Turkey for One?

mariacarmen | Nov 20, 2009 10:48 AM

My SO is going to be alone for Thanksgiving – his choice, but I'd like to make a small version of the dinner for him before I go away. If I want to cook a portion of turkey just enough for one or two (so he has some leftovers), does anyone know if I can buy just a breast, or a leg and thigh, or some such portion of the bird? Do they sell turkeys in pieces like chicken? I don't want to buy it precooked, I'd like to make it myself. I'm in San Francisco, so if anyone knows a store in the area . . . The sides are all easy to scale down, it's just the main I'm worried about. Thanks in advance for any tips.
