Served with a creamy dressing rather than the traditional gravy, these pancetta-wrapped turkey breasts make a sophisticated festive dinner for two that’s ready in under an hour.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Mix the butter with the thyme and 1 tsp tarragon, rub over the turkey breast and wrap with pancetta.
  2. Put the potatoes, shallots, lemon and oil in a large roasting tin. Nestle in the turkey, pour over the wine, cover with foil and roast for 30 mins, then pour off and reserve the excess juice.
  3. Meanwhile, add the sprouts to a pan of boiling water and cook for 2 mins. Drain and run under cold water. Add to the turkey tray after the initial cooking time and roast for 15 mins.
  4. In a pan, warm through the mustard, crème fraîche and remaining 1 tsp tarragon with the reserved juices. To serve, drizzle over the sliced turkey and roasted vegetables.
