25 Best Ways to Use Leftover Turkey and Ham


Thanksgiving is just three days away, so you know what that means…tons of good food!  If your family, like mine, shares a traditional feast, than you can expect to be dining on turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, pie, possibly ham, and more of your own family recipes. 

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is all of of the leftovers!  It takes a lot of effort to cook that much good food.  Lucky for us, all of that effort usually pays off with a break from cooking for a few days, thanks to the leftovers we get to use up.  There are dozens of great ways to use up leftover turkey and ham.  After I share this list of yummy recipes with you, you might want to go out and buy a too-big turkey just so you have an excuse to make more of them!
