Cranberry, Pancetta and Sourdough Topping for Turkey Roast

Cranberry, Pancetta and Sourdough Topping for Turkey Roast

Cranberry, Pancetta and Sourdough Topping for Turkey Roast

This simple sweet and savoury topping for a boneless turkey roast, not only looks impressive, but boosts the flavour of the stuffing. Best of all, it can be finished just before serving.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook Time: 1.5 hours
Serves: 6-8

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C. 

Combine the orange zest and juice with the sugar in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook until the sugar dissolves.

Add the cranberries (they don’t need to be defrosted) and cook for 3-4 mins until beginning to burst. Set aside to cool before using (this can be made a few days ahead). 

Brush the turkey roast with the butter and cook according to the packet instructions, basting with the pan juices every half hour. Once done, rest in a warm spot.

While the turkey rests, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently fry the pancetta until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels to cool then roughly chop. In the same pan, add the bread cubes and cook until golden. Set aside. 

Just before serving, mix the bread and pancetta with the cranberries and enough of the syrup to moisten. Serve some on top of the turkey roast and the rest alongside.
