And brandy butter. I assumed Steve was completely mad and that no one else would dream of cooking that much. But my curiosity was piqued. I began asking friends what they put on their Christmas table.

And it turns out that most people are trying to cook over 15 different things. No wonder tempers become frayed. Every restaurateur knows — the shorter the menu, the better the food. I can make all this the day before, except the turkey, sprouts, gravy and potatoes — and those can be prepped in advance. Then check it fits in the oven.
For something fancy, try mixing g of softened butter with a pinch of smoked paprika, chopped tarragon and some garlic paste. Rub under the skin of the breast. Smear any left over on to the turkey breast.
In the main cavity, add some tarragon, a whole orange and a peeled onion. You can do this the night before if you have a cool room in the house. Sit the turkey on some chunks of onion, carrot, swede and celery, then add the giblets and a bottle of dry vermouth to the roasting tray to flavour the gravy see below. A rough rule is to cook the bird for 40 minutes per kilogramme, including the 45 minutes at the higher temperature. If the bird is colouring too much, cover it with foil. Alternatively, probe the thigh with a meat thermometer.

It will stay warm for over an hour, so aim to have it done well in advance. Strain it all into a large frying pan. Add roughly three-quarters of the thyme to the stuffing mixture and sprinkle the lemon zest on top. Add the sausagemeat and season with a little salt and lots of black pepper. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly with your hands, leaving it fairly chunky. Spread loosely over the dish and set aside. Take the turkey crown carefully off the tray and place directly on top of the stuffing.
Place in the oven and roast the turkey and stuffing for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for a further 15 minutes, or until the turkey is fully cooked and the juices run clear when the thickest part is pierced with a skewer. Meanwhile, for the roast potatoes, put the potatoes in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole and cover with cold water. Place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 3 minutes.
Drain the potatoes in a large colander and return to the saucepan.

Shake vigorously to knock the potatoes about and scuff up the surface — this will make them much crisper when they roast. Pour the oil over and toss together well. Scatter in a single layer onto a baking tray and roast for an hour, or until the potatoes are golden, crisp and tender in the centre. Meanwhile, for the pigs in blankets, tuck a small sprig of rosemary under the bacon on each sausage. Place on a lightly oiled baking tray with the potatoes and drizzle with the honey. Roast for 15—20 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.
Remove the turkey from the oven, cover loosely with kitchen foil and a couple of dry tea towels and leave to rest for 15 minutes. For the bread sauce if making , put the bread sauce mix in a non-stick saucepan and stir in roughly a quarter of the milk. Mix until well combined, then add the remaining milk and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 3—4 minutes, stirring regularly, until thick and smooth, then add the cream and butter and cook for 1—2 minutes more.
Pour into a warmed dish, sprinkle with a little nutmeg, and keep warm until ready to serve. For the carrots, put the carrots in a microwave-proof serving dish and pour over the orange juice, dot with butter, sprinkle with parsley, add sugar and season with a little salt and lots of black pepper. Cover with cling film or a plate and cook on HIGH for 8 minutes, or until just tender, stirring halfway through cooking.
Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly until the sprouts are tender and the liquid has evaporated. Meanwhile, for the gravy, put the gravy, bacon, port, cranberry sauce and dried sage, if using, in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.ifadiworer.gq
