20 Ways with Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey

20 Ways with Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey // SavvyEat.com

Happy day-after Thanksgiving everyone! I hope all my American readers had a great holiday (and that all the international Savvy Eaters had a great regular Thursday, as well). If you hosted, I’m guessing you have a ton of leftover turkey on your hands.  Or maybe your host sent you home with a big container of leftovers. Either way, you’re surely in need of some creative ways to use your leftovers, right?

Of course, I recommend freezing turkey so you aren’t on poultry-overload for the next week. Regardless of whether you’ll be working with fresh or frozen Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, here’s 20 ways you can put them to good use. My personal favorite is the breakfast casserole, but I can’t wait to try the enchilada melt, turkey and cranberry sauce salad and the breakfast pizza!
