2 H


Apple and Veal Stuffing

Lemon Stuffing

Stuffed Roasted Turkey

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350°).
  2. Stuff a 4.8 kg (8 lbs) turkey with the chosen stuffing and place it on the rack of a roasting pan. Pour about 250 ml (1 cup) of water at the bottom of the pan.
  3. Bake for about 2 hours and 30 minutes or until the juices run clear. Add water, as needed.
  4. Brush the turkey with melted butter 5 minutes before the end of cooking. Cover with foil if it browns too quickly. The turkey is cooked when a meat thermometer reads 82 °C (180 °F) in the thickest part of the thigh, without touching the bone. The stuffing temperature should be 75 °C (160 °F). Don’t wait for the thighbone to detach for the turkey. At this stage of cooking the turkey is overcooked.
  5. Remove the turkey from the oven, place on a warm serving platter and cover with aluminum foil. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving. Adjust the seasoning of the cooking juices and serve in a gravy boat.
