Turkey legs or breast

Hello , we are celebrating Thanksgiving here in Canada this weekend . I didn't buy a whole turkey because leftovers here are not popular , so I bought some Turkey legs but was wondering which taste better the leg or the breast because maybe I will buy a small breast also .
Thank you

I'm a breast girl, but I know others prefer dark meat. It's personal preference.

You can use the leftovers (bones and skin) to make some nice stock.

The websites I've seen recommend around a pound per person, so you should be close.

Agreed. Should be really close, especially with a few side dishes. Happy Thanksgiving!

"Close to 4 to 5"? That's a pound difference.

Turkey leftovers are not popular?!? Seriously?!? That does not compute. Really. I don't understand what that means

I really prefer turkey thigh..drumsticks don't have much meat on the bone. If I were you, I'd make another grocery run for more turkey. As a hostess my biggest nightmare would be to not have enough turkey.

On which tastes better, depends on the eater.
Go buy a small breast.
