Turkey Hash

I cook with ground turkey a lot.  I also cook with onions and garlic – a lot.  I just throw stuff together, but primarily flavor it with onions and garlic.  I am sure that I have stated this before because it is what I do.  Every once in awhile when I branch out . . . I am sure I have posted about it.  And, I am sure I have posted about me wanting to use different flavors.  I DO use different flavors, but onions and garlic is my default.  But the other night I wanted a different flavor.  This recipe does contain onions AND garlic, but they are not the predominant flavor.  As I was cooking this I had a thought and I think it turned out to be true.  My hubby doesn’t like corn-beef hash.  Half way through cooking I thought, “Oh no!  This is sort of “hash flavored” is he not going to like it?”  Well, it was not his favorite.  When he likes something he comments on it.  I was the only one complementing the chef that night.  AND the next night when we had it for leftovers.  So while I LOVED this, my hubby was ok with it.  So unfortunately this might not become a staple . . . although I will cook it every once in a while.


Turkey Hash

olive oil
1/4 of an onion
1 pound red skin potatoes
2 teaspoons basil
1 teaspoons parsley
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 C water
1 teaspoon powdered mustard
1 pound ground turkey
1 teaspoons salt
sprinkle of garlic salt
1 green bell pepper
black pepper (optional)

Pour some olive oil in a pan.  While the oil is heating chop the onion.  Put the onions in the pan, while they are heating cube the potatoes.  When the onions are translucent . . . or if you like them a little caramelized, add the potatoes.  Stir the potatoes. While they are cooking add the basil, let them cook.  Then add the parsley and bay leaf, let them cook some more.  Sprinkle the garlic salt on the potatoes.  Add the coriander.  Cook the potatoes until they start to brown.  Then add the water and powdered mustard.  Cook until the water evaporates.  Brown the potatoes some more, then add the turkey.  Add the salt . . . sprinkle on the garlic salt.  While all of this is cooking chop the bell pepper.  If you like your bell pepper cooked then add it well before the turkey is cooked.  If you are like me and you like it raw, then add it when the turkey is pretty much cooked.  If you like black pepper, add it.



So, I really liked this, but my hubby not so much.  But he is a good sport and he will eat it when I make it.  Thankfully he eats pretty much whatever I cook.  Whew!

The next night, I added corn to the left overs.  That was interesting . . . potatoes and corn.  Actually the potatoes were pretty much gone.   I liked the different flavor the corn added.  I don’t often cook with corn.

Do you like corn-beef hash?

  1. I don’t know what corned beef hash is but what prepared looks good.

    • I grew up eating corned-beef/corn-beef hash from a can. It smelled like canned dog food. Hash is meat with potatoes, onions, and spices. I think it might have peppers (bell). It is pretty good. My hubby had some a long time ago at a restaurant and got sick off of it so he doesn’t like it. And, as I said, I grew up eating the kind from a can. About three years ago I was in a restaurant and decided to try something I normally don’t eat and I got their corn-beef hash and it was awesome. It was not from a can, it was shredded beef, not like the canned mush. So, now I order it when we go out for breakfast. It is good.

      Thanks for thinking it looks good and letting me know! 🙂

    • I used to only use ground turkey in my recipes, but then we started buying grassfed beef, so I used beef. But hash is usually made with shredded beef. This was good. I like ground turkey.

    Oh you know I am going to have to try this one and soon! I am getting back to the whole 30 way of eating and this will fit right in! I love coriander I cook with it and cumin all the time. I might have to try it over a bed of riced cauliflower, yum! Oh and I also like corn beef and hash occasionally 🙂

    • I don’t use coriander. I am not a fan of some of the seeds, twigs, and leaves of some spices. But these get kind of crispy and crunchy. I hope you like it. I loved it. Can’t wait to do it again, but I have to wait a bit so as not to overwhelm my hubby! I bet it will be so yummy on riced cauliflower! Let me know.

        Yum! made it and Dave and I both like it…the first night we had it over riced sauteed cauliflower and then ate the leftovers on top of spaghetti squash, great both ways! I also just realized that while I cook with coriander all the time it is always ground coriander, so no seeds but I bet they would be good in this hash recipe. I also will omit the teaspoon of salt next time, I think with using garlic salt it would be salted enough for my taste. Thank you for the yummy recipe – I love it!!! I love how you create such yummy dishes that are just from basic fridge and pantry items 🙂

        • Ha, never thought of ground coriander! Ha! I probably use more salt than I write down for recipes. I know that people are “sensitive” to how much salt they use, so I don’t think I always document that extra sprinkle I put in. 🙂

          I am lucky to have a hubby that will eat pretty much whatever . . . so I can experiment. I just wish I had more time or perhaps to be more accurate . . . I wish I had less on my mind so that I could be more creative.

          Thank you so much for reading and always being one to try the recipes! Thanks for commenting. Love you!
