Cooking Instructions


Instructions: Temperature: 180°C, Fan 150°C, Gas 4
Time: For calculated cooking time see label on front of pack
Place the turkey in a roasting tin and rub the skin with oil or butter (optional). Cook, uncovered, in the centre of a pre-heated oven. After 1 hour, cover loosely with kitchen foil, ensuring foil is tucked under the edges of the roasting tin to keep the moisture in. Return to oven and continue cooking. Baste turkey occasionally during cooking process (typically 2 – 4 times depending on the size of the turkey). Poultry is cooked if the juices run clear when the deepest part of the turkey breast and leg are pierced with a thin skewer. If juices are pink, continue cooking for a further 15 minutes and retest. Repeat every 15 minutes until juices run clear. After cooking time, cover with kitchen foil and allow to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes before carving.

Smells of rotten flesh

1 stars

The whole tray of food smelt rotten when emptying the crate...we realised the smell was coming from the turkey packaging, its like rotting flesh...we cut open the plastic and removed the neck and giblets, cut off all the rotten grey skin and put in outside rubbish bin...now thoroughly washed the reamaining turkey and wrapped in greaseproof paper and had to put it in a separate cool box with freezer ice packs until tomorrow as it would stink the whole of my fridge contents out...I have just come back into the kitchen and the air still smells of rotten flesh....if the smell is still on the turkey in the morning then we will have to throw it out....and contact Tesco for a full refund...what a disappointment...
