Refrigerate turkey leftovers within 2 hours after cooking. Cooked turkey stays fresh in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days, but immediate freezing will provide premium quality. Chop leftover turkey and wrap 1- to 2-cup portions in heavy-duty plastic wrap to seal in freshness. Next, place the airtight plastic-wrapped packages in a heavy-duty zip-top bag for double protection. Date the package and use the meat within 3 to 4 months.

We took some poetic license with this list, but it is literally and figuratively an alpha and omega roster of leftover turkey ideas, with appropriate recipes from our online collection if we have them.
