Question: How long does leftover turkey last in the refrigerator?
Answer: It is recommended to use your leftover turkey and stuffing within 3-4 days and gravy within 1-2 days. Or, you can freeze your leftover turkey. Cooked turkey keeps for 3-4 months in a freezer.
Plan to debone your turkey and refrigerate or freeze all of your leftovers in shallow containers within 2 hours of cooking.
When reheating your leftovers, make sure they are thoroughly heated to a temperature of 165 degrees or until hot and steaming. Bring your gravy to a boil before serving.
