I don’t know what the technical definition of “Hash” is, but today’s SAT prep defines it like this:
Turkey Hash : Christmas CaveGirl :: Breadsticks at the Olive Garden : Carb Addict. (My name is Cave Girl, and I’m a Holiday-aholic.)
Christmas CaveGirl watched A Christmas Story back-to-back EIGHT times. She watched It’s A Wonderful Life twice in a row – first, remastered color version; then traditional black & white. She will ONLY watch the cartoon Grinch. Christmas CaveGirl made almond flour cookies and thick-cut bacon for Santa and answered the phone “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?” for three weeks prior to 12/25. She made her CaveHusband hang lights in October. She drove 1 hour each way to the Spruce Goose Farm to pick out five fresh wreaths and a live Canadian Spruce (with its whimsical needles and minty-evergreen fragrance), covered it with lights, and promptly left for a 2-week visit with family. Why? Because the holidays. are. fun.
So I’m not ready to let go yet. I have to slowly wean myself off the Holiday Cheer from now until Groundhog Day. I’ll incorporate turkey into nearly every meal until I start to gobble in my sleep.
So here’s an easy way to incorporate leftover Holiday Turkey into a sweet, comforting, single-serving breakfast (because all the Scrooges around here are right back to their pre-holiday routines like NOTHING EVER HAPPENED).
1 cup turkey, shredded
1/4 cup apple, chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 Tbs. coconut oil
Combine all in a skillet on med-high and mix. Allow mixture to brown.
If you love Breakfast as much as you love Holidays, you may want to poach an egg to plop on top.
Somebody save me from myself.
Um, yes on all counts. Glad someone else is so particular about which versions of the proper Christmas movies one can watch. Also, I’m making your hash tomorrow, but with pork shoulder. Boom.
