Certainly can’t blame you if you want to double down on Thanksgiving flavor the day after by creating the most epic leftover turkey sandwich the world has ever seen. But, if you’re looking for a little something different, we’ve got a number of recipes that truly transform your Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. Pizza, pasta, egg rolls and brunch – yep, you’re gonna want to plan for extra turkey.
Grab your mismatched Tupperware and a fork! One of the best parts about pulling off the big meal is all the food that is left behind long after your guests have loosened their belts. This holiday season, make the most of your leftover turkey, and store those leftovers safely for optimal freshness. Discard any uneaten food after being left out for more than two hours. You can seal any salvageable leftovers in storage containers for up to four days in the refrigerator – or freeze your turkey to use over the next few weeks. No matter how you celebrate or the contents of your (overflowing) dinner plate, leftovers are the real winners of Thanksgiving. Or shall we say the person who gets to take them home!
