Ingredients

  • Turkey
    1
  • Streaky bacon
    2 packets
  • different kinds of stuffing
    2 packets
  • Chipolata
    1
  • Water
    1 splash
  • Cocktail sticks
    1 packet

Method

  1. Get your turkey and take all the giblets and neck out from inside.

  2. Find a roasting pan big enough for your turkey.

  3. Add chipolata sausages to the pan (optional), these cook in the fat and so are soft and don’t crisp up, so its up to you, my husband loves them but they are not for me.

  4. Next add your turkey to the pan.

  5. Fill each end with a different type of stuffing and use a cocktail stick to seal the back end.

  6. Next cover the legs and skin with streaky bacon and salt and pepper the bird.

  7. Finally put tin foil over each leg, add a splash of water, cover the dish with a lid or tin foil and put it in the oven.

  8. You can prep the turkey a few days in advance and just don’t add the splash of water until you are going to cook it. Put it in the fridge once prepped.

  9. Cooking instructions
