How to Use Leftover Ham or Turkey

You spent hours at the table devouring every last bite of turkey and ham. The meats were delicious and the leftovers must be used. I’ve shared with you our Ham Croquetas recipe that is perfect for the leftover ham like Hormel® Cure 81®.  That same recipe can be easily be tweaked to make turkey croquetas. 

Turkey Leftovers 

Store your leftover ham or turkey in the fridge for 3-4 days max. If you’ll be making your croquetas later than that, store the leftovers in the freezer. Be sure that they are wrapped well so nothing gets freezer burned.
