How much turkey do you really need?

How big should your turkey be? Often, people purchase a turkey much larger than they actually need, because the size you see in the grocery store can be deceiving compared to how much meat it yields.

Turkey Calculator - this great resource from Butterball will give you an approximate size needed based on the number of adults and children for dinner.

Of course, some do buy extra and freeze some. There are plenty of recipes that call for cooked turkey, so if you cube it and freeze it in 1 or 2 pound freezer bags, it will definitely come in handy when your family is ready to eat turkey again!

For optimum freezer results and safe cooking, remove the meat from the bone within two hours, and freeze immediately, using in recipes within 2 months.

If you purchase a frozen turkey, find out how much time you need to let a turkey unthaw in the refrigerator
