Anybody ever freeze cooked turkey?

I'm thinking of cooking 2 turkey breast just to be safe and I want left overs. If it's too much haw does cooked turkey freeze? Should I add broth to the vacuum bags to help keep it from drying out?

    Absolutely. I always cook a bigger bird than I need and freeze the leftovers. I'll add just a small amount of juice. The vacuum sealer can't deal with much.

    Right now I have 2 Cajun turkeys, 5 boneless turkey breasts, 2 fatties, chili and 2 quarts of turkey broth in the freezer. Foods saver is my friend.

    Go for it. In the past we have frozen turkey in sandwich bags (non-zip) in smaller portions, then put all the little bags in a big zip loc with all the air squeezed out. If that worked, you will definitely be ok with a foodsaver. If you heat up by placing the foodsaver bag in boiling water, there should be little chance of it drying out.
