1
For the turkey, preheat the oven to 210ºC/Gas mark 7
2
Season the turkey well inside and out and place the stuffed turkey into a roasting tray, spread butter over the entire bird and cover with pancetta
3
Arrange the onions, leeks, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme and bay around the turkey. Then pour 1 litre of water into the roasting tray and cover the entire tray with tin foil
4
Make sure the tin foil is tightly covering the turkey and roasting tray so that the turkey will steam
5
Place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes. Then, turn the oven down to 170ºC/Gas mark 3 and continue cooking for another 2 hours
6
For the last half hour of cooking remove tin foil from the turkey and peel off the bacon
7
Turn the oven up to 200ºC/Gas mark 6 and roast until the skin of the turkey is golden brown and crisp. Once roasted remove from the oven and allow to rest for 45 minutes
