat.  Add the onions (and peppers if using) and saute until they being to color.  Add the potatoes and turkey and a sprinkle the mixture with the Worchestershire and hot sauces and pepper.  Taste and adjust any seasoning.  Saute, turning occasionally until the mixture is heated through and beginning to crisp.  Serve with over-easy eggs. 

Like I said, really simple but really satisfying.  Here’s a picture:
