1 tsp wholegrain mustard


3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Salt and pepper, to taste


300g Celeriac purée


Fresh cream

 

 

1 Fry off the black pudding in a small frying pan until crisp on both sides. Set aside and keep warm.
2 Season the scallops on both sides with salt and pepper.
3 Fry on the pan with a little olive oil for 50 seconds on each side until lightly golden. Set aside and keep warm.
4 Deglaze the pan used for the scallops with the red wine vinegar. Add in the mustard and olive oil and warm through before seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5 Toss the baby leaves in a bowl with a little of the dressing. Warm up the celeriac purée in a small pot, add a dash of cream and season with salt and pepper.

Roast turkey with bacon stuffing

 

 

1 turkey (6-8kg)

400g streaky bacon, roughly chopped

1 large onion, roughly chopped

750g fresh breadcrumbs

200g butter

Olive oil

Salt and black pepper

 

 

1 Melt the butter with the oil in a large pan.
2 Add the onions and bacon and cook until soft and golden brown.
3 Add the breadcrumbs, mix thoroughly and add salt and pepper.
4 Loosely pack the stuffing in the turkey cavity.
5 Cover the turkey with foil and place it breast up on a roasting tray
6 Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180˚C, basting every hour for 5-6.5 hours (75˚C core temperature).
7 Remove the foil for the last half hour to brown the skin. Juices should run clear when the thickest part of the thigh and breast are pierced with a clean fork.
8 Once cooked, allow the turkey to rest for half an hour before carving. Cover the turkey with foil during this period.
