This year, there may be less people eating leftover turkey sandwiches through December.

According to, 12 to 14 pound turkeys are becoming more popular. They claim this smaller size trend is thanks to smaller families and growing concern over waste. Each year, an estimated 200 million pounds of turkey meat is thrown out over the Thanksgiving holiday.

“I like the leftovers.” (What kind of leftovers do you do?) “I do turkey soup and casserole .. or sandwiches,” says Sandy Williams, Minot Resident.
