Hosting a Thanksgiving dinner and not sure how to prepare? Don’t stress. Getting ready for the big holiday is easy with our turkey timing and portion guide.
So you’ve invited your guests and definitely want some extra turkey for leftovers – see the chart below to make sure you buy the correct sized bird for your party. A general rule of thumb is 1 to 1 ½ pounds per guest.
See our H-E-B Turkey Selection Guide to learn more.
Want to save a little money and have several days before the big meal? Frozen is the way to go.
Pro Tip: Place your packaged turkey on a tray to catch any juices and then set on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator. Allow 24 hours for every 5 pounds of meat.
Use the chart below to plan the best time to put the turkey in the oven. Add 15-30 minutes for stuffed birds. The turkey is done when a meat thermometer reads 165°F in all areas, including stuffing. For a moister meal, allow turkey to rest for 20 – 30 minutes before carving.
Pro Tip: Use a foil tent to prevent excess browning. Remove foil 45 minutes before end of suggested roasting time.
Although roasting is the traditional option, it’s not the only one. See full list of turkey recipes.
