It’s that time of year again: fridges are going to be bursting at the seams with leftovers from holiday meals. I don’t like anything as delicious as a well-made turkey to go to waste, so I pulled together these easy leftover turkey recipes to choose from. Happy cooking this holiday season!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a fan of overestimating how much turkey we are going to need, just to make sure there are leftovers for days!
In fact, I backed out of a very sweet holiday invite this year because, well, there are no leftovers when you go eat at someone else’s house.
So we’re going to make a big bird, eat our fill, and then dive in and use some of that leftover turkey meat to make some of these meals.
My kids have already told me which ones they want out of this list of Easy Leftover Turkey Recipes.
