White Turkey Serving Platter for the Holidays Reviewed

turkey platter
One of the first gifts my husband's grandmother gave me, was a large white turkey platter.  At the time, I had no idea what a treasure this one serving tray would become to our family.  It is now a part of our holiday tradition.  

Thirty-five years ago, my mother hosted Thanksgiving in her home and we all gathered at my grandmother's home for Christmas.  Both women cooked a lot for the holidays, but my mother always cooked the turkey for both celebrations.  Clearly, I didn't have a need for the large turkey platter when I first received it, but I still loved having it.

Over the years, responsibilities have shifted as needed.  Mom & I prepare the holiday food together, but we moved the cooking to my home for convenience when my children were younger.  The hosting house of the day of the actual meal varies and is determined by the number in attendance or convenience.  I don't remember exactly when it happened, but baking the turkey became my primary responsibility when cooking for the holidays, and that large turkey platter became a necessity.  

Since my Christmas china platters are not large enough for a turkey, I use the large white turkey platter at Christmas too.  Because it is white, it is the perfect compliment for my Christmas china.

White Turkey Platter

There are several beautifully colored turkey platters, but I prefer my white turkey platter.  It coordinates with almost any china and looks pretty in any room regardless of the table settings or wall colors.

The embossed (raised) fruit pattern around the edge adds a touch of elegance to Mr. Turkey and is perfect for the holiday season. 

The porcelain platter on the right, which is similar to my platter, is microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher safe, which makes using it a lot more pleasurable.  

It is 17½" wide, large enough for a a whole turkey if desired. We usually slice our turkey before serving.

  1. Gorgeous turkey platter, Sylvestermouse. In addition to being really attractive and very useful, yours is extra-special because it came from your grandmother.

    PS: Love your Cooking for the Holidays website. You feature some especially helpful recipes and cooking related articles for holiday meals any time of year.

    1. Thank you so much Elf! You are always so very kind and supportive. I truly appreciate your friendship. Like my turkey platter, that Cooking for the Holidays website is very special to me. It sure makes sharing recipes with friends & family easier too!

  2. That is a lovely platter and very generous in it's size. Like you when we have our turkey at Thanksgiving, we tend to carve it in the kitchen and arrange it on the platter. It's another way to make the dinner time flow better IMHO. No waiting for that special piece of turkey while the potatoes and gravy are getting cold. Everyone is eyeing that beautiful platter with it's lovely roasted turkey on board. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    1. I see it in the movies, Olivia, but I've never seen anyone place the whole turkey at the table and curve it there. You are so right! All of the side dishes would get cold if we waited to curve at the table, plus, carving a turkey is pretty messy if you need the whole thing for the family meal.

  3. Family heirlooms associated with special times gathered around the holiday table are always best. They feed the spirit and the body. Lovely platter and even lovelier family. Sending you early wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving. So many are grateful for you.

    1. Those gifts take on even more significance when the giver is no longer present. They serve as a reminder of that loved ones thoughtfulness and in a way, they are still with us. Thank you for your sweet compliment too.

  4. Cnythia I have one as well! It's not as fancy as yours, but was given to me when I got married I think? I actually can't remember. I do prefer the size of the one you featured here. It's beautiful!

  5. What a beautiful White Turkey Platter! I always think it is lovely when food for special occasions is arranged on beautiful crockery. I am sure it is all the more special to you as it was gifted to you by your husbands grandmother. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  6. Mouse, having special serving pieces as part of our holiday traditions makes these festive family occasions even more special. What a wonderful gift to receive, or give! Your Cooking For the Holidays site reflects your love of cooking and your wide repertoire of traditional holiday recipes that you share so generously.
