recipes for leftover turkey

Christmas is coming and for most people that means one thing – turkey!

But what are we to do with the leftover turkey after Christmas Day? A human can only eat so many turkey sandwiches before turkey-fatigue starts to set in.

So that’s where you come in – we’re looking for your favourite turkey recipes. Do you have a great recipe for turkey curry? Turkey casserole? A turkey risotto?

Whatever the recipe, we want to hear about it – just leave a link in the Linky at the end of this post.

And to kick it off, here’s our family’s favourite way of using up leftover turkey after Christmas – leftover Turkey Pie.

Leftover Turkey Pie Recipe


  • 500g leftover turkey, cut roughly into chunks (remove any tough bits at this stage)
  • 500g shortcrust pastry
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 leeks
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • Cornflour
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • First, pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celcius, or Gas Mark 6
  • Next, fry the onion, carrot and leek in a large pan until they’re softened. Pour in the chicken stock, herbs and seasoning.
  • Add cooked turkey to the pan, mix cornflour with water and use to thicken the stock, as needed.
  • Let the mixture cool.
  • Roll out half the pastry and place in an oven proof dish. Top with the turkey mixture and use the second half of the pastry to cover.
  • Pinch and crimp the edges of the pastry to seal the pie.
  • Cook for 30-40 minutes until the top of the pie is golden brown.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
