How Much Turkey to Buy

Plan on 1 pound per person for a regular bone-in turkey; about 1/3 pound per person for a boneless breast or turkey roast. Allow more, if you want plenty of leftovers, or to accommodate guests who favor only white or only dark meat.

As with all raw meat, turkey can spoil quickly if not handled properly, so make the commissary the last stop on your holiday shopping trip. And make the turkey the last item placed in your grocery cart. At home, place the turkey in the refrigerator or freezer immediately.
