4 streaky bacon rashers, rinded and chopped

50 g (2 oz) raisins
40 g (1 1/2 oz) long-grain rice, cooked

method

1. First make the stuffing. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and garlic until softened.

2. Add the bacon and fry until it is golden brown.

3. Pour off the fat and stir in the pepper, tomatoes, raisins, rice, salt, pepper and parsley.

4. Bind together with the egg and cool.

5. Stuff the neck end of the turkey, putting any extra stuffing into the body cavity.

6. Truss and weigh the bird, then place it on a large piece of buttered foil.

7. Rub the bird all over with the butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

8. Wrap the foil around the bird loosely and place in a roasting tin.

9. Roast in a preheated hot oven 230°C (450°F) Gas Mark 8 for 3 1/4 hours or until the turkey is cooked through.

10. Fold back the foil for the last 20 minutes cooking to brown the breast.

11. If you prefer, cook by the slow roasting method in a preheated moderate oven 160°C (325°F) Gas Mark 3 for 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 hours.

12. There is no need to wrap the bird in foil.

13. Serve with roast potatoes, chipolata sausages, bacon rolls, gravy made from giblet stock, bread sauce and cranberry sauce or jelly.
