Turkey/Chicken Hash

Do do still have chopped turkey in the freezer from Thanksgiving or Christmas?  I do.  I love a good Turkey/Chicken Hash.  It's perfect for breakfast/brunch, lunch or supper/dinner.  Great for a church supper or yes funeral food.  Serve it over toast, biscuits or corn cakes.

This is one of those great make-a-head meals.
