    The Flying Chef's Note:

    made 2 roast ducks, roast leg of lamb and a roast turkey for Christmas dinner. I have posted a recipe already for roast lamb so I thought I would post one for turkey and one for duck. I know you probably can't think of food now, but I thought I would post these for next year or other special occasions throughout the year. I only bought a 2.5kg turkey as I was doing other meats, so you will have to adjust cooking times if roasting a bigger bird. I stuffed mine with a fois gras fig stuffing, MMmmm, it was delicious but you can stuff yours with your favourite stuffing.

      What a fabulous meal! This was my first ever attempt at cooking turkey & it came out perfectly. I followed the recipe, but my oven runs quite hot, so it was cooked quicker than I expected. This worked in perfectly with the rest of our meal, so not a big deal. The gravy was just wonderful, so don't leave it out. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #15. Thanks Flying Chef for sharing this keeper.
