Turkey & Potato Skillet Dinner

It’s hard coming up with new ways to cook ground turkey.

There’s only so much you can do. Burgers, meatballs, spaghetti…after a while, it all starts to bleed together.

I really racked my brain this past weekend trying to figure out what to do with my last pound of ground turkey. As it defrosted in my fridge, I went through all of the recipes I could think of to try and find a dinner that was suitable and unique.

I finally turned to the internet for help and was greeted with this recipe. It’s brilliant, simple and absolutely delectable.

It’s like a hash, but more saucy. You could call it hash and gravy, I suppose. Gravy hash. Something like that.

I packed this up for my husband’s lunches last week and he seemed to enjoy it. The few bites I had of the hash were really delicious.
