Edward’s Buttered Turkey with Apple & Chestnut Stuffing
You just can’t beat the traditional Christmas turkey. Everyone’s perspective is different with regard the stuffing but I think it is fine to stuff the actual bird. However I want to remind you to ensure that the turkey is completely cold before you stuff the bird (unless you are cooking the turkey immediately).
Its the most wonderful time of the year but its also the most wonderful time of the week because our baking queen Catherine Leyden is in the kitchen this morning with a festive treat perfect for all the kids to get involved with. We're making gingerbread men!
