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.
