  • You can still do a turkey just one of the really small ones that is meant for a 5 person family. Chances are you're still going to have some left over, but you can use it in the days after to make different types of meals

  • I'm buying the biggest turkey I can find for my family of 4. Thanksgiving is all about the leftovers as far as I'm concerned! A handy tip is to clean the turkey, then freeze the leftovers in a gallon freezer bag with a bit of gravy. It tastes great that way, and the gravy helps keep freezer burn away. You can have sandwiches, soup, turkey salad (think chicken salad), all sorts of stuff! Yummy!

  • How about turkey breasts?? I made two of those last year, cuz only a few of us actually like turkey, so for them I made them and it was a perfect amt for 4-5 people, so if its just 3, you will have just enough left over for the next day :) I havent read any of the previous comments, so if this was already recomended sorry :)
