Traditional Christmas Turkey


A classic roast turkey recipe, simply stuffed with onion, carrots, celery, sage, and thyme and roasted to perfection. This turkey recipe is super easy, especially if you’re not up for making stuffing, it’s a no-fuss, fool-proof turkey. This Christmas we’re all about the sides, and these Brussel sprouts may just be your new favourite festive side! Butter and bacon make these Brussels moreish! PS: Save the juices! After the turkey is finished cooking there will be juice and browned cooked bits at the bottom of your roasting pan. You can reserve all of it for a delicious gravy.
