How Much Turkey per Person? Use This Rule of Thumb. — Thanksgiving at The Kitchn

I think that the best thing about Thanksgiving (aside from spending it with friends and family members) is the turkey. You eat it the day of with piles of gravy, that night in sandwiches slathered with cranberry sauce, and often for many days after in different dishes. So, if you’re like me, having too little turkey can be a total disaster. Do you know how to choose the right amount of turkey to feed your Thanksgiving Day guests?
