How long does leftover turkey last?

Leftover turkey is generally good for 3 to 4 days when stored in the refrigerator.

You can freeze it as well and it will last for 3 to 4 months.  I love freezing it and then defrosting some when I’m ready to make a recipe for leftover turkey meat. 

It’s so convenient and saves a ton of time in the kitchen too. Just make sure to freeze the turkey inside an airtight freezer container or bag.

    So many great ideas! I think we’ll try the Turkey pot pie and use the leftover rolls for slider burgers.

  36. Susan says:

    Great ideas! Can hardly wait to try them!

  37. Carla says:

    I like to spread leftover dressing and turkey in a dish, top with the remaining mashed potatoes, add a drained leftover green vegetable and top with gravy, cover and heat till bubbly around edges. Leftover sweet potatoes are always a pie or bread ingredient.

  38. Deb says:

    I like using the leftover turkey for sandwiches, soup, on bread with gravy and in turkey hashbrown casserole.

  84. Kristin Burbano says:

    Wow you guys are the queens of making left over recipes. With my turkey, we do sandwiches. With the ham, I make a similar ham and bean soup that we call Cajun dinner. It’s just the beans being cooked for a few hours with the ham bone, water and green onions. After about 3- 3 1/2 hours, I’ll add pieces of ham and serve over rice. But the sliders are such a good and yummy idea! So many wonderful recipes to try!

  98. sharon Sivori says:

    I made turkey sliders and ham sliders even though I did not have a lot of ham left. They were terrific, nothing like little bites to fill the little spaces still open!! Not too much, just enough!

  99. Sandra Petty says:

    My favorite way to use leftover turkey is to make tamales out of it. It has been a family tradition my whole life. Most of us like the tamales better than the original turkey meal.

  100. Kristin Threlkeld says:

    It’s hard to beat a cold turkey sandwich!

  101. Diane Williams says:

    I usually am not creative enough to come up with ways to use my leftovers. My mom usually make turkey noodle soup but I just eat the leftovers the way they are made.

  102. Jamie C says:

    I like to layer all my leftovers together in a lasagna style casserole and rebake it and serve it all in one but still different

  103. Beth says:

    With the leftover turkey I make a turkey pot pie.

  104. Allison Hilliard says:

    Already had sliders with turkey leftovers. Going to make soup with the rest.

  105. Cheryl says:

    My favorite way to use leftover turkey is soup. I put the carcass in my crockpot with a quart of stock plus water to cover and cook it all night. Next day I strain out all the bones and start adding. In goes leftover turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, sweet potatoes – it all goes in. I let it cook on low, taste/adjust seasonings, add noodles, macaroni shells or rice and we have a pot of soup!

  106. Terrilynn Board says:

    I mix turkey, stuffing, and gravy together and put over mashed potatoes

  110. Becky Cunningham says:

    I wish that I could say that I tried some of these. However, because of using your other recipes for ham and turkey, there were no left overs to use, Kind of disappointed as I always look forward to that ham or turkey sandwich the next day. Thanks, Carrie and team for making this a very easy holiday for me this year.

  111. Rachel says:

    I’ve made at least half of these. Love them all

  112. Lisa says:

    This year with my leftovers I tried Turkey cups

    and cold Turkey sandwiches of course

  114. Carol says:

    I would love to make the Mashed Potato Waffles, they sound so good!!!

  115. Bette says:

    I enjoy leftovers. Turkey sandwiches, ham cheese scramble.

  116. Diane “Dee” M Zimmermann says:

    My favorite leftover Turkey is what you call Tea Sandwiches. We have full turkey and cranberry with mayonnaise on a good tasting bread. I like sour dough wheat. Nice crusty edges and soft inside.

  117. Kara Marks says:

    I usually like heating whole plates of leftovers and I also have a special turkey lasagna that’s really good. This year we’re just having roast though, since it’s just my son and me and I’m disabled with MS, so cooking a huge meal really wears me out. I’m looking forward to the roast leftovers though. And your recipes sound great!

  118. Carole says:

    I like to take left over turkey and make what I call Turkey Joes . I chop some celery and onion , saute in butter , in a sauce-pan . Once they are soft , I add a good amount of chopped , cooked turkey meat , 1 tsp prepared yellow mustard , and enough ketchup to make it moist . Let it gently simmer to meld flavors. Serve on a buttered bun . It may sound strange , but give it a try . 🙂

  119. Jackie says:

    We don’t usually have a lot of leftovers because people take them home with them. Since we’re not very creative, what we do have ends up in sandwiches and soup.

