How to Store Leftover Turkey
Do you know the best way to store leftover turkey?
We recommend storing turkey in slices in foil, and then a container/bag (if in the freezer – then freezer safe container/bag).
If stored in the FRIDGE, it can last for 3-4 days/
If stored in the FREEZER, it can last for 2-3 months.
To REHEAT, add to the oven or microwave until cooked through (we recommend thawing first). Like most meats, it’s not recommended to reheat it more than once.
