Christmas comes just once a year and it seems to be starting earlier and earlier, and this year is no different. So why not get prepared with a little help from your favourite Local Butcher!
We get it. You want to get your Christmas day feast just right; the fluffy Roast Potatoes, Tremendous Trimmings and Glorious Gravy (Hint: Use our Homemade Gravy & pass it off as your own!) plus, the centrepiece that everyone looks forward to... the perfect Christmas Turkey Crown.
If you are looking for a great value Turkey to feed your family this Christmas we have a selection of Boneless Turkey Crowns this year. Here are our Top Turkey Tips for cooking up that juicy, tasty Turkey to be the showstopper of your Christmas dinner this year.
Tip 1 – choose the best quality Turkey Crown
Turnbull's British Turkey Crowns are expertly de-boned by our Skilled Team of Butchers to provide pure Turkey Breast Meat. Turkey Crowns are great if you want all meat and less waste.
Tip 2 – Buy the right size Crown
Every year we are faced with the same puzzle: wanting to have enough turkey to feed the hungry diners at the table and also having enough for delicious leftovers the next day, but not wanting to buy too much either. Here's our Handy Guide to help you choose the right Turkey Crown:
- Small (1.5kg+) Feeds: 3-4
- Medium (2.2kg+) Feed: 6-8
- Large (4.5kg+) Feeds: 12+
Tip 3 – How to cook your Turkey Crown
Our cooking guide can also be found on our website here. So, no more frantically leafing through the pages of recipes books amidst the other chaos in the kitchen! Make sure you have some of Streaky Bacon on hand to cover the bird to maximise the flavour!
Tip 4 – Think about those tasty leftovers
So, the Christmas dinner has been a huge success, the turkey was delicious and juicy, your guests are full of praise and no one went home hungry. But then Boxing Day morning arrives and the leftover turkey can be enjoyed once again.
Everyone has their own favourite leftover traditions, perhaps a turkey curry or a turkey soup, or just simply cold cuts and chutney in a scrumptious turkey sandwich. But perhaps you fancy trying something different this year? Browse Butcher Dan's Recipe Vault
