British turkey

2:13 pm Thanksgiving turkey

This is a classic turkey recipe that perfectly suits not only the Thanksgiving dinner, but can be also cooked for Christmas. The garnish for this recipe could be orange halves (flesh removed) filled with fried mushrooms and parsley.

5,5 kilo turkey
1 onion, sliced
1 tbsp juniper berries

for the sauce:
6 thin bacon steaks
1 small onion, finely diced
2 ½ oz mushrooms, sliced
2 ½ oz chestnuts, shelled and sliced
3 clove garlic, sliced
2/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp orange peel, grated
1 tbsp juniper berries
2 sprigs celery

1. Preheat oven to 190 C/350 F. Sauté bacon, onion, celery and garlic for 5 minutes, add mushrooms and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from fire, put the rest sauce ingredients and stir.
2. Stuff turkey. (Lay the excessive filling around turkey for the last 20 minutes of cooking). Put juniper berries and onion inside and bake turkey.
3. Remove from oven and cover with foil.
