What platter do you plan to use to serve your Thanksgiving turkey? Many people try to use the platter that came with their regular set of dishes. While these platters are fine for a chicken, pot roast or platter of steaks, often they simply are not large enough for a turkey.
Before serving your turkey, you have a few decisions to make:
* Are you going to serve the turkey whole and have it carved at the table?
* Are you going to carve the turkey in the kitchen and place serving size slices on a platter?
* Are you going to have separate platters for the light meat and dark meat?
Once you have the answers to those questions, you will have a better idea what type of turkey platter you need.
If you are going to serve your turkey whole, you will need a large, sturdy platter that will handle the size turkey you normally purchase. If you serve one that is more than 15 pounds, you want to be particularly sure that your platter will be able to handle it.
If you are going to carve the turkey in the kitchen and serve slices of it on a platter, you will still need a large platter, but probably not as large as you would need to handle the entire turkey.
If you decide to separate the turkey slices onto two platters then, of course, you will need two matching platters, but they can be substantially smaller than the platters necessary to serve all the meat on one platter.
