A roasted turkey is a simple and nutritious entree that often results in large quantities of leftovers. If your family is not able to eat the whole bird in one sitting, leftovers should be sliced and placed in sealed containers in the refrigerator. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, cooked turkey should be refrigerated immediately after it cools, as harmful bacteria multiplies fastest when food is between 40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Reheating turkey slices is simple and makes for a quick and easy dinner for busy families.
