Low-Carb Turkey Hash

What’s the one question we all ask ourselves the day after Thanksgiving? What to do with those turkey leftovers! Throughout Thanksgiving weekend every time I open the fridge, I ponder how to salvage the remains of our feast. My Low-Carb Turkey Hash is the answer to that perennial Thanksgiving question, what to do with leftover turkey?!

Easy Low-Carb Turkey Hash Recipe

Low-Carb Turkey Hash is made with 3 main ingredients. Onion, squash, and turkey form this incredible low-carb comfort food. These leftovers will warm your belly and empty your refrigerator the day after Thanksgiving. I’ve been gluten-free since I was diagnosed with celiac in 1998, so this, like all of my recipes, is a gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb turkey hash!

Thanksgiving Leftovers

I often have leftover squash or pumpkin after Thanksgiving. That’s because I usually make extra for my beloved Vegan Pumpkin Pie. If you want to learn how to cook pumpkin from scratch instead of using the stuff from the can, check out my How to Roast Pumpkin post.

You may want to try throwing some leftover greens such as Brussel sprouts, kale, or spinach in this hash. The sky’s the limit when it comes to making dishes out of Thanksgiving leftovers. This is a basic recipe template for you. Feel free to add herbs and spices and toss in everything but the kitchen sink. We love this topped with leftover Cranberry Cherry Sauce.

The trick with this turkey hash is to let the squash (or pumpkin) get nice and soft. You can also try using pre-cooked squash leftovers as mentioned above. This will reduce your cooking time. My husband is not a fan of leftovers and he devoured this when I served it to him.
