Turkey, Sage and Apple Hash

This turkey hash is an easy one-pot recipe that makes a great lazy weekend brunch, good to share with friends or you could even save the leftovers for a Monday morning treat.  The flavours of turkey, sweet potato, cranberry, apple and sage go so well together.  It’s such a classic combination.  It also makes a nice change from bacon and sausages!  And it’s a healthy cooked breakfast option with added veggies and fruit.

It can also a great way of using up leftover turkey from Christmas.  You can start by peeling and chopping the onion and then prepare the rest of the ingredients as it cooks.  I made a batch of this last year, along with turkey curry and turkey casserole… yes we had a lot of leftovers to get through!  What’s your favourite way to use up extra Christmas turkey?

Adapting the recipe

This recipe is already free from all top 14 common allergens.  To make it vegan, use vegan mince or tofu.  I don’t think this recipe can be made low FODMAP as onion, sweet potato and apple are all high FODMAP foods, in the quantities used in this recipe.

Here’s a quick video I created showing you how to make turkey hash.  I don’t know why I took the photos in portrait orientation! Lesson learned for next time!  I do have some more (non-portrait!) recipe vidoes on my YouTube channel.  Let me know if you prefer videos and I’ll make more of them! Scroll down for the full recipe.
