Healthy Leftover Turkey Recipes
You’re going to love these simple leftover turkey recipes with a healthy twist.
It’s so easy to make healthy leftovers out of a turkey dinner. Think about it, the food you already have is healthy.
- Turkey is a lean protein to keep you full and satiated.
- Leftover veggie trays are an easy veggie side dish (or any cooked vegetable dishes, or a simple bagged salad)
- Have a complex carb with potatoes, sweet potatoes, or rice.
You could make mini turkey dinners or you can repurpose the ingredients and make a new meal entirely.
You could also take any of your favorite chicken recipes and replace the chicken with cooked turkey (you just won’t have to cook it as long, since the turkey is precooked).
Leftover Turkey Recipes
These are the best recipes for leftover turkey! From turkey salads to leftover turkey casseroles, and of course turkey soups.
Don’t forget you can use this chicken recipe to make pressure cooker turkey bone broth, I personally used a Ninja Foodi but you can use an Instant Pot or stove top for that recipe.
