I got a 5lb pack of thinly sliced turkey deli meat from a food pantry. It’s been in my deep freezer. I didn’t realize it was sliced until I just went to take it out to make pot pie’s. I put it back in the freezer because I’m lost at what to do with it now. There’s no way we’ll go through it all on sandwiches before it goes bad.

Any ideas to use this up on dinners besides the obvious of heat it in gravy and throw it over mashed potatoes?

  1. I would still chop some up and make pot pies. Turkey is turkey no matter how it is sliced.

  2. Make your pot pies or anything else you want. It won’t suck.

    Turkey tetrazzini…soup…roll slices around stuffing and bake with gravy up top…

    Rachel Ruben sandwich
    Sauerqraut, thousand island dressing, cheese and turkey

  4. Heat it up with gravy and put it over a slice of bread or mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.

  5. Sub for chicken.

    Chop some up and make Turkey salad or use in casseroles. Could also make Turkey noodle soup

  7. Turkey and cheese quesadillas. If your family eats those you will probably run through the whole pack!

  8. Turkey roll ups, casseroles, quesadillas, sliders, and many more options 🙂 you can definitely use it for a pot pie !

  9. Sandra Allnutt

    Chop it up add mushrooms mixed veg cook mushrooms mixed veg in a tin of chicken soup when cooked add meat put in pie or top with mashed potatoes and grated cheese or add to pasta

  10. You can use it in pot pie. Just cut in to little squares, make a lot of them and add to the gravy/veggies.

  11. Amanda K Bonnette

    Turkey roll ups add stuffing roll top with gravy and bake .. Turkey salad … Use a Chicken chili recipe and use Turkey instead … Turkey bacon club sandwiches … Salads … Ground up and put in home made meatballs or meatloaf …

  12. Heat it up in BBQ sauce and put it on a pizza. Maybe turkey and cheese taquitos? What about a good old breakfast casserole with turkey?

  13. Alisha Benson Bidetti

    Idk if this will work, but the Boar’s Head brochure at my deli had a recipe to dice the turkey (granted, thicker than what you have) and heat w oil like stirfry & add fajita seasoning! I’m thinking buffalo sauce might work, too & serve hot as a buffalo turkey sandwich. 🤷‍♀️

  14. Make hot roasted turkey sandwiches, only don’t lay the turkey slices flat on the bread. Scrunch up the slice from the sides and lay them scrunched side by side on the bread. Lay another slice of bread on top or fix them open faced and pour gravy over top of the turkey. Fix mashed potatoes and green beans as sides for a nice meal. You’ll probably use up about 5 or 6 slices of turkey per sandwich. That’s a lot of turkey.

  15. Cheese n turkey melts, dice it up into a house salad with sliced eggg n veggys…could put it into an omelette!

  16. Pamela Schell-Graden

    Make roll ups using a cucumber or dill pickle slice, some cream cheese and the meat. Lay out the meat, spread some cream cheese on it and roll a pickle in it like a blanket. Can eat whole or cut in slices and secure with toothpicks if you like. Or put it on grilled cheese just place it on the cheese between the bread b4 you cook it, make mini sub sandwiches on hot dog buns, make a stir fry with vegetables and mix in chopped pieces of the meat

  17. Elizabeth Thomas

    Make stuffing and roll it uo, bake serve with mashed potatoes (scallop potatoes I like) geean beans or white sweet corn

  18. Kristy Stewart Paulsen

    Dice or slice Pottles, onions s celery, carrots. Diced ham, mix together with desired seasonings (I use salt, pepper, garlic, basil) layer on the pan with choice of cream soup and cheese, with final layer of cheese on top. Bake at 375 starting at 45 minutes. Can also replace ham with diced chicken or hamburger.

  19. Could I still use it for the pot pie, can chop up and make some vegetables and do chicken ala King over biscuits, can do Turkey stuffing roll ups just use two or three pieces of meat make instant dressing stuffing put in the middle roll it up we can even add peas and carrots to the dressing so you have all my meal covered with gravy and bake. Can do turkey cheese wraps or quesadillas, I can do turkey broccoli quiche or strata turkey salad I mean really whatever you want to do.

  20. How about a nice cold turkey wrap if you don’t have wraps use lettuce tomato onion wrap it in the lettuce and just like a nice cold refreshing sandwich you can make them ahead put them in the fridge so they’re nice and cool and crisp

  21. Make stuffing according to box. Wrap turkey slice around spoonfuls of stuffing and roll up. Put in casserole dish. Make a pack of turkey gravy and pour over it and bake.

  22. Sherry Rednour Purkey

    Turkey club casserole
    Spray and 9×13 pan with Pam. Put a pound and a half to 2 lb of turkey in the bottom, cook and crumble pound bacon. Bacon put that on top of the turkey, cup and a half of shredded cheese on top of the bacon, chop one large tomato but that on top of the bacon, mix one and a half cup of mayonnaise and half a 1 and 1/2 cup of sour cream together. Put that on top then unroll one container of crescent rolls and lay them flat on the mixture. Bake according to the directions on the crescent roll can.

    Place cheese n turkey on a flour tortilla or flat bread. Then add a pickle spear n roll up seal end with cream cheese.
    Or skip pickle n add cranberry Sauce.

    You can still make pot pies with it. Stack the slices and cut them, and put them in the pie. I like to take three or four slices, lay them out, fill them with cooled prepared stove top stuffing. Roll them up, put them next to each other on the baking pan, pour on a can of gravy on top. Bake for 15 to twenty minutes, everything is already cooked, so you’re just heating it through. It’s really good!

  25. Margaret Ahrens

    Make bread stuffing and take a slice and place stuffing mix on top and roll, place in casserole dish with a little gravy on the bottom of dish first. Repeat till you have dish filled. Pour rest of gravy on top and cover with foil and bake at 325f for approximately a half hour to 45 minutes or until gravy is bubbling.

  26. Blend some Chipotle dressing with 8 oz of softened cream cheese. Spread mixturr onto a tortilla, lay a scrunched turkey slice at one side the roll up into a log and eat as is or cut the log into a pinwheel. Or maybe you could put the roll ups in a baking dish and put mozzarella cheese on top of the rolls and bake maybe at 375° until the cheese melts.

  27. Karen Lee Riggs

    Make a box of stuffing. Pour gravy in a 9×13 baking sheet. Roll a slice of turkey and a spoonful of stuffing in tortilla shell. Place tortillas in gravy. Cover with gravy and bake at 375 until hot.

  28. Debbie Simmons Campbell

    Turkey roll ups. Roll up slices of Turkey with stuffing… arrange side by side and cover with gravy. Bake 350 till bubbly. If the Turkey is thin slices use two or three slices per roll

  29. Kristy Stewart Paulsen

    One pot wonder. all items are optional to your tastes. Prepare any chopped/cubed/ground meat you choose, any chopped vegetables you choose, (I use a lot of frozen)(I like potatoes, onions, celery, carrots, corn) but you can switch it up as you like. Any seasoning you choose, I love salt, pepper and garlic. Towards the end scramble in egg. Melt cheese on top. Adjust the quantity for the number of people and adjust for dietary needs, removing or changing ingredients. Yumm.

  30. Slice it up and add to turkey or chicken gravy. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes or bread like open face hot turkey sammiches.
