ack! My family is nuts. Will a 5 lb turkey breast, with brest bones, but no legs/wings be enough for 5 people? Most of us think so, but we have one who doesn't. What do you all think?
I guess if you make a lot of stuffing and sweet potatoes...
Seriously, though, aren't they on sale for like $5.00 for a 16+# bird this week? Why not just buy one of those and roast it? Is your breast range-fed or something? Even those
are about $15/whole bird over here, I can only imagine they are cheaper on the mainland???
Normally we just get some deli sliced and make sandwiches and go to the beach, but this year the weather is overcast and cold and my friend wants to roast the bird, so we're going with a more traditional celebration. My personal opinion: do what works for your family. If 5# of breast is all you think you'll eat, you won't have a whole stinking pan of leftovers to deal with... and all that congealed stuff that makes one wonder why we even roast one once
