Cooking Advice

Cooking Guidelines

Conventional or Fan Oven
Starting Temperature 230°C/450°F/Gas 8
Roasting Temperature 190°C/375°F/Gas 5 or 170°C for fan ovens.

Turkey or Turkey Crown

Pre-heat the oven to the starting temperature (see above). Cook at this level for the first 30 minutes and then lower the oven to the roasting temperature (see above) Cook at this level for the rest of the cooking time. Total cooking time will be approximately 30 – 35 mins per Kg

Approximately 30 mins before the full cooking time remove foil and turn the bird over carefully using poultry forks so the Turkey bronzes.

To ensure your turkey is moist and succulent, avoid over-cookong your turkey. It will be ready when the juices run clear when tested with a fork. (plunge into the deepest part of the thigh or breast). Or when your Pop-Up® cooking timer has popped. The legs may cook faster so cover with foil if you wish. Cookingtable1

Breast Roast

Approximately half an hour before the full cooking time, remove foil so that the breast bronzes.

Please note that whilst every care is taken to remove bones from the turkey breast roasts, some may remain.

Aga Oven

For a 2-door Aga, follow the cooking times above using the top roasting oven only. For a 4-door Aga, follow the cooking times using the top roasting oven for the first 30 mins & then move to the baking oven for the remainder of the cooking.

These instructions should be used as a guideline only. Cooking times will vary according to the weight of turkey, methods used (e.g. not using foil will reduce cooking times) & your oven type.
