- 32g (13g saturated)
- 6.7g (2.9g sugar)
Cooking the turkey over a little water keeps it nice and moist, and gives lots of lovely juices for the gravy.
To freeze: prepare the sausages up until the end of step 1, then open-freeze on a baking tray, until solid. Transfer to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost in the fridge for 24 hours, then cook as per recipe. (You can’t prepare the turkey and freeze ahead, it will only take minutes on the day.)
