5 Things To Make With Turkey Leftovers!

Christmas is over and you're probably full to the brim with food but if like us you've got leftovers in the fridge this post is to give you a few ideas on how to use up the last few slices of turkey!

Turkey Sandwiches

These are the usual go to for lots of us but if you're a bit bored of the the same turkey and cranberry sauce sandwich it's time to try something a bit different!

Layered sandwich

Add salad for a healthier option or mix with barbecue sauce and layer up for an American style sandwich.

Turkey and Leek Pie 

A traditional pie is a great way to use up turkey and not just have Christmas dinner on repeat! 

Meat pie

Mix with leeks, add mixed herbs and a white sauce or gravy to the turkey and use puff pastry to make a pie. Add bacon too if you have any spare.

Turkey Curry

Make from scratch or simply add a sachet or jar of sauce to knock up a yummy curry.

Use a slow cooker if you have one to ensure the turkey is thoroughly reheated or cook in the oven if you haven't. Serve with rice and naan breads for spicy turkey leftovers.

Turkey Chili 

Just like the curry, this is another recipe you can make from scratch or use a sachet or jar for. 

Chili over nachos

Add peppers and onions to get in some much needed veggies, and serve with wedges, rice or tortilla chips.

Turkey Enchiladas 

Kits mean making enchiladas is super easy to do. Simply shred the turkey and follow the instructions.

Add lots of grated cheese for a yummy topping. These are so filling that you probably won't need any sides either.

Are you planning to use up your turkey with one of these ideas? Let me know in the comments!
