Roast Turkey with Apple Sage Stuffing

A Christmas party is never complete without roast turkey. We stuffed ours with aromatics and roasted it with herb butter spread under the skin, keeping it moist and full of flavour. Paired with the savoury yet sweet tasting stuffing made from Italian sausages, apples and sage.
Then with extra bits from the turkey, we made our own gravy, which is a good change from the usual packet ones!
Rather than eating out this Christmas, Why Not try roasting your own turkey for your family and friends!
We used Tecno’s Gas Hob and multifunction oven for this recipe. Find out more about them at http://tecno.com.sg/
