Do you have leftover Thanksgiving turkey and maybe a little gravy?  Here’s an idea for a turkey hash.  Serve it with a green salad and warm French bread for an informal brunch or supper.

Turkey-Pecan Hash

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 cup stale coarse bread crumbs
2-3 cups diced cooked turkey meat
1/2 cup leftover turkey gravy (or more, if needed)
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste, depending on the saltiness of the gravy)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half, at room temperature (or more, if needed)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat leaf parsley

1.  Melt butter in large heavy skillet over medium heat.  When foam subsides, add onion and celery; reduce heat to low.  Saute, stirring frequently, until vegetables are soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.  Stir in curry powder and paprika until blended; saute 1 minute.  Stir in bread crumbs; increase heat to medium.  Saute, stirring, until bread begins to brown slightly, about 5 minutes.

2.  Stir turkey, gravy, salt, and pepper into mixture in skillet.  Reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook, covered, until flavors are blended, about 10 minutes.

3.  Stir pecans, cream, and parsley into turkey mixture; increase heat to medium.  Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 4 or 5 minutes.  Taste for seasonings.  Spoon hash into warmed serving dish and serve immediately.  Makes 4 servings.
