Italian-style Turkey crown with roast garlic and pancetta, and lemon and ciabatta stuffing. With no bones to contend with, a turkey crown is easier to carve than a whole bird and the pancetta slices keep the roasted meat succulent
Tom Kerridge makes a tasty stuffing mix cooked in bacon for a turkey Christmas dinner on Tom Kerridge Cooks Christmas. For the stuffing mix: 800g sausage meat, 400g onion, finely chopped and fried until translucent, cooled, 100g cooked and peeled chestnuts, finely chopped, 160g fresh breadcrumbs, 1 bunch fresh sage, chopped, 2 tsp salt, 3 tsp cracked black pepper, 100g/3½oz dried cranberries, 1 tbsp juniper berries, crushed and 20 rashers smoked streaky bacon.

One of the biggest challenges when cooking a turkey is the legs take longer than the breasts. The breasts dry out in the oven while you're waiting for the legs to cook. I like to push stuffing between the turkey's skin and breasts, increasing the thickness of the breasts so they take the same time to cook as the legs. The result? Juicy turkey all round!
