Ingredients

  • 2 kg rolled turkey thigh roast. (for bigger or smaller I have added cooking alterations to the notes)
  • 8 rashers of bacon
  • salt and pepper
  • knob of butter
  • boiling water

Instructions

  • Take the joint out of the fridge 20 minutes before you want to start cooking.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan assisted 200°C/430ºF.
  • Put the turkey joint, skin-side up, into a roasting tin and pour 2 cups of boiling water around it
  • Spread the butter over the skin and season (Unless you have a brined/marinated roll).
  • Cover the roasting tin with foil, ensuring it is well sealed around the edges.
  • Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Reduce the temperate by 20º (so down to 200°C/fan assisted 180°C/ 410ºF) and roast for a further 50 minutes.
  • After this time remove the foil, drape the bacon over the roast and cook for a further 20 minutes.

Notes

Weigh your turkey joint and then cook for 15 minutes per 450g/1lb, plus an extra 25 minutes.
