Friday, November 19, 2021
Leftover Turkey can be used in just about all your favorite recipes, but sometimes we just can't figure out what to do with all of it so here are some great suggestions below for repurposing leftover holiday turkey.

We all love leftover turkey in a sandwich with maybe some cranberry sauce, delicious grain bread, or just plain classic mayonnaise with white bread, easy quick and the usual but that can get quite boring after the first two days.

First of all, if you have an overabundance of leftover turkey, separate the meat, add the white and dark into separate packages and yes you can refreeze it and use it in any of the recipes below for up to 2 months.

Seriously all these recipes from Mexican, Italian and American ideas to use up that leftover turkey area are all delicious.

Take a quick look at the recipes and pick out the one you like the best that suits your family taste buds.

The best part is you can use leftover chicken or other meats you may have in any of these recipes also, just they are all very versatile, just take a look at the suggestions below also within this collection.

We love using leftover turkey or chicken plain scallopini (if there are any) for Turkey Pot Pie or Hot Covered Turkey Sandwiches, those are just a few in the roundup below we love to make.
