This simple cranberry glaze adds a delicious sweetness to roast turkey or chicken, ideal for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any other time of year!


  1. Mix together the cranberry sauce, maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the sauce is smooth, stirring frequently.
  2. Meanwhile, if using the bacon, microwave the bacon for 4 minutes on high.
  3. Place the microwaved bacon over the turkey or chicken in a roasting tray, then brush with the cranberry glaze. Roast the turkey or chicken until cooked through, brushing frequently with the glaze.
  4. Alternatively, if you're omitting the bacon, then liberally brush the cranberry glaze over the turkey, chicken or ham during roasting.
