Turkey Recipes

A turkey is a large bird in the grouse family, with juicy flesh and the potential to feed an army of people! Turkeys were originally called turkey fowl after they were mistaken for guinea fowl when they were first discovered on the American continent, but the name was soon shortened to plain and simple 'turkey'. One of the most popular Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes, turkey is fantastic when cooked in a similar way to chicken, too take a look at some of our recipes below for inspiration.

About Turkeys:

For centuries, Christmas dinner was a roast goose or the head of a boar. But in the 16th century, the turkey was introduced to England. Henry VIII was the first English king to enjoy turkey, and then Edward VII went on to make eating turkey at Christmas hugely fashionable.

We shouldn't forget though that turkey is a delicious, low-fat meat that can be eaten throughout the rest of the year and cooked in exactly the same way as chicken. It doesn't have to just be roasted and eaten at Christmas! Plus, it's very economical.

Take a look at some of the recipes above for inspiration there are plenty of roast turkey recipes that you could use next Christmas, but there's also a turkey curry recipe, a BBQ recipe and a few griddled turkey recipes.
