5 Ideas for...Leftover Turkey.

Every year I say I wont, but I do.  I buy a turkey that is big enough to feed the whole of England, and every year I say I am going to make some delicious recipes with all the leftover's...I never do it just gets thrown in the bin. So I asked my Instagram followers what they all do with their leftover turkey at Christmas. And so this little list was born, 5 ideas for your leftover Christmas turkey!

1. Soup.

There are loads and loads of soup recipes. Everyone has their own way of doing it. I love Delia for your more traditional recipes, I found this Turkey Soup on her website.

2. Pie.

Another fave seemed to be pies. Lots of people suggested a pie, using your leftover veg, turkey and gravy. Again loads of recipes online for this. But basically bung it all in an oven proof dish and top with some pastry bang it in the oven and wham bam thank you mam...you got meal number 2!

3. Curry.

This recipe has stuck in my mind since last year when Reza Mahammad made this amazing Turkey Curry on This Morning, I didn't get round to making it last year...This year maybe? 

4. Stir fry.

A really simple dish, I don't know why I didn't think of this!

I love Jamie Oliver's Burrito version, especially if you having guests over and are serving a buffet and want something a bit different. YUM!

And if all else fails there's always...

5. Turkey and Stuffing Sandwiches.

We've all done it! We all secretly love them! Yum Yum Yum!

So they are my ideas. What will you be doing with your leftover's this year?


  1. I love the look of the turkey soup - yummy! I often put leftover turkey in a pie with the leftover ham and leeks or the traditional boxing day sandwich - yummy!

    1. I think we will be going for the pie this year....I'd love to do the curry but the hubs isnt really a fan!

  2. I would never have thought about turkey soup. Turkey sandwiches are the yummiest for using up leftovers, although curry... yes please!

    1. I wouldn't have either Wendy! Something new every day and all that x

  3. Thrown in the biiiiin???? ABY!!!!!! I always buy one that is too big too, always paranoid that I wont have enough for everyone! Great ideas for leftovers, no doubt I will be needing these in a couple of weeks! #TheList

  4. Lol I just commented on Aby's post and got confused! I mean Beckyyyyyyyyy!! Lol. I blame the shock of you throwing turkey in the bin!! xx

    1. OOOOPPPSSS!!! There just always sooooo much left over!

  5. Ah you have to have sandwiches with stuffing! :) Thanks for linking up to #TheList xx
