What breed of turkey is the one you eat on Thanksgiving?

  • Bourbon Red
  • Broad Breasted White correct

    Not to put a face to your meal or anything but the breed of turkey that is bred for consumption is the Broad Breasted White which is 65% white meat and 35% dark meat and can grow up to- wait for it- 50 pounds! Midget Whites and Bourbon Reds tend to be more on the 50/50 scale and taste gamier than their cousins. Narragansett turkeys look more like the turkeys you see decorated on your plates or porcelain figurines at Thanksgiving. They tend to be less than twice the size and though they are pretty, don't really have much meat. Anywho, Bon Appetite!
