What size turkey for 10 adults. I want to have leftovers
Figure about 1.5 pounds per person.
I'd recommend buying the largest turkey you can fit into your oven. That's what we do, and we're always happy with the results. :)
I fed 9 people with 2, 3lb. turkey breasts. This recipe is worth it and so much easier than a whole bird: http://food52.com/blog...
I deep-fried a 15lb turkey (golden perfection) for 10 people. Leftovers were perfect quantity.
