Tesco Turkey in ten

WP_001210.jpgYou can buy these at Tesco , perfect for those who don’t want to spend the whole of time  in the kitchen.

It only costs just £5 and ready in ten minutes  in the microwave.

Simple to do just remove the turkey from the box, pierce the  bag and pop it into the microwave.

The “turkey in ten” is a frozen slow cooked turkey joint with pork, sage and onion stuffing and turkey gravy that can be blasted in the microwave and ready to eat on the dining table ten minutes later.

I wasn’t  not sure but I decided to get one to try . But i was shocked how lovely they where . Even my kids prefer this to a big piece of turkey .I personally loved it so yummy and not Dry lol

The meal is so easy and  comes with turkey  gravy.

It’s perfect for someone on their own or a small family !

Summer ” Delicious , yummy i love it !”

Ryan “Yum yum”

Ellie-may ” It’s good get more Mum”

  1. Put the sugar, butter, milk and evaporated milk into a pan and heat gently, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Bring to the boil and as the temperature rises, stir the fudge occasionally  be careful  the sugar doesn’t stick and burn.
  3. Continue boiling until a temperature of 116C is reached simple  test if the fudge is at this temperature by spooning a small amount of the syrup into some iced water, it should form a soft ball.
