Spicy Turkey and Egg Hash

A hash of fried potatoes with chopped turkey breast, stirred with eggs.

Spicy Turkey and Egg Hash

I so love breakfast foods. I love food and eating, but I really enjoy a good breakfast.

But seriously, since I have the time in the mornings I love making a hearty breakfast occasionally - especially oatmeal when the weather is cool - but eggs of any kind, any time. Okay. Sometimes muffins or some kind of sweet bread. But most often, eggs. They are a super food for sure, loaded with nutrition.

I really enjoy this hash because it's very satisfying and filling and super delicious and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. I really love the spice of the Cajun fried turkey, but I've used regular deli turkey, and ham also works really well here. You can also switch up the cheese to your favorite of course.

A very tasty start to the day, I hope you give it a try sometime!

What you'll need: A bit of cooking oil, a couple or three eggs, a small potato, a slice of deli turkey breast, or you can sub in any shredded leftover turkey you have, seasonings and just a tad bit of shredded cheese, if ya like.

First, rinse and scrub the potato under some running water. Then dice it up - no need to peel. You can use whatever kind of potato you like - russets are great, as are red potatoes. Did you know that a lot of the vitamin goodness and fiber is in the peel? I still can't quite convince The Cajun of this fact. He won't eat the peel, unless it's diced up small like this.

Next, chop up that turkey breast. If you don't have that this works well with ham as well, or any leftover meat you have.

Cook the potatoes in a hot skillet over medium high heat with a bit of oil until the potatoes are tender and begin to brown. Toss in the turkey, add some salt and pepper, and stir that around to warm the turkey.

Beat the eggs together well. I used 3 eggs here. Pour those into the hot skillet with the potatoes. You'll want to turn the heat down a bit - to just under medium should do it. Let the eggs just begin to set slightly.

You don't really want to scramble the eggs, but instead sort of fold them in a bit all around, and continue folding.

Slide them out onto a plate, add cheese if you like, or not, a slice of buttered toast, and maybe some bacon - eat!

If you're in the mood for fried eggs instead, cook your potatoes alone or with the turkey, and kind of mush then down into the pan until they stick together and get real brown on the bottom. Slide out onto a plate and top with a fried egg. Yum!
