We love non-recipe recipe’s over here, and this is the perfect one. While this Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash certainly is a recipe, it leaves a lot of room for creativity based off of what you served at your Thanksgiving meal. Using both sweet and savory elements, this hash uses brussels sprouts, potatoes, turkey and cranberry sauce to make the ultimate post holiday meal. Plus, we include some other options to use, just in case you don’t have all the leftovers you need to make it!

Top it with a fried egg, or eat it as is. Either way, it’ll be delicious and dare we say it, maybe even better than the actual Thanksgiving dinner?

Thanksgiving breakfast ideas for leftovers

Ingredients for Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash 

Here is what we included in our leftover hash. We went ahead and offered alternatives for each ingredient, just in case you don’t have all of the suggested ingredients.

  • Bacon: Start with fresh bacon here! 
  • Onion: Also, fresh. Using some fresh elements gives this a “new” feel to the hash.
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts: If you didn’t have roasted brussels, either use fresh (they’ll cook at the same time) or substitute in another hearty vegetable. Or alternatively you could use something like leftover green beans, though you’d want to wait to add those until the end.
  • Roasted Potatoes or Sweet Potatoes: If you didn’t have these, go ahead and use fresh potatoes. You must par-boil them first. To do so, boil them until they are just barely tender. Then, finishing cooking them for a few more minutes in the actual skillet with the other leftovers.
  • Leftover Turkey Meat: If there is one thing you likely have leftovers of, it’s this! If you didn’t you could substitute in cooked chicken.
  • Cranberry Sauce: This sweetness really brings the dish all together! If you didn’t have any leftover cranberry sauce, use a fresh apple. Add it to the skillet along with the brussels sprouts so it can cook all the way through.
  • Salt and Pepper: Depending on how well seasoned your original food is will dictate how much seasoning you may need to add. Don’t add any until the end.
