Cooking the Christmas turkey can be quite a stressful and daunting task, so Steggles have launched a turkey hotline to help you cook the perfect Christmas dinner this year. Just phone 1800 STEGGLES to have all your questions answered - how long to defrost a turkey; how long to cook a turkey; should you stuff, truss, baste the turkey and any other hurdles that come before you during your annual turkey cook-off.
Having access to a hotline staffed with personnel trained in all things turkey will provide a huge amount of comfort to stressed-out cooks this Christmas. Steggles top three turkey tips:
Allow enough time! With frozen turkeys one of the most common mistakes people make is not allowing enough time for defrosting. And dont forget to find out how long you should cook the turkey for - larger turkeys can take around four hours or more to cook.
Get the right sized turkey. Just tell the hotline staff how many people you need to feed and theyll be able to tell you what size turkey you should buy.
Always handle poultry properly. After contact with poultry wash hands and all kitchen utensils thoroughly; and always ensure the turkey is properly cooked - the hotline can provide you with a number of ways to check this.
