Pyttipanna is a great way to use leftover turkey, ham or chicken. In Sweden this is a typical everyday meal, simple and tasty. Sometimes it's also served with a raw egg yolk on top.

In Norway we call this Swedish hash pyttipanne and in Sweden it's sometimes pytt i panna. However you say it... however you make it... it's super delish!

Serves 4

You will need:
1 large beet
2 large potatoes
1 small red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2-3 cups chopped ham, turkey or chicken
1/2 cup shredded kale
salt and pepper
pinch of dried thyme
4 fried eggs, for serving

  1. Peel beet and potatoes and cut them into small cubes.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan and add the beets, they take the longest to cook.
  3. Cook them for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  4. Add potatoes and onion and cook until the potatoes are done.
  5. Add your meat and kale and cook until everything is warm.
  6. Season with salt, pepper and thyme.
  7. Serve with a fried egg on top.

TIP:

You can use whatever meat or leftovers you have on hand!
