Let's Talk Turkey! The Low-Down on Thanksgiving Leftovers

Your cheat sheet to keeping your leftovers good.

Fewer meals involve as much prep— and leftovers—as Thanksgiving. How long are you leaving your feast out after everyone eats?

Here’s how to keep dinner safe:

• Don’t rinse your turkey before cooking. Rinsing spreads bacteria around your kitchen.

• Cook stuffing in a separate dish so it can reach a safe temperature of 165 degrees (which doesn’t always happen inside the turkey cavity).

• Don’t let leftovers sit out at room temperature for longer than two hours.
