If you are looking for an amazing holiday dinner this year or any other time you just simply want to amaze your friends and family, then look no further.

Gordon Ramsay Ultimate Turkey Recipe
Gordon Ramsay Ultimate Turkey Recipe
Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 2 hours 30 min
Ready in: 3 hours
Yields: 8-10

Roast Turkey With Lemon Parsley and Garlic

  • 1 free-range turkey about 5-5.5kg
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 onions peeled and halved
  • 1 lemon halved
  • 1 head of garlic halved
  • 6 bay leaves
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • 8 strips of smoked bacon
  • 375 g butter at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • finely grated zest and juice of 2 small lemons
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and crushed
  • small bunch of chopped flat leaf parsley leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / 425 F. Meanwhile, prepare the herb butter. Put the butter into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and mix well. Add the lemon zest and juice, crushed garlic and chopped parsley. Mix well to combine.
  2. Remove the giblets from the turkey cavity. Season the cavity well with salt and pepper, then stuff with the onions, lemon, garlic halves and 2 bay leaves.
  3. With your hands, loosen the skin on the breast from both ends of the bird so that you will be able to stuff the flavoured butter underneath it, making sure you keep the skin intact. Repeat with the skin on the legs - from the lower side of the breast feel your way under the skin and out towards the leg, loosening the gap.
  4. Stuff half the butter mix into the opened spaces under the skin. From the outside of the skin, gently massage the butter around the breasts so that the meat is evenly covered. Finally, insert the rest of the bay leaves under the skin of the breasts.
  5. Place the bird in a large roasting tray, breast side up. Spread the rest of the butter all over the skin. Season well with salt and pepper, then drizzle with a little olive oil. (If preparing a day ahead, cover the turkey with foil and refrigerate at this stage.)
  6. Roast the turkey in the hot oven for 10-15 minutes. Take the tray out of the oven, baste the bird with the pan juices and lay the bacon strips over the breast to keep it moist. Baste again. Lower the setting to 180 C / 350 F and cook for about 2½ hours (calculating at 30 minutes per kg), basting occasionally.
  7. To test whether your turkey is cooked, insert a skewer into the thickest part of the leg and check that the juices are running clear, rather than pink. As oven temperatures and turkey shapes and sizes vary, it is crucial to check your turkey about 30 minutes before the calculated roasting time. If the juices are pink, roast for another 15 minutes and check again. Repeat as necessary until the turkey is cooked.
  8. Transfer the turkey to a warmed platter and remove the parson's nose, wings and tips of the drumsticks; reserve these for the gravy. Leave the turkey to rest in a warm place for at least 45 minutes; make the gravy in the meantime. Remove the bay leaves from under the skin before carving. Serve the turkey with the piping hot gravy, stuffing and accompaniments.

Gordon Ramsay chocolate mint truffles
Gordon Ramsay chocolate mint truffles

Chocolate Mint Truffles

  • 250 ml double cream
  • 250 ml single cream
  • small bunch of mint
  • 500 g dark chocolate
  • 130 g diced butter
  • 130 g clear honey
  • cocoa powder
  • crushed chocolate flake bars
  • crushed amaretti biscuits
  • finely chopped nuts
  • any other coating you wish to toss the truffles in

Instructions

  1. Pour both creams into a medium saucepan. Lightly bash the mint sprigs with a wooden spoon to release their fragrance and add to the pan. Heat very gently for 5-6 minutes to infuse the cream with the mint.
  2. Meanwhile, break up the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl with the diced butter and honey.
  3. Strain the hot cream through a sieve onto the chocolate, butter and honey, stirring as you do; discard the mint sprigs. Continue to stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a wide, shallow dish, cover and chill in the fridge for an hour or until firm.
  5. Scatter your chosen coating(s) on separate plates. Take the truffle mix from the fridge and, using a teaspoon, scoop out a portion and shape into a sphere by quickly rolling it in your hands. (Do this speedily to avoid the truffle melting with the warmth of your hands.) Toss the truffle in your preferred coating and arrange on a plate.
  6. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  7. Place the truffles in a shallow plastic container, seal and refrigerate until firm and read to serve.
  8. Eat within 3-4 days.

