I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for something new to cook the family for dinner.
There’s only so many times in your life that you can cook Spaghetti Bolognese! The problems I face though, I’m sure are familiar to you. I want it to be delicious but still nutritious. I want it to be a bit different and gourmet but still easy. Plus I want the whole family to love it.
I can hear you muttering from here “Tell her she’s dreamin’!” but I’m not.
Enter my dream come true.
The Steggles Turkey Thigh Roast
I had about 15 minutes to get dinner organised. I did it in 10.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and pop those suckers out of the pack and into the roasting tray.
Add any root vegetables you like. I kept it rustic with some carrots, onion and whole garlic gloves. Didn’t even bother to peel anything.
Cover with alfoil and cook for 10 minutes per 100gm of meat. I had it in the oven for about an hour before I took it out, basted the roasts and put it back in, without the cover for about another 15 minutes.
And then it was done.
I served it up with some left over rice pilaf and a salad to the roar of the crowd!
Delicious – The meat was so tender and juicy! I had to stop my husband from eating it straight off the chopping board before it even got to the table.
Nutritious – Turkey is high in protein and in vitamin B12, which is needed for growth and development, a healthy nervous system and normal blood formation. It’s also a source of selenium, a mineral needed to protect cells in the body from damage.
Different – We usually eat chicken so yes, it’s different!
Gourmet – I love that those little roasts look so fancy!
Easy – Seriously. How much easier could it be??
Next time I cook this Turkey Dinner [and there WILL be a next time] I’ll add potatoes and maybe a gravy and/or cranberry sauce and serve with steamed greens.
