Leftover Turkey Recipes

From turkey sliders to turkey pot pie, you’ll find a few creative leftover turkey recipes to use up that delicious Thanksgiving meat!


If you’re lucky, you’ll have a bit of turkey leftover after Thanksgiving! Other than turkey sandwiches (which are amazing in their own right), what else can you make? I’ve gathered a few recipe ideas to give you a little inspiration. Some of the recipes can be made if you have some leftover stuffing and cranberry sauce too! I did sneak in a recipe for mashed potato soup (it’s at the very end) in case you have some leftover mashed potatoes you want to use up as well!
