How many people will your oven roasted turkey serve?

Pick a turkey based on the number of guests. Turkeys typically range from small to XXL, with a small turkey serving five to seven people, and XXL serving up to 22 guests. If you are a lover of leftovers, choose a larger turkey. For those cooking a goose for Christmas dinner, remember that it will reduce in size while cooking because of the rendering fat, so scale up your choice of goose accordingly.
