I don’t know about your house, but somehow we always buy a bigger turkey than we need for christmas! So here’s what I do with it: a perfect grilled cheese! Melty, juicy, and full of flavour. I’ll teach you how to get the perfect result 😉 Continue reading Turkey and gravy grilled cheese
In general I’m not a fan of stuffing. It bothers me that it’s all watery, and to be honest I don’t think it’s very hygenic to cook it inside the turkey because it will reach a safe temperature after the turkey does, so you either overcook the turkey or eat unsafe stuffing. I just don’t fancy it. Howeeeeever, I recently discovered that there are people who cook it apart, I think they call it “dressing”, and so I thought I would give it a try, and I LOVED IT! I ate it and thought “now we’re talking!” The sausage I bought is very neutral because we’re using the meat inside which goes amazing with the apples (Granny Smith and Pink Lady) and the toasted baguette.

In my house, if there’s something that can’t be missing on our Christmas dinner is turkey. If someone even dares to say maybe we could have chicken, pork, beef, duck, or tofu, he or she is going to endure the worse hatred looks on planet Earth. With time, my mom perfected her turkey method, and if I’m honest I do love her turkey. A closer version to hers in last year’s turkey recipe. The recipe I bring you today mixes my mom’s best practices mixed with flavours that I like (mainly herbs). The skin is golden and the meat extremely moist. I bring you allll the tips and tricks you need to know down in this post, so I recommend you give it a good read before starting. Continue reading Christmas turkey with gravy
I don’t know why but when Christmas season comes along, I can smell turkey EVERYWHERE, it’s like my body wants it so much it fools me into thinking they even sell it at Mc D. I know everyone is trying to go all modern and edgy and change the turkey for other proteins in their Christmas dinners but HELLO turkey is not replaceable, not in my table at least! If you want to cook turkey AND pork, fine by me, but there has to be some turkey, and have, of course, next to it its best friend or ever and ever till pigs fly: the gravy.
For this recipe I only used a small turkey crown (2kg approx.) because we were only four at dinner, but of course you can make this recipe for a 4, 6, 8kg turkey as you need. I’ll also tell you how cooking times vary between them so you have the best possible result.
