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

6
For the last half hour of cooking remove tin foil from the turkey and peel off the bacon
