And now, the turkey...

..of course cause there is no Thanksgiving with no turkey. I am kidding, that recipe is simple with a good organisation, no problem. I know that for this year it's to late but you will be on time for next year or for christmas.

For 6-8 people

The turkey recipe :
2 turkey thighs
6-8 sweet potatoes
30 brussels sprouts
FM salt, pepper, olive oil
1/2 qt chicken stock

Peel and cube the sweet potatoes (1/2in side)
Clean the Brussels sprouts. Cut them in half.
In a bowl, mix the vegetables together, add the seasoning and some olive oil. Mix it and pour in a roast pan.

Now take off the bones from the turkey thighs and butterfly them. Add some seasoning and stuff them with the stuffing you prepare the day before. Roll them and place them on the vegetables, drizzle some olive oil. Add half of the chicken stock and place in the oven that you preheat at 400oF for 30 minutes.
After that you have to check the point of cook of the vegetables with a paring knife. Mix them and if the meat has a pretty good coloration, use some foil to cover it. If the meat is lighty colored, keep cooking uncovered. At that point you may need to add some chicken stock.
from now on, check every 15 minutes.

When it is ready to your taste...a table!

Advices :
- You can use a string to rool up the turkey but if you roll it up well, it will be easiest without it. Trust me.
- you could warm up your stock, thus, you will not take the risk to brake your pan with the difference of the temperature and it will cook faster.
- The turkey should not be dry cause the flavor will be gone. So touch the meat with a finger and as a chicken when the meat is hard, it should be good.

If you are looking at the picture, you will tell me "where are the meat rolls?". I know, I know, but for the picture I wanted to do it pretty to make you hungry. Usually you bring the roasted pan in the middle of the table and you serve like that. Please enjoy and have a good time!!
