You need for about 10 persons:

- 2 apples, chopped (we recommend Gala apples)
- 2 carrots
- 2 onions, sliced
- 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 1 tsp. salt

- 0,5 dl French salad dressing
- 0.5 dl barbecue sauce
- 1-2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons steak sauce
- ¼ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- Sage, chopped

Here's how you do it:

Put the turkey in an ovenproof dish. Place the apples in the cavity. Add potatoes, onions and carrots around the bird. Bake it in the oven (225° C) for about 30 minutes.

Take out the turkey. Pour some water over the vegetables and lower the temperature to 175° C. Rub salt and pepper over the turkey. Spoon the other ingredients over the turkey.

Calculate about 30 minutes/per kg. Turn the turkey upside down for the last 30 minutes. The turkey is perfect when its internal temperature is about 70 ° C. Remove the turkey from the oven. Let it rest for about 15-20 minutes before slicing.

Pour some of the pan juices into a saucepan. Skim off some turkey fat and add some of it into the saucepan. Add the roasted onion and cook and stir until it´s browned. Add flour and stir some more. Add some more pan juice and turkey fat. Add some balsamic vinegar and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Add chopped sage, salt and pepper.

Enjoy the holidays!
