Holiday leftovers: How long should I keep them?

When in doubt, throw it out. But a good gauge, cooked food leftovers can usually stay in the fridge for only three or four days. And if you want to put food in the freezer, it will last indefinitely, but at some point it will start to lose flavor. Of course, if something smells off or looks funny, you shouldn’t eat it.

Eat turkey leftovers within 3 to 4 days…

Casseroles and mashed potatoes 3 to 5 days…

Reminder: Refrigerate within 2 hours of serving.
