How long can you keep turkey after cooking? What to do with your Christmas leftovers


For this particular step, it’s also recommended that you cool the leftovers within 90 minutes after you’ve finished eating.

Once it has cooled, you can then wrap it completely or cut it up so that it can be stored in a food storage container.

When you go to put it in your fridge, do not store it under or next to uncooked meat as the juices could contaminate it.

On the flip-side, if you want to freeze any of your turkey leftovers you’ll give yourself a significantly longer time-frame to decide when to eat all of it.
