I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!  I know I don’t usually post recipes on Fridays, but this is the day after Thanksgiving and it would be cruel not to give you at least one recipe for that mound of turkey currently in your refrigerator.  Here are two ideas – Turkey Hash (which I published right after I started this blog), and today’s recipe:  Turkey Pot Pie.

Hash     –     The evolution of a recipe

You might ask yourself:  “why hash?” and “what’s hash anyway?”

Starting with the second question…Hash, according to Wikipedia is “a coarse mixture of ingredients.”  Food wise hash mostly commonly includes diced or shredded potatoes, some kind of meat, and vegetables (even just an onion will suffice) that are sauteed until slightly browned or cooked until crispy or even fried, according to your preferences.  Any vegetables, spices, or meats are acceptable in hash.

Why hash?  I’ll try to make this a not too long story…I was in the market and saw a lovely bone-in half turkey breast.

I’ve never cooked one, but hey…why not?  Shorten the story to:  it didn’t turn out too well and now I have lots of turkey meat.  Sandwiches are OUT as I have yet to find a wheat-free bread I like.  What to do with leftover turkey?  Hash.

Now, what to put in my hash with the turkey.  Definitely potatoes and onions, but what else.

Fast forward to walking my dog – we walk past my local corner fruit and vegetable stand.  Spinach and Mushrooms!

Hmmm, needs a salty element.  I bought bacon to experiment with New England Clam Chowder.  Perfect!  and that’s how a recipe happens in my kitchen.

Hope you love it!
