Method

  1. Place the onion and celery in a pan with the oil. Season with the salt and pepper and gently sweat until the onion is very soft. Add the garlic and fry, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Tip the onion mixture into a bowl with all of the remaining ingredients and mix together with your hands. To check that the stuffing is well seasoned, fry a flattened spoonful of it in hot oil, until cooked through. Taste and season as necessary.
  3. Push the stuffing into the neck end of the turkey. Cover with the skin and secure with a skewer.
