Tips for using leftover Thanksgiving turkey
- Be sure to carve the remaining turkey before storing it. You may not have room in the fridge for a whole turkey, especially with the other leftovers. So carve the turkey before you store it. It’s also easier to carve at room temperature than after refrigerating.
- Sprinkle on fresh herbs to liven up your bird. Sprinkle the tops of casseroles, pasta, and soups with turkey friendly herbs like sage or fresh parsley.
- Don’t keep leftover turkey meat longer than 4 days in the fridge. You can always freeze leftovers, just in case you get turkey overload!
- Keep things festive with holiday garnishes. Tis the season for cranberry, walnuts, and all those classic winter garnishes. Top your turkey salads with walnuts, and use up that cranberry sauce in turkey sandwiches. Whatever sides, sauces, and toppings you use for your Thanksgiving, use them for the leftovers too!
