Everyone loves a recipe that can be made in one pot, and this turkey stroganoff recipe fits the bill!

I love a classic stroganoff recipe and wanted to create a twist for leftover turkey (or even ground turkey)! Tender meat simmered in a seasoned sour cream sauce is perfect over egg noodles for a hearty meal.

Ingredients and Variations

VEGETABLES With just a few veggies like onions and mushrooms add great savory flavor. Fresh mushrooms add rich flavor to the sauce when cooked.

MEAT This recipe can easily make use of leftover turkey either roasted or ground, or even meatballs. Of course, leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken work too.

EGG NOODLES Egg noodles are easy to find, but they are also fun and delicious when hand-made. This is also great over mashed potatoes or rice.

Tips & Time Savers

  • Using leftover cooked turkey (or chicken) makes this recipe a real timesaver.
  • Canned mushroom soup can be used in place of fresh in a pinch.
  • When adding the mushrooms back to the sauce, be sure to include including the juices to add flavor!
  • Remove the sauce from the heat before adding sour cream. Sour cream can curdle if overheated.

Reheating Leftovers

  • Leftover turkey stroganoff will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for about 3 days.
  • Store the pasta separately and combine once reheated.

Leftover stroganoff can be frozen but freezes best without the sour cream. Sour cream will taste just fine once thawed but the texture can change very slightly.

  1. This site always has some very good versions of favorite old recipes and new stuff and this looks like a winner before even making. Grilled a Turkey and into day two of leftovers before freezing. Once again for ingredients my fridge has 3/4 jug of half and half and plain yogurt and tiny amount of sour cream. Hmmmm? Think I’ll go for it. At least there is about a pound of mushrooms left from gravy! Thanks.5 stars

    1. Hi Madeleine, if you are just starting out I recommend reading the recipe in full all the way through before starting so you know what to expect. Have all your ingredients out and ready to go before you start. And enjoy the process!

  2. Nutrition information excludes the 16oz of egg noodles. Carbs are around 90, and calories about 900 per serve. (Based on 4 servings).

  3. Can’t wait to try this when my mom comes to visit. I’ll be making a turkey breast and I know I’ll have leftovers. She’ll love this.5 stars

  4. Going to make a second batch this week bc first turned out great! I cooked the turkey meat with fresh thyme and rosemary, garlic, smoked sea salt and pepper. I usually switch out heavy cream, which I did here with evaporated goat milk, and also used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream at the end and it turned out SUBLIME! Thank you for this recipe :)5 stars

  5. Wonderful flavor. I always have extra fresh herbs after holidays, so it’s nice to find a recipe to use them in. I left out the sour cream, but the flavor is still fantastic without it.5 stars

  6. You are my go to website for easy, delicious and kid friendly family meal ideas. This was an absolutely delicious recipe for Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. My picky 6 year old even loved it. Thank you for another delicious recipe.5 stars
