Here in Australia, whole turkeys aren’t really commonplace on our Christmas table.
I know that a lot of my fellow Aussies prefer seafood for their festive lunch but I like to stay a bit more traditional.
We have this rolled turkey breast every year, and I usually make a second one to either pop in the freezer for easy dinners over the holiday, or to take to my Mum’s for our traditional Boxing Day Leftovers Lunch.
Now, originally this turkey was stuffed with a delicious Jamie Oliver stuffing recipe but our tastes have changed in the last decade or so that I’ve been making it and these days I stuff it with whatever takes my fancy at the time.
This year I had a jar of Beetroot and Pepperberry Relish that I had made so I combined that with the fresh green of spinach and the yummy crunch of pistachios.
The beetroot tastes amazing but is probably a bit messier looking than I would like.
Cranberry sauce would be divine if that fits your eating preferences.
Basically, you can stuff your turkey with whatever you like and the process will remain the same.
Just remember to adjust your nutritional calculations accordingly.
Merry Christmas, all of you.
