Turkey Recipe Ideas

Leftover turkey?  There's nothing better!  In fact, we'd even suggest that it's worth ordering a larger turkey, just to make sure you have some.......


Aside from the turkey sandwiches on boxing day, here are some more fabulous ideas to make the most of this delicious seasonal treat:

Freezing Leftovers

Leftover cooked turkey freezes very well.

We slice ours, layer it into an ovenproof dish, and pour over any remaining roasting juice or gravy.  Cover with a lid or clingfilm, and freeze.

When you fancy an easy roast dinner, take the dish of frozen turkey out of the freezer and defrost in the fridge overnight.

Pop it in the oven at 180 C for around 30-40 minutes, until thoroughly heated.

Add your favourite veg!

Coronation Turkey


Leftover cooked turkey – approx 500g

3 tbsp mayonnaise

1-2 tsp mild curry powder

1 handful sultanas


Chop the turkey into bite-sized pieces.

Place in a bowl with all the other ingredients and mix well.

Serve with baked potatoes, or use as a sandwich filling.

Turkey and Leek Pie


Leftover cooked turkey - approx 500g, chopped into bite sized pieces

200ml leftover roasting juices (or stock)

3 medium leeks, sliced

3 medium carrots, chopped

1 tsp dried thyme

2 tbsp plain flour

1 glass white wine

250g ready made puff pastry


Melt some butter in a saucepan and add the leeks, carrots and thyme.  Soften for 10-15 minute.  Turn up the heat.  Add the flour and stir until absorbed.  Add the wine and allow to reduce for a few minutes before adding the stock and turkey.  Season to taste.


Transfer the mixture into a pie dish.

Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 6


Roll out the pastry and place on top of the dish.  Score the surface of the pastry in a criss-cross pattern using a knife.

For a nice golden finish, brush over the pastry with melted butter or beaten egg.

Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until golden on top.
