Leftover Turkey Recipes

Turkey Recipes - Turkey Leftovers


Turkey may be the star of Thanksgiving and a Christmas dinner and a favourite year round because of its low-fat healthy meat but it is generally a rather large bird and inevitably there will be leftovers. There are endless leftover turkey recipes and here's a selection of some of my favourites for your leftover festive bird.

Coronation Turkey Recipe

The coronation in this recipe is usually mixed with cooked chicken. This turkey recipe, however has replaced the chicken to become Coronation Turkey, another great way to use up leftover turkey.

Coronation chicken was designed for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II as a representation of the, then, colonial nature of the British Empire so includes fruit, curry and mayonnaise. There may no longer be a British empire but this recipes remains a firm favourite all over the British Isles.

The perfect salad for left over turkey. Inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe for left over turkey it is a delicious blend of Asian spices, aromas and fruit. The salad can be prepared in advance and served cool or cooked at the last minute and served hot immediately it is ready. Whichever, Asian Turkey with Cranberries and Pomegranate is the perfect salad whenever you have leftover turkey; chicken or duck also work well.
