Tired of turkey sandwiches from that leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Turn it into breakfast instead with this Mexican Turkey Breakfast Pizza!

This post has been created in partnership with Old El Paso.

I like turkey on Thanksgiving, but I have to say, I like the turkey leftovers even better. In fact, my Thanksgiving plate is usually loaded up with sides, and a little tiny bit of turkey that is often hidden under a pile of mashed potatoes or festive green beans.

I think it’s just that I prefer my turkey as something other than just a slice of turkey. Like as a sandwich. Or soup. Or wrapped up in crescent rolls.

This year, I’m looking forward to something different, too. Turkey for breakfast.

When my friends at Old El Paso approached me about making a Thanksgiving leftover recipe, I immediatly jumped at the chance to try a Mexican-inspired breakfast pizza. Complete with eggs, salsa, turkey, green chiles, taco seasoned hash browns and more.

This baby is loaded.

I know that we are all usually saying that we never want to eat again late on Thanksgiving night, but believe me, you’ll want to eat again if you are eating this in the morning!!

It’s super easy to make, too. You’ll start with 1 pound of pizza dough. I make mine from scratch, but any that you love will do here. Roll it out. Then top it. First with salsa, then scrambled eggs, leftover turkey and Old El Paso Diced Green Chiles. Toss the frozen hash browns with the taco seasoning (no need to thaw the hash browns), and then sprinkle them over the top. Sprinkle the top of the pizza with cheese (not pictured – I somehow missed that!!) and then bake it until the dough is browned and cheese is bubbly.

You can serve this up for breakfast, or serve it for dinner the day after Thanksgiving. You’ll be glad you saved some of your leftovers for this!

  1. I love this idea of putting scrambled eggs on pizza! We sometimes make breakfast pizza, but usually we crack eggs over the dough and they cook as the pizza bakes. This would be a fun new twist to try! And totally a great way to use up that leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

  2. Oh gosh, I really want to make this. 🙂
