The reason that one pot meals have become such a trend in recent years is because people are incredibly busy these days between work, school, leisure, and social lives. Throwing all of your ingredients in the same pot doesn’t have to be boring, though.
Aside from limiting the amount of dishes you have to scrub, one pot meals are a fantastic vessel for complex combinations of flavors, textures, and aromatics whose whole is far more satisfying than just the sum of its parts.
I was looking around in my kitchen earlier this week and I wanted to find a way to incorporate some ingredients that were getting ready to expire, so I was inspired to make a hash.
The leftovers from this hash lasted less than a day in my household, so I consider that evidence indicative of its overall success and deliciousness.
I implore you to go through your cabinets, your pantry, your fridge, and your freezer and follow along below to create your own Phenomenally Simple and Delicious Turkey Hash Recipe.

- In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground turkey until thoroughly browned. Remove from skillet and set side of a plate lined with paper towels.
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In the same skillet, turn the heat down to medium and add 4 slices of bacon and cook until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside on some paper towels to drain.
- Add the sliced potatoes into the bacon fat in the skillet and pan fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove the potatoes from the skillet and set aside on some paper towels to drain.
- Add butter and olive oil to the skillet and add in the bell pepper and sliced carrot. Sautee the bell pepper and sliced carrot until nearly cooked through and push to one side of the skillet.
- Turn the heat down to medium-low and add shallot and garlic cloves to the empty side of the skillet and cook until translucent.
- Add peas, cooked ground turkey, salt, pepper, and spices and mix everything in the skillet together until well-combined and heated through.
- Make several shallow crevices in the mixture of ingredients in the skillet and place potato slices there.
- Crumble the bacon over the top of the skillet and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
- Place the entire cast iron skillet in the pre-heated oven for 10-20 minutes, or until potatoes are crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
