It used to be that cooking a moist & succulent turkey required a days brining and constant basting during cooking. But, with Tegel's Tender Basted Turkey both of these processes have already been done for you, and all you have to do is pop it into the oven to cook as one would a Roast Chicken.
|Thaw frozen Turkey in the refrigerator for 2-3 days before cooking.|
|Preheat the oven to 160oC and place the turkey breast side up in an oven pan. Do not fan bake as this will unnecessarily dry out the skin and surface meat before the deeper meat is fully cooked.|
|Roast the turkey according to the time stated on the back of the packet or by using the following table as a guide:|
|Let the turkey stand covered for 15 minutes before serving in order to allow the juices to redistribute through the turkey.|
Tip: Cover the breast and upper thigh with bacon or tin foil to prevent the skin from charring.
Cooking Test: Insert a skewer into the thickest part of the meat, when the juices run clear the bird is cooked.
