Turkey with orange and cranberries

1:54 pm Thanksgiving turkey

The Thanksgiving Day is not far off, that’s why I’d like to share with you a couple of other delicious turkey recipes.

5,4 kilo turkey with unsides
¾ cup soft butter
1 onion, sliced
1 orange, cut in two
6 twigs thyme

for the sauce:
½ pound fresh or frozen cranberry
6 bacon steaks, grilled and cut into small pieces
3 oranges, segments taken apart and peel grated
2 tbsp honey

1. Preheat oven to 190 C/350 F. Save insides for the sauce. Put turkey in a deep pan, butter it and spice with salt and pepper to taste. Put onion, orange and half thyme inside. Cook 1 hour until turkey gets a brown crust, cover with foil and cook for 3 hours more, seasoning with turkey juice every 30 minutes.
2. Combine all sauce ingredients with thyme. Take out turkey and cover with sauce. Cover turkey with foil and bake 10 minutes, then remove foil and cook for 10 minutes more.
