Every once in a while, we throw out the healthy food aspect and just go for something tasty and, most importantly, quick and easy to prepare. This ground turkey hash indeed fell into both of those categories. This meal was on the table in less than 15 minutes.
I can’t remember when was the last time that I had hash browns. All I know was that it was so long ago that I didn’t even bother checking the freezer before going to the grocery store. So naturally, when we got home from the grocery store, we had half a bag in the freezer!
Ground Turkey Hash – Healthy or Not?
This meal is high in protein and Vitamin C while coming in with very low sodium. So I guess despite the frozen hash browns, there’s still some healthy goodness in this dish.
So now, what else can I use these hash browns with? Next time, I think we’ll go with a serving or two of vegetables. Certainly, diced tomatoes or spinach would have worked nicely here.
