This week, Kayte chose the theme of It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas ... for Eating with Ellie. Christmas is in three days' time, so it is an appropriate theme. That said, I made my dish about a month ago.
I chose Lemon-Garlic Roasted Turkey with Rosemary Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli from So Easy.
When I went to buy turkey breast from a specialist poultry shop for this recipe, I was told I had to order it. What???? Why bother having a specialist poultry shop when you don't even sell turkey except on special order. This is the same shop where the staff didn't know what a spatchcock was, nor did they sell them. It will not surprise you that I have never bought anything there - I can buy chicken at Woolies.
I ended up buying two turkey legs instead from Woolies, which just happened to be on special that week. Bonus!! Sure, I had to separate the meat from the large amount of sinew in the finished product, but that was pretty easy to do, and I got a large amount of tasty meat.
For a quick and easy roast turkey dinner, I totally recommend this recipe - so delicious, and the sides are good too.
