Can you freeze leftover turkey?
Yes you can freeze leftover turkey. The key is to take all of the meat off the bone and package in an air tight container.
I like to use a ziplock baggie and sqeeze as much air out of it as I can. Then make sure the seal is locked well. Having air in the container will cause freezer burn. Here is a good article about freezing Thanksgiving leftovers.
