Unlock the full potential of your leftover turkey with one (or more) of these amazing leftover roast turkey recipes that will transform your post-holiday meals into super tasty dinners. We've handpicked a selection of diverse and delicious ways to reinvent that leftover turkey. Say goodbye to boring Christmas or thanksgiving leftovers!
I could probably eat a hundred leftover turkey sandwiches in a row before I get bored.
Ideally with lashings of salted butter, a pinch of salt, leftover stuffing, cranberry sauce, and maybe a roast potato or 2, all dipped in some warmed-up leftover gravy.
Christmas day evenings wouldn't be the same without one of those butties. Even if I'm still full from dinner, I can always find a bit of room!!
However, I know Chris and the kids probably wouldn't be happy with sandwiches for dinner every evening until January, so here is a collection of recipes for using up that leftover Turkey, OR recipes that use leftover chicken - which of course can easily be swapped out for Turkey.
