RECIPE OVERVIEW

All the family love Turkey so we normally have a turkey for Christmas dinner. Don’t forget to weigh the Turkey once it has been stuffed and allow the extra time for cooking.

Cooking time: 270 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 10 people

  • 6 kg SuperValu Quality Irish Fresh Whole Turkey
    approx
Sage Butter
  • 250 g SuperValu Butter
  • 3 tbsp SuperValu Fresh Sage
  • 0 - SuperValu Salt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. First, prepare the sage butter. Soften the butter in a bowl add the sage and mix.

  4. Add your stuffing of choice. Click here for Almond and Sage Stuffing recipe.
  5. Don't forget to weigh the turkey again with the stuffing enclosed.
  6. Put the Turkey onto a large roasting tray and place in the preheated oven.
  7. If you feel the turkey is browning too quickly you can cover down the turkey with some tin foil for the first two hours.
  8. Allocate 20 minutes per pound and then an additional 20-30 minutes in the oven. In total it should take about 4-5 hours.
  9. When a skewer is inserted into the meat nearest the bone (ie-the Leg) the juices should run completely clear.
  10. Allow the meat to rest when it comes out of the oven and carve as required.
