This golden turkey centrepiece will not fail to impress on Christmas day. Not only is the meat succulent and tender, but the pistachio stuffing lends an earthy, nutty flavour and the citrus butter brings a velvety zing. Get ahead with your Christmas dinner by making and freezing the stuffing a month in advance – you can even butter and stuff the turkey the day before and keep chilled until needed. See method
of the reference intake
*If cooking for vegetarian guests, roll the stuffing into balls and cook in a separate roasting tin for 45 minutes.
Freezing and defrosting guidelinesThe pistachio stuffing can be frozen – make according to the recipe and allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 1 month. Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before continuing with the recipe.
