2large Garlic Cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
½cupRed Pepper, finely chopped
3cupscold cooked Turkey, chopped
½teaspoonBlack Pepper, ground
2/3cupGravy or Heavy Whipping Cream
Garnish: chopped Italian Parsley
Optional: batch of Roasted Garlic Buttermilk Smashed Potatoes
In a large, heavy skillet (dry) over medium-high heat, place sliced almonds. Stir constantly (to avoid burning) until the almonds begin to turn light golden brown; 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and red pepper to the skillet and sauté, stirring constantly until the onions begin to become translucent.
Add the turkey, dressing, salt and pepper; stir to mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through; about 5 minutes.
Add the gravy/cream and almonds to the skillet. Cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently, scrapping the bottom of the skillet to incorporate the browned bits into the mixture. Allow mixture to sit a few minutes in between stirring to develop a light golden crust. Hash should still be moist when done; about 5-10 minutes.
Garnish with chopped Italian parsley and serve immediately. If desired serve turkey holiday hash over a heaping serving of Roasted Garlic Buttermilk Smashed Potatoes.
