Ingredients
 

  • 5 kg turkey
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 900 g sausage meat
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 500 g breadcrumbs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 50 g hazel nuts
  • 175 g peeled chestnuts
  • 1 pinch fresh nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • Fry the finely chopped onions and garlic in about 2 tbsp of olive oil for two or three minutes, then add a touch of thyme.
  • Add the Sausage meat and cook just enough to start releasing the fat. Season with salt and pepper
  • Remove from heat and add eggs and mix in well.
  • Add breadcrumbs to make a stiff stuffing as they will soak up the fat from the sausage meat as it cooks.
  • Add roughly chopped hazelnuts and chestnuts.
  • Add a generous helping of freshly grated nutmeg.
  • Stuff the brined turkey.
  • Put on an INDIRECT heat in the BBQ at 250C for about 5½ to 6 hours and baste every hour or so.
