Creative Meal Ideas for Turkey Leftovers

 

Storing Turkey Safely
Leftovers are a delicious bonus from big holiday meals, but only when they are safely tucked away. Food must be refrigerated within two hours after the meal and should be used within three or four days. In the freezer, leftovers are safe for three to four months. Food will cool more quickly in smaller portions, so you'll want to cut whole roasts, turkeys or hams into chunks or slices. To enjoy the bounty later on, cover and reheat until the food temperature reaches 165 degrees–then enjoy!
