    Cooking Instructions
    How long to cook your Boneless Crown of Turkey

    As a rule of thumb boneless crowns need 25 minutes per kg plus 20 minutes extra.
    Tip: Cover your turkey with foil during cooking and uncover for the last 30 minutes to brown the skin. To stop the meat drying out, baste it every hour during cooking.
    These cooking times are based on an unstuffed bird. It's better to cook your stuffing in a separate roasting tin, rather than inside the bird, so it will cook more easily and cooking guidelines will be more accurate. (If you cook your bird with the stuffing inside, you will need to allow extra time for the amount of stuffing and allow for the fact that it cooks more slowly.)
    Allow your cooked turkey to rest for about 30 mins before carving.

    Baldrick, does it have to be this way? Our valued friendship ending with me cutting you up into strips and telling the prince that you walked over a very sharp cattle grid in an extremely heavy hat?

    Instructions on back of my Turkey Crown (with bone)

    20 - 25 mins per 45grm plus extra 20 - 25 mins.

    Mine only weighs 2.4 kg so I estimate it will take between 2hr and 2 hr 15 mins approx.

    I wonder if anyone can tell me how long do I allow for 2 Turkey Crowns. Do I just double the time? Or will my fan oven cook them together as if they were just one? - they are both 2.33kg crowns...

    aaaaahhh conflicting times...I have a 3kg turkey crown ...no bones etc

    the wrapper says 20 mins per kg and 70 minutes extra at 190 degrees

    oh and its frozen and it says it takes 11 hours to defrost at room temp...that doesn't seem a lot...is that right?
  • JUD ANDERSON
    Hello I am new to the forum.
    Could I ask what the temperature we are talking about regarding the turkey crown please. My wife is filing for divorce if I don't get an answer before the turkey is burnt or we all get poisoned.
    Thanks
  • wallbash
    Turning the oven on at 10 , temp 140 degrees ( fan assisted) , will put the turkey in at 10.30 , for 2 hours and 50 mins , as suggested by Waitrose instructions . Bird will then rest for over 40 mins .
    Bird ( crown) weighs 2 .7 Kg
    Merry Xmas

    I have a very small turkey crown, just 1.2kg, so I guess it'll only take around 30-40 mins to cook then rest for half an hour.

    I use http://www.britishturkey.co.uk/cooking/cooking-calculators.html every year to calculate my turkey roasting times. Their calculator doesn't seem to cover crowns, but they offer live chat, so might be able to help.

    Can I ask a related Turkey crown cooking question?
    Do you need to put oil or fat on it to stop it burning/drying out? Turkeys aren't very fatty are they so I thought you would, but no one has mentioned it.
    I'm a turkey cooking virgin and I have no idea how it all works

    Just as if you were cooking one Katie. You only double cooking time if you are doing things in the Microwave.

    I always cook mine breast down till the last half hour, so it doesn't dry out.
    Turn it on its back to brown the breast for the last half hour,
