If you've got ham, you can make this Thanksgiving leftover breakfast hash the day after.
Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash Meal Prep Idea
Thanksgiving leftovers breakfast hash is a warm and hearty breakfast. You just need ham for this delicious recipe; no need to eat ham sandwiches for days. (Unless, of course, you want to.) Add in some sweet potatoes and stuffing, and an egg? It's just so good.
Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash Ingredients:
- Sweet potatoes
How to Make Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash
Oh, this could not be simpler. Are you ready?
Take your turkey, leftover sweet potatoes, and stuffing. Put them together in a small casserole dish or a loaf pan. Try to get them to layer in the dish. Play with the order a bit. We have made this two different ways. First, layer with sweet potatoes on the bottom. But the second time, we put the stuffing on the bottom. Either way, it's good. But the stuffing gives it a little bit more of a firm base. However, it's a casserole; it's going to be a little wobbly on the serving spoon.
Admittedly, the egg is a bit of a wild card here. Once you have layered the casserole ingredients, crack one egg after another over the top of the casserole. But in different locations. The whites will sink into the casserole a bit. And the egg yolk will cook slowly.
Tips for Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash
If you want a gooier egg, leave off the egg. Cook the casserole for ten minutes. Then, remove it from the oven and crack the eggs over the top, strategically. Finally, return it to the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
Make this casserole as big or as small as you need to. For example, it would work baked single-serving style, in a ramekin.
How to Store and Reheat Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Hash
Leftovers should be cooled down as quickly as possible. Pack them into several shallow Foodsaver® meal prep containers rather than one large one, and make sure you don't stack the containers in the refrigerator (this can trap the heat). To help extend the life of these leftovers, use the Foodsaver® Handheld Vacuum or larger unit with handheld to get all the air out of the containers.
It's possible to freeze this combination, but we suggest leaving off the eggs if you think you want to just freeze this right off the bat. First, defrost the casserole either in the microwave or overnight in the refrigerator. Then add the eggs, right over the top, before baking. One at a time, crack them over the top.
Reheating this dish is quick and easy. Just bake it, covered, at 350 degrees. The egg might get tough, since it was already cooked. But you can always solve that problem. Crack a new one over the top!
Not only does the egg add moisture and flavor, but protein, too. Bonus!
