The whole Turkey bird is perfect for those lunches where family and friends get together for the festive season. It’s a bit of a showstopper and looks amazing presented on your Christmas dinner table. If you’re a fan of turkey leftovers, then a whole bird is best for you. Buy it a little bit bigger than you need to guarantee a Boxing Day leftover feast!Turkey Crowns are fast becoming one of the most popular ways to enjoy your Christmas Turkey and are perfect for small Christmas lunches. The turkey crown is basically the top part of the bird minus the legs and wings put simply – just the white meat of the turkey. This is not a boneless piece of meat however, as in order to retain the natural look of a roasted turkey, the bones are kept in to hold the shape of the breast in place.Turkey joints are really quick to cook and perfect for intimate lunches and with no bones there is absolutely no waste. Bernard Matthews Golden Norfolk Turkey Joint is designed to be cooked straight from the freezer for convenience and these delicious joints are already basted for succulence, easy to carve and taste bootiful!
