Serving Thankgiving Turkey Leftovers

Here are six fast, simple and delicious suggestions for creative recycling of extra turkey into tasty dishes, plus some tips for handling and re-heating leftover turkey.

5. Turkey and Spinach Tetrazzini

Leftovers. . . Anytime

Sometime you see a great-tasting recipe using leftover turkey and you don't have any on hand. Here is an easy solution -- simply purchase cooked turkey breast roast at the deli counter. Or, buy a turkey breast or thigh, poach or bake it and you have cooked turkey, ready to use in your delicious leftover turkey recipe.

Because turkey is so nutritious and versatile, it is a good choice all year round. No need to wait for Chirstmas, Easter or Thanksgiving to have leftovers to make into tasty recipes.

Handling Leftovers Wisely

Since cooked meat or poultry is susceptible to bacterial growth, use it as soon as possible. When the turkey dinner is over, remove the meat from the bones, take out the stuffing and refrigerate or freeze as soon as possible.

For the best possible quality, wrap the turkey well in small packages or store in shallow plastic containers. Even if turkey is still warm, refrigerate or freeze immediately. Store any leftover gravy in a covered container and refrigerate or freeze.

Corn Cob

Use refrigerated cooked turkey within three to four days. Freeze turkey covered in broth in a covered container. Use within six months. Or, freeze turkey slices or pieces in air-tight packages and use within four months.

Label the packages with the date they were frozen. The turkey will be perfectly safe if frozen for a longer time, but the texture and flavour will begin to deteriorate.

Re-Heating Leftover Turkey

To add a fresh flavour to re-heated turkey, layer slices of turkey with washed lettuce or cabbage leaves. Cover and heat in the oven or microwave.
