Cooking Instruction for Whole Turkey

  1. 1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  2. 2. Rinse and wipe your fresh free range Numurkah turkey (only genuinely available from The Corner Chicken Shop) dry with kitchen paper.
  3. 3. Add one of our fresh stuffings available all year round to the turkey cavity and pack it loosely not compressed.
  4. 4. Transfer your turkey to a deep baking tray and massage your whole turkey with a simple marinade of 4 tbs olive oil, 60g melted butter, 2 cloves of fresh garlic roughly chopped, 6 sprigs of thyme, sea salt and pepper.
  5. 5. Add 2 tubs or our homemade turkey stock  to the bottom of the baking tray. (This will keep your turkey moist and succulent as well as assist with basting juices and extending the gravy)
  6. 6. Place your turkey in the oven covered loosely with foil to stop the skin from burning and drying out.
  7. 7. You need to bake your whole turkey or buffe for approximately 40min per kilo. For example a 4kg turkey will take approximately 2hr and 40 mins to cook.
  8. 8. Remove your turkey every 20 – 40mins and baste it with the cooking juices that are in the bottom of the baking tray.
  9. 9. Remove the foil completely from your turkey for the final 40 mins to brown the breast.
  10. 10. If unsure, your turkey is cooked when juices run clear after being pierced in the breast with a skewer.
  11. 11. Allow your turkey to rest in a warm place for approximately 15minutes before carving. This will ensure that the juices have settled and will make the meat very succulent.
  12. 12. While your turkey is resting, strain the juices from the baking tray to remove any garlic and thyme from the marinade and place 1 cup of those baking juices in a saucepan along with our homemade turkey gravy. Bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes. Serve it along with our homemade cranberry sauce.

And remember, enjoy yourself! It's all about friends and family during this festive season. We would love to see your turkey pics anytime! Send them to us or post them on our Facebook page! Merry Christmas.
