How big of a turkey should I buy?
If you want to send guests home with leftovers, 1 ½ pounds per person. If you don’t want leftovers, 1 pound per person.
What do I do if the turkey is underdone?
Cover the breast loosely with foil to prevent the skin from burning and continue to roast, checking the temperature until it reaches 165 degrees. (Tip: a probe thermometer will let you keep a constant eye on the interior temperature of the bird.)
What do I do if the turkey is overdone?
