A good size of turkey for the average family is 6.4kg oven-ready. This will easily feed 8 people with plenty left over for Boxing Day. Waitrose Bronze Feathered Free Range Turkey is an excellent choice. As there are so many accompaniments to the traditional lunch it is best to keep the turkey fairly simple.
If you don't want a whole turkey, or your family prefer white meat, choose a Waitrose Turkey Breast Crown. They are quicker to cook and very simple to carve with no waste.