  • 210 g light brown sugar
  • 3 tblsp maple syrup
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 g self rising flour
  • 3 bay leaves

  6. Fold flour mixture into creamed egg/sugar mixture. Pour into basin.
  7. Take a piece of baking parchment and cut a circle slightly larger than the basin. You want this large enough to tie it on securely with string. Butter this parchment and place butter side down to the pudding. Cover with Aluminum.
  8. Get a large pan, (put a ramekin on the bottom to sit pudding basin on) fill with hot water and steam for 1 and half hours....replace evaporated water with fresh boiling water as needed. If you have ever made Creme Brulee before, then you will recognize this procedure

  10. Place double cream in a bowl and add Irish cream. Whisk until desired consistency.
  11. Use your Kitchen-aid mixer if you have one.
  12. To serve, heat whiskey in a pan. Pour the whiskey over the pudding table-side and flambe.

  14. Alternatively you may bake individual portions. Adjust your baking time accordingly.

        Follow up to the turkey recipe. I am impressed, it tasted amaising. Making the butter lemon mixture and getting it under that turkeys skin was much easier than expected and well worth it. I will also make that cranberry sauce again it is soooooo yummy.

        Regarding the Roasted Pumpkin Soup, which I'm busting to make, we can't get ham hocks or ham bones at Christmas time in Australia. Can anyone please tell me what I can use in it's place? I'm thinking chicken stock, but the smokiness will be missing), so what else could I add to bring the flavour back to an equivalent with Gordon's recipe?).

        Ah! At last, Brussel Sprouts that taste like good food! (My sister prefers hers from the oven.) However, if you are prone to flatulence, I recommend you substitute some other nut for the chestnuts. Macadamia, pine, almonds might make suitable subs!

        Tried the Turkey, the stuffing, the roast potatoes and the brussel sprouts and the gravy....all was pure magic even though I would have preferred turkey a little bit warmer. Nothing than can't be ajusted second time round. Turkey and Gravy ar a little elaborate yet simple top carry out once you line up all ingredients. Many thanks to the great Gordon who has done our Country proud.

        Made this turkey last year and it was the best turkey by miles. The breast meat was juicy for over 7 days after cooking. Getting ready to cook another one for today and know it will be awesome again. Many kudos to Chef Ramsay and those who put this page together.

        One more thing... Whoever put together the gravy recipe forgot to include a step for the Chicken Stock. I reviewed the video and it gets added right near the start.

        This was the best turkey EVER! Made me a rock star in our house as even the kids that typically don't care for turkey were hovering around at just the smell of it cooking. All of us ate our fill and it was delicious! The gravy was incredible as well. Chef Ramsey if you ever read this, thank you a hundred times over!

        sharing with mere mortals like me . Happy Christmas to All :)

        I tried the mint truffles recipe but it will not firm up enough to form into balls. Possibly because the closest thing we have to double cream in the states is heavy whipping cream. Is there anything I can add to thicken it up?

        @anonymous: I don't think Gordy is rude....People here in the states are too politically full of themselves and too superficial. If you can't stand the kitchen....and he always give good direct criticisim, flavored with a bit of Ramsay Flare and Fire.....The cursing only makes it better.... I absolutely love him as he is!!!

        But great to see him with his mum and kids... :)

        yes roadt them first but add at the end so they don't get too soft (he said something like that in the show i recall) they have to be well cooked or you can get sick from undercooked chestnuts.

        Hey Gordon,I watched your show.I Love the poached salmon and pumpkin.I wish that you would not rely on parmesan so much.There is really no need and in fact it's not a great flavour.Very salty and so much fat.Who can taste the mushroom and pumpkin with that cheese?One other thing.Cut the eggs in the shortbread.That's wrong.It has to be made by hand not in a mixer with flour,sugar and butter with a bit of salt. and be pressed into a flan tin.Not rolled.

        cream together 210g of butter and 210g of light brown sugar.

        Pour a few tablespoons of maple syrup into pudding baisin and put 3 bay leaves at the bottom.

        Beat 4 eggs and add slowly to the creamed butter and sugar

        Sieve 100g flour and 3tsp baking powder. Add 1 tsp ground cloves and pinch salt. Fold flour into egg/sugar mixture. Pour into baisin.

        Take a piece of baking parchment and cut to circle slightly larger than the baisin. (large enough to tie it on securely with string. Butter this parchment. (butter side to the pudding) Cover this with Aluminum. Get a large pan, (put a ramekin on the bottom to sit pudding baisin on) fill with hot water and steam for 1 and half hours....replace boiling water as needed.

        FOR THE WHISKEY CREAM....

        150ml double cream

        Pepare and cut in half.

        Blanche in salted boiling water for 2 mins.

        Chop chestnuts....don't put in pan too early or they will turn mushy. 10 secs before you are ready to remove the sprouts, add a squeeze of lemon juice. Put in a bowl and serve immediately.
