We all love the holidays. It’s a great time to get together with family and friends. There are heartfelt traditions, delicious recipes, and so many leftovers.

Thanksgiving dinner leftovers are not only great for using the day after Thanksgiving, but can be frozen and used in your poultry recipes for months.

Not quite ready for the leftovers yet? If you’re still looking for Thanksgiving dinner recipes, here are a few of my favorites:

Wondering what to do with Thanksgiving Leftovers?

Store all of your Thanksgiving leftovers in air tight meal prep containers to make them last.

  • Leftover Turkey: Store (off the bone is easiest) in the fridge for up to five days or in the freezer up to two months. If you have leftover chicken you can store it the same.
  • Leftover Cranberries: You can freeze fresh cranberries or keep them in the fridge. I prefer making this easy fresh cranberry sauce with mine and freezing that.

The easiest thing I think anyone can make with leftover turkey is soup! If you’ve found yourself here without turkey, you can use rotisserie chicken for them as well.
