Holiday Hosting By The Numbers:

Whether it's your first (or tenth) time hosting Thanksgiving dinner, we're here to help make planning a breeze.

HOW MUCH TURKEY DO I NEED?

Let's be honest, you can never have too much turkey! But as a general rule, plan to have 1.5lbs of turkey per guest.

HOW MANY SIDES SHOULD I SERVE?

The more the merrier! Plan to have at least 2 of each category of sides

(2 veggies, 2 starches, 2 desserts).

HOW MUCH STUFFING PER GUEST?

3/4 cup of stuffing per guest is sure to leave them satisfied! You ain't seen stuffin' yet — don't forget the potatoes!

How to prep your Lucky's Market Turkey

​I thought my turkey was fresh.

Why does it feel frozen?

Fresh turkeys will sometimes feel hard on the outside because they are chilled to 28 degrees for safe shipping. Only the outer part of the turkey should be hard, not the entire turkey.

Remember to:

  • Thaw your turkey 1 to 3 days in advance of cooking.

  • Thaw the turkey in your kitchen sink with cold water, in the original packaging.

  • NEVER let the turkey get warm.

  • The cold water needs to be changed every 30 mins.

  • Thaw the turkey until the bag feels soft. For a fresh turkey that feels hard, thaw between 1 and 4 hours.

  • After the turkey is thawed, store it in the refrigerator in the original packaging.
