One of my favorite things about a nice big holiday meal is the leftovers. I love taking little bits of this and that and creating either a buffet plate, a hugely messy sandwich, or a one-skillet meal from what’s there.
This year, since we’ve been experimenting with keto – I thought I’d whip up a low carb version of one of my very favorite dishes — hash. Seriously, I could eat hash every day (and have – that was my #1 bachelorette food).

Keto Holiday Leftovers Hash
Leftover holiday meat (I used 2 ounces turkey in mine, and 3 ounces turkey in my DH’s)
1 cup steamed cauliflower bits (make these about half-inch size)
1/2 cup leftover broiled green beans
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 – 2 slices leftover bacon per person
1 – 2 eggs per person
2 Tbsp. fat of choice (I used bacon drippings)
Palm full chopped fresh rosemary + sage
Salt & pepper
Crushed red pepper flakes
First, get your cauliflower going. You want to crumble about half a head cauliflower into roughly half-inch sized pieces. These are going to serve as your “potatoes” so you want a little heft to them (but not so much it’s like chawing down on a hunk of naked cauliflower).
Place in a pot, put an inch or so water in, turn the burner to high, and add a few liberal pinches salt. Boil, covered, 5 – 8 minutes or until soft. Drain.
Heat the fat of choice in your largest pan. Add the cauliflower. Chop the green beans roughly and add. Hit with a big pinch salt and a few grinds pepper.
While the veggies are cooking, start your eggs in a small pan on low heat. Add the butter, wait until it melts, then gently cook your eggs until your desired yolks have been met (I like over medium). Remove to a plate when done (save the butter!).
When the eggs are done, add your meat (turkey) to the pan and sautee until warmed and maybe even crispy.
Mince the herbs and add to the veggie skillet. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
Add half the veggies + your portion of meat + your eggs to a bowl and top with red pepper flakes. Repeat for the other bowl.
