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.
HIC Turkey Oversized Serving Platter
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.
