I might be Jew-ish, but I LOVE Christmas. The songs, spending time with my family, overeating and celebrating this festival that isn’t even part of my religion. But who cares it makes me happy and I look forward to this time of year from the moment its over.

So as the glorious Christmas day comes to a close, and you look at your leftovers don’t throw them away. Yes you can make a turkey sandwich, yes you can throw the leftover turkey into a pie or curry, here I offer you a quick, but delicious turkey apple hash that will allow you to use the last of your Christmas meal and if you want finish it with a fried egg.

I first experienced a similar dish in Boston, and this had to be one of the best Brunches I have ever consumed. The highlight of the dish had to be the gravy that smothered the dish, I am a firm believer that a good gravy can make the dish.

So whip out that frying pan, chop up your leftovers and throw in a knob of butter because this will have to become your favourite Christmas dinner leftover dish.


  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Butter  – or dairy free butter
  • 2 slices of Turkey, chopped
  • 2 Sausages,  chopped
  • 3 Carrots slices, chopped
  • 4 Potatoes, diced
  • 4 brussel sprouts, halved
  • 1 slice of stuffing, diced
  • 4 root veg diced,
  • 3 sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple – crispy sweet variety thinly diced, cored remove
  • 2 eggs
  • Leftover gravy


  • Place a large frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the olive oil and butter and the rest of the ingredients except the gravy and eggs.
  • Now add the rest of your leftovers and allow to crispen up. You may need to add some more olive oil and butter.
  • Add the apple
  • Stir well. Fry off for about ten minutes, add some salt and pepper. Don’t move the food too much so that it can crispen up on the edges.
  • Now microwave your gravy or re heat over the hob.
  • When ready remove from the pan and clean it.
  • Fry your eggs in the same pan to your taste and place on top.
  • Finish off with your gravy.
  • Eat immediately.
