What Size Thanksgiving Turkey Should You Buy

When I buy a turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas, I want to make sure I have plenty left over afterwards. So I always buy a larger bird than I know I will need for the main dinner. Bear in mind that the following weights are for uncooked turkeys and make the appropriate allowances depending on your goals.

  •  Make a list of the number of people you will be serving. Remember that children eat smaller portions than adults and that a large group of adult males can consume quite a lot of food, and even come back for more. You might also have vegetarians or vegans attending, so allow for that too.
  • To have some moderate leftovers, figure on having enough for 1 pound of unstuffed turkey per person. If you want more leftovers, allow 1.3 pounds per person and you should be safe.
  • If you're just buying a turkey breast, allow 3/4 pounds per person. For boneless turkey breast, allow 1/2 pound per guest.
  • Allow about 1-1/4 pounds per guest if you're buying a pre-stuffed, frozen turkey.
  • Turkeys come as small as a few pounds and as large as 40 pounds, though you should find the majority available at the grocery store range around 10-15 pounds. The large the bird is, the higher proportion of meat to bone.
  • Larger birds allow you the flexibility of freezing cooked parts to use at a later date.
