Try and remove all the meat from the turkey once you’ve finished with your Christmas meal. This makes it a bit easier to store in the fridge, and you can divide the meat into separate containers ready for those delicious leftover sandwiches like this one with crispy fried sprouts.
You can freeze cooked turkey meat so divide it into portions and seal in freezer safe bags. Make sure you add a date onto the bag so you know how long you have to use it up, and once defrosted, eat it within 24 hours.
Plus, if you’re inspired to make the most of other leftovers you have, check out 15 foods you didn’t know you could freeze. You might be surprised to find out you can freeze wine, eggs, cheese and much more!
