I love turkey. We make it for Thanksgiving, for Christmas and usually at least one other time a year. Sometimes we only make a turkey breast but usually, we make a whole turkey because we eat it for a few days before changing it up with new leftover turkey recipes.
What to Make with Leftover Turkey
After the second day of leftovers, my family starts to complain when they see the pan of turkey come out of the fridge. A long time ago, it makes me start to think, what to make with leftover turkey? For the longest time, there were only a few things that I could think of. Whenever I would wonder what to make with leftover turkey it was usually turkey sandwiches and a twist on chicken salad with turkey instead. Both are yummy, but it still feels like eating leftover turkey.
Leftover Turkey Recipes
That is when I started coming up with leftover turkey recipes. Leftover turkey frittata is a great way to use up leftover turkey. I also make leftover turkey soup, a turkey noodle casserole, and a leftover turkey potato recipe. (All of these leftover turkey recipes are located on our sister site, Our Wabi Sabi Life) We will be adding two more leftover turkey recipes on that site as well, Turkey stroganoff and turkey lasagna.
Leftover Turkey Frittata
What I love about leftover turkey frittata is that it is basically a free meal. Almost everything in this leftover turkey recipe is stuff that was already made during a turkey dinner. And one thing I love it when I can reuse ingredients and not throw anything away.
