  • 4kg free-range turkey
  • 3 onions, chopped in quarters
  • 5 carrots, chopped
  • 2-3 apples, chopped in quarters
  • Herbs of your choice e.g. springs of rosemary, thyme
  • 50g of unsalted butter


  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 165 degrees.
  • Step 2: Take the neck and giblets out of the cavity. Remove the liver and save your giblets to make the gravy.
  • Step 3: Grab your turkey and dry this with some paper towels, then season inside and out with salt and pepper.
  • Step 4: Next, fill up your turkey with some aromatics like some chopped onion, carrots, apples and your favourite herbs e.g. sprigs of rosemary, thyme, then place your turkey breast-side up in a roasting pan. Brush with some melted butter (preferable unsalted).
  • Step 5: Grab some foil and wrap it over the roast for 2 hours 45 mins for a 4kg turkey. Take your turkey out after 2 hours and baste your turkey with more melted butter and roast it for another 45 mins until golden brown. Let it rest while you make the gravy.
