Been thinking about how I'll cook the turkey this Christmas and I'm a bit stumped for ideas.
I've only been hosting Christmas for a couple of years and not really sussed it yet. My gammon on the other hand I have perfected!
I'll be bunging it in the oven first thing in the morning but as for stuffing/flavouring etc I don't really know.
What do you all do to make it extra special?

Nothing. Just bacon and butter like the rest of us. Oven 20mins per lb.

Turkey doesn't need anything else.

Phil Vickery's Christmas turkey is how I do it. It basically steams the turkey so keeps it nice and moist. I use water instead of chicken stock and wine though and less veg but it depends how you like to do your gravy.

No stuffing here so can't help there!

I usually do nigellas brined turkey, but on my practice turkey no1 last week I tried her sausage bosomed turkey ( basically stuff sausage meat between the skin and breast to protect and add juiciness. It is gorgeous. Easily the best turkey I've ever made- equally as juicy as when brined, and IMO that juiciness lasts for days in the leftovers which is the measure of good turkey IMO. ( I know I've said juicy a lot but I don't like the alternative m wordshockwink)

Abd you don't need stuffing as the sausage meat makes up for it