  120. Sara Campbell says:

    Im looking forward to stuffing leftovers… the recipe for stuffing waffles sounds absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try it!

  121. Heather says:

    I usually do the turkey sandwich thing using the stuffing too. I think I might try the crock pot shepherd’s pie this year! Using the leftovers sounds like a fun twist!

  122. Rebecca says:

    Love the recipes! One of the first leftovers I make is turkey noodle soup with mashed potatoes dumpings or stuffing balls depends on what I have more leftovers from.

  123. Sheryle says:

    I think the potato pancakes and stuffing waffles would taste amazing the next day.

  124. Jean Allen says:

    I certainly will be making the creamy turkey soup because I’ve been sick for over a week and hot soup will help my throat feel better.

  125. Laura Brock says:

    My favorite way to use Thanksgiving leftovers is to make turkey or chicken veggie soup and ham/egg salad sandwiches.

  126. Tina Robinson says:

    I usually just warm up leftovers but now I will try the fried potato cakes, Turkey pot pie and Turkey and ham sliders!! Thank you for the ideas!

  127. Tam Glo says:

    Turkey Tetrazzini hands down!

  128. Sandy Yannarella says:

    My all time favorite is a turkey club made with leftover turkey. I make a double decker with bacon , lettuce , tomato , turkey ( of course) and mayo. Hubby has his on white toast and I, usually make mine on whole grain toast. Leftover mashed potatoes will be used the next morning as tater cakes. Turkey noodle soup over the weekend. I also make stuffing sandwiches. Stuffing, mayo , cranberry sauce on white bread. I noticed that Turkey quesadillas are on the list of recipes so that will, definitely, be another yummy way to use up leftovers ?

  129. Megan Kielb says:

    We usually make a Thanksgiving sandwich with all the fixings. But I’m looking to make your recipe for mashed potato fritters.

  130. Laura Parker says:

    Our best use of leftovers is to just simply make another plate of our favorites!!!!

  131. Michelle Turner says:

    I love to have left over turkey. 1st we have left over turkey sandwiches on very soft bread then it’s Turkey pot pie with the rest of it.

  132. KC says:

    I make stuffing patties to freeze and then I can take them out individually. I roll stuffing into balls and flatten into patties, coat in buttered bread crumbs. Brown in skillet, cool and freeze in plastic bags. Can be reheated in oven, skillet or microwave.

  133. Leslie says:

    I usually make turkey and noodles, turkey pot pie with side mashed potatoes, or shepherd’s pie using most of the leftovers. Just depends what is leftover and how much.

  134. Diane says:

    I use leftover turkey in salads, sometimes in soup (turkey noodle soup) or in a sandwich.

  135. Angie McAlpin says:

    I look forward to using left over turkey for some really good sandwiches

  136. Sandra Arens says:

    I plan on making stuffing waffles. They look wonderfully delicious! But, then again all the recipes look great!

  137. Sharon Steinle says:

    I love Turkey left overs. I like to just eat it cold or I make turkey Pot Pie. If I have enough sometimes I will freeze for a future meal.

  138. Neil Cervenan says:

    If there are any mashed potatoes left over, we will try the waffles or cakes recipes.

  139. Diane says:

    With 19 people there aren’t usually any leftovers. However I would like to try the potato cakes if there were potatoes left over

  140. Kara says:

    They all look so good but I think I will be doing ham sliders and maybe ham and corn chowder.

  141. Jeanne Pantano says:

    Happy Thanksgiving I’m going to make turkey pot pie with stuffing crust

  142. Carol Mast-briggs says:

    my favorite part of thanksgiving is the pumpkin pie..and there is never any we usually have lots of turkey left over and besides really big sandwiches my families favorite is green chilie burritos made from the turkey.

  143. Maria says:

    With my leftover turkey, we will make turkey tetrazzini with it

  144. Carrie Barnard says:

    so glad you like them!

  145. Joelle says:

    My favorite ways to use leftover Turkey is white chili, Turkey noodle soup, or enchiladas. The mashed potatoes are for potato patties or Shepherd’s Pie. The green beans & corn are turned into soup. The week after Thanksgiving is my easiest week for cooking! Happy Thanksgiving!

  146. Ashley P says:

    My mom always used to make pot pie with our leftovers. I want to try making mashed potato pancakes this year!
