turkey

How do I know what size turkey will feed 7-8 people? Does it go by pounds per person? The turkey I will be getting this week free (Acme) and is 22lbs. I have the option for a free one or to buy bigger for .99 a lb. What should I do? Is 22 gonna be enough? My MIL also offerend her free turkey breast to add on if needed. Mind you, one of the 8 is 2 lol So count her out I guess lol Thanks

  • I think a 22 lb. bird is plenty for 8 people. Remember, you'll most likely have sides to go with it too, so just relax and enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!!
