What to Do with Leftover Turkey

Cooking a whole turkey for Thanksgiving is a must, especially when you factor in all the delicious meals you can make with leftovers.

Cooked turkey will last about 3 days in the refrigerator, or up to 2 months in the freezer! Plenty of time to make some of our favorute turkey cheddar sliders, or taco soup!

Some of these recipes may use chicken, but you can always substitute your sliced/shredded turkey! ENJOY!
