What To Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

Sometimes using up leftovers can be a challenge, especially when a ton of food is involved. Not only do you have a ton of turkey, but you also have to consider what to do with all the sides and desserts as well. However, dealing with leftovers doesn’t have to be a struggle. Here are three simple tips and tricks to help pack and use up leftovers easily and safely.

Pack Leftovers Accordingly
Believe it or not, you should start packing up your leftovers right after Thanksgiving dinner. You might want to spend time with your guests, but you don’t want the food you worked so hard to make to go bad. You’ll want to cut the turkey off the bone two hours after it is taken out of the oven. Pack it in containers and put it in the refrigerator or freezer as soon as possible. When you put turkey leftovers in the refrigerator, you only have four days until it goes bad. So if you don’t plan on using them in the next four days, put them in the freezer. Make sure to use frozen leftovers within four months. It tends to lose flavor or dry out. However, if you’re looking for convenience when it comes to packing up leftovers you can try packing it in meal-sized portions. This is practical and will make using leftovers easier for you in the coming days.

Dish Them Out
Keep the Thanksgiving spirit going by sharing leftovers with your guests. That’s right! You don’t have to keep everything. If you have a ton of leftovers from dinner, you can easily dish them out to your guests. Send them home with an extra meal. It’ll be sure to put a smile on their face and its a great way to give thanks to the people you care most about.
