Recipe tips
  • Different sized turkeys will require different cooking times; cooking time will be approximately 30-35 mins per kg.
  • Your turkey should be moist and succulent. It's ready when the juices run clear. Test by plunging a fork into the deepest part of the thigh or breast. If using a thermometer, the internal cooked temperature will be 165°F/74°C.
  • To make a bacon weave: simply interweave the rashers of bacon on a piece of cling film, once you have a neat weave carefully place it on the turkey breast and remove the film.
