  • frying pan or skillet


  • 1 pound ground turkey preferably organic or pasture-raised
  • 2 apples cored and chopped
  • 1 large onion or 2 small, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger root freshly grated
  • 10 leaves fresh sage sliced thinly, or 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or coconut oil


  • Heat large cast iron skillet over high heat. When hot, add 2 tablespoons fat, then meat, then 1 teaspoon sea salt sprinkled on top.
  • (If using dried sage, add it now.) Cook meat, breaking it up in the pan until no pink remains, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove meat to a bowl, and set aside.
  • Add 1-1/2 tablespoons fat to hot pan, keeping heat on high. Add onions and remaining 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Sauté about 10 minutes until softened and beginning to brown in places. (Reduce heat to medium-high if pan is too hot and onions are darkening too fast.)
  • Add apples and remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter. Sauté 10 minutes more.
  • Return meat to pan. Add fresh ginger. Cook 2 more minutes to heat through.
  • Remove from heat. Add fresh sage. Serve.


Here's the cast iron skillet I recommend. It's a great price for a great size and everyday use.

Use Celtic Sea Salt (here) or Redmond Real Salt (here). Here's why.

Leftover roast turkey? Sure, you can do that...! That's the true spirit and origin of hash recipes:

Simply skip Instruction Steps 1 and 2 in the recipe above. Have ready 2 cups (or more) chopped leftover roast turkey, and start with Step 3 above. When it's time to add in the cooked turkey, Step 5, just add your chopped leftover turkey and one additional tablespoon fat (bacon fat or butter, for example), and proceed with recipe.
