Leftover Turkey Recipe Roundup

This time of year we all seem to get more than our share of turkey.  Every time I turn around somebody is inviting us over for dinner and turkey is the main course. I love it, but after a while it gets to be too much. My teens could eat it every day if we let them. Maybe I should take that as a compliment? Compared to many meats, turkey is not very expensive, it is actually affordable. We cook up a turkey, feed the 5 of us, sometimes seven. Then the next day have sandwiches and enough leftovers to make soup or what have you.

I have to admit, my creativity with leftovers is not all that great. I can do soup or a casserole but not much more.

So I have reached out to other bloggers and had them share with me what they do with their leftovers.

With all these fabulous leftover turkey recipes I am actually getting excited about Turkey. Yum!

Hopefully you found one you would like to try. Then maybe all that turkey will will be serving will have some variety and your family will be asking for more. I know mine will.

What do you usually do with Turkey leftovers?


  1. My favorite thing to do with turkey bones is make a rich stock and then use it for creamy cheesy potato soup.

    I like the look of the turkey mac & cheese – might have to remember that for the next time we have turkey. Thanks for the recipe.

    I do a lot of Japanese cooking and a few years ago discovered just how delicious curry is when I make it with leftover turkey. It's become our Black Friday dinner.

    My son makes a fabulous turkey soup on Boxing Day, full of flavour and delicious. I also like making a stir fry with left over turkey, I also freeze some of the meat in portions for later meals.
