    Turkey Crown

    Turkey Crown 17th Dec 08 at 8:05 PM
    Its my 1st time cooking xmas dinner, and i'm feeding 8. ( ) I've ordered a turkey crown from local butchers but confused on cooking times. All the cooking times I have found seem to be for a whole turkey and I assume that the cooking time will be less for a crown.

    Also i've been watching the jamie olivers christmas dvd and he cooks the turkey in a tin on top of some veg and then uses the juices to make the gravy, can I still do this with the crown?

    I ordered the crown as I thought it would be easier but all turkey info seem to relate to a whole turkey, therefore am thinking of changing order to a whole turkey:confused:

    I too am cooking a turkey crown for 4 from the local butcher. I am guessing from the whole turkey instructions that for at 1.5kg weight somewhere between 1hr - 1hr 30mins but really it is a guess

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I like dark meat, so crowns aren't for me I did a Google and found this on Waitrose site - 45min/kg at gas 5.

    HTH - I suspect more people might be after this info

    The British Turkey website reccommends 20 minutes per kg and then 90 minutes at the end

    I am still imperial and use 20mins per lb +20mins. I usually check after the first cooking time and if the juices run clear I take off the foil to brown it for the last 20mins.

    I use these timings for all poultry and it seems to work!
