Storage Know-How: Leftover turkey meat should be removed from the carcass, wrapped tightly and refrigerated for no more than 3 to 4 days. For longer storage, chop the turkey and freeze in 2-cup portions. Thaw as needed for use in salads, casseroles and soups during the hectic holiday season or anytime! Leftover stuffing, potatoes and cranberries can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
Make-Ahead: Soups can be made a day in advance. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator as needed.
Safe Food Handling: When reheating leftovers, be sure to heat foods such as stuffing, potatoes and casseroles to an internal temperature of 165°F.
