How Much Turkey Do I Need to Feed a Crowd?

Hosting Thanksgiving this year? We tell you how much turkey you need to feed 8, 13, or 60 people.

How Much Turkey Should I Buy to Feed Eight People (Plus Leftovers)?

A 16-pound bird should feed everyone, plus supply plenty of leftovers for sandwiches, soup, or a casserole.

How many pounds of turkey do I need to feed 13 people?

We recommend serving 1.5 lbs per person to ensure generous portions and leftovers. Preparing a 20lb turkey for your 13 guests will provide perfect portions and some delicious leftovers!

An 18 lb. turkey offers 25 servings. To provide enough turkey for 60 guests, we recommend offering two 22 or 23 lb. turkeys.
