It is time to use ’em or lose ’em. Here are some guidelines, and recipes for using up Thanksgiving leftovers. Substitute turkey in any of the chicken recipes below.

  • Turkey should be frozen or used within 2 – 6 days.
  • Frozen cooked turkey should be used within 2 months and should be cooked thoroughly, immediately after thawing.
  • If you have gravy or leftover mashed potatoes they should have been used within 1 – 2 days after Thanksgiving. Use them today or toss them out.
  • Leftover gravy is an excellent addition to “Mustgo Soup,” mashed potatoes are, too. Both thicken and add flavor.
  • Cranberry sauce can be stirred into yogurt, served over ice cream, or it makes a nice accompaniment to pork chops, ham, chicken, or fish. It should be used within 7 days. (The sugar acts as a preservative.)

  1. Who has leftover mashed potatoes? I never do! 🙂

    This Thanksgiving I was at my uncle’s house and the Saturday after he made turkey tacos. They were awesome! I’d never thought of that before… he shredded the turkey meat and simmered it with some stuff (I’m guessing onions, tomatoes, taco sauce…) and it ended up being like pulled pork or a chicken taco or something. It was awesome. 🙂
