    The hazelnut and fig stuffing make the roast turkey so delicious.


    1. 1.To make the hazelnut & fig stuffing, fry the onions until soft and tender. Add in the garlic and then take out to cool.
    2. 2. Lightly toast the bread and crumble into breadcrumbs - add to the onions and garlic mix and then add in the figs, parsley, lemon and hazlenut

    3. 7.Preheat oven to 180C.

    4. 8.To prepare the Turkey first remove excess fat, giblets and neck from the turkey cavity. Wipe inside and out with paper towel.
    5. 9.Loosely fill the Turkey with the stuffing and to keep it from falling out tie the legs together.
    6. 10. Put lemon slices and some knobs of butter together with the rosemary under the skin of the Turkey - keeps the meat moist.

    7. 10.Add a cup of water to a large roasting pan. Place the turkey, breast-side up, on a wire rack in the pan and cover the pan with foil. Roast, basting with remaining butter, every 30 minutes, for 2 1/2 hours.
    8. 11.Remove foil for the last 45 mins of roasting and then


    Can prepare the stuffing the day before Once cooked leave the Turkey to rest for 10 - 15 mins before carving.

        Ok salt is now included in the method - sorry missed that out by mistake - just stir it into the sauce while gently heating

      Basil, Lemon Turkey Crown

      by JWMCCABE

      by JWMCCABEViewed 1541 times


        This years Turkey is an 11 kilo monster crown


        1. Very Large ''Fresh'' Turkey crown, rub sea salt and paprika on the skin.

        2. Pierce the layer between the skin and the body, so the skin is separated from the body but not broken. Place aside. In a separate dish mix softened butter, basil and the zest of one whole lemon.

        3. Mix ingredients until fully combined.

        4. Spread butter mixture underneath the skin , either with your hands, gently rub all over the body of the crown. Place in preheated 220 oven for 3.5 to 4 hours( depending upon how crispy you prefer!)

          Hi JWMCCABE – thanks for your full explanation I get it know. I can see why the crown may be more expensive, basically the best bits and must be extra work removing the legs and wings etc. Sounds great though and definitely will be on the menu this Xmas – wishing you well over the Festive Season - Imogen

          The turkey crown is the top part of the turkey. Some people refer to the crown as the turkey with just the legs removed, but most often the underparts have been cut away and it comes with the bone (not boneless). Turkey crowns are smaller, much quicker to cook, and easier to carve (no worrying about appendages). One downside to turkey crowns is that they can be far more expensive than buying a whole turkey.

        Roast Turkey

          1. 1. Preheat the oven to Gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Rub the turkey all over with butter and sprinkle with sea salt. Place the lemon pieces and rosemary inside the cavity.

          2. 2. Place the onion halves in a large roasting tin and sit the turkey on top. Cover with kitchen foil, tucking under the tin to create a foil tent. Roast according to the instructions, but remove the foil 30 minutes before the end until golden.

          3. To test the meat is cooked, pierce the fattest part of the thigh with a skewer. The juices should run clear. Rest the turkey, covered loosely with foil, for at least 30 minutes

          4. Cook's tip
          5. Leftover meat will stay juicer if you keep it on the bone. Wrap the turkey carcass in a clean damp tea towel and cling film then store in the fridge.

          6. For the stuffing

          7. 1. Preheat the oven to Gas 5, 190°C, 375°F.

          8. 2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onions for 4 to 5 minutes until transparent. Place in a bowl and add all the remaining ingredients. Mix and season well.

          9. 3. Place in a shallow, ovenproof dish and cook for 35-40 minutes until golden.

          10. For the gravy
          11. Remove the cooked bird from the oven.

          12. 4. Set bird aside to rest, skim excess fat off the juices in the roasting pan, then add the onions and cumin seeds.

          13. 5. Fry gently until the onions are tender. Add the cocoa powder, honey and enough flour to absorb the juices and remaining fat. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

          14. 6. Gradually stir in the wine and stock and bring to a simmer. Adjust seasoning to taste, cook gravy for 5-10 minutes, then serve with the turkey.

          15. Top Tip:
          16. It may sound unusual, but adding cocoa to the chunky onion gravy really works, offsetting the tangy wine.

          17. NB - Please refer to individual recipe pages for Novelli Onion and Cocoa gravy and Macadamia, cranberry and orange stuffing general daily allowance's.
